Ridgewood NJ, according to North Jersey media 570 Village of Ridgewood residents signed a petition to eliminate the Ridgewood School Budget Vote. A proposed ballot question would ask voters to approve moving school board elections, held annually in April, and Village Council elections, held bi-annually in May, to the November general election date. Thereby eliminated the annual school budget vote and public oversight over the massive $115 million dollar School budget .
A group called One Village, One Vote led by the usual suspects on Monday submitted 570 petitions for the ballot question to municipal clerks and notified Bergen County, triggering a process that will play out during the coming months.
