Westwood NJ, a Westwood man wants to fly anti-abortion flag at Borough Hall. The borough resident and anti-abortion activist is requesting the display, citing the rainbow flag flown at Borough Hall for LGBT Gay Pride flag.
In April 2017 , Jan Phillips attempted to strong arm the Ridgewood council in the name of civility by pushing them to hang a Gay Pride flag over Village Hall ,at the time it was rejected for various reasons and many readers suggested ,if the council flew the pride flag over Village Hall , that would open the door to flying all kinds of other flags .
The former Ridgewood Mayor was even attacked by the then editor of the Bergen Record and called a racist and homophobe . The Ridgewood blog suggests , the borough of Westwood send the legal bills to the Bergen Record , if they were good enough to call people racists and homophobes they should be also willing to pay the legal bills they may have caused to incur .
