  1. Please, someone who has the welfare of the Ridgewood residents in mind, run for election. We need someone who instead of concentrating on beautification of the windows, bathrooms, and other purely cosmetic needs will support real needs such as: varied lunchroom times so everyone has a seat, 3-D printers, things of educational value and not things that merely drive up the tax rate! I’m not qualified but I’ll happily support someone who is.

  2. Have you got your nominating petition filed yet loud mouth James Foytlin?

  3. ask Marty Brooks

  4. Yea just as I thought a loud mouth with no balls!.

  5. why don’t you run ?

  6. Tell you what, I will run against you if you run. Show us …….if you have a pair of balls.

  7. lol , the only big mouth coward is you

  8. PJ these creepy stalkers are a bunch of HOMO’s

  9. The only coward here is you James. I challenged you and what do you do……you ignore the challenge like a little bitch and call me a coward.

  10. PJ dont waste you time with tolls , a big mouth challenge from and anonymous poster very impressive lol

  11. sound like an X fire chief too me

  12. Ok, guys, school is over. You are too big to be calling each other childish bullying names. We desperately need responsible people to run. preferably people who either have children in our schools or ones whose children have graduated less than 20 years ago. We also need someone who can speak for the childless or whose kids have long ago graduated who can speak up for the huge number of us in that position. I am tired of hearing “What are you complaining about? This is Ridgewood. Nothing should become before our kids and their education.” There are many parents with children currently in, or approaching entrance, who also feel that the current board members use the above statement (which I have actually heard) to allow them to forget that not everyone in town is rolling in money.
