Ridgewood NJ, Your ballots will be coming soon. When it comes to The Village Council, DO NOT VOTE FOR PAM PERRON OR MAHMOUD HAMZA. Pam Perron in zoom meetings has stated that she is (1) in favor of high-density housing (2) in favor of moving all elections to November, in which case citizens would no longer be able to vote on proposed Board of Education budgets (3) in favor of combining the Village Council and the Board of Education (educate yourself, Pam, this cannot be done at the local level, it has to be done by state legislators) (4) in favor of giving big money to the library. Somehow she also thinks she could be a negotiator for police and fire contracts, something that Village Councilmen do not do. Mahmoud Hamza is in favor of high density housing and he believes astro turf is safe. Worst of all, both of these candidates are backed by the worst of the worst – Halaby, Aronsohn, Sonenfeld, Hauck, Harwin, Winograd, Phillips, Willett, Lehman and more have signed on for them. If you want to see our village go all the way downhill on the course that Aronsohn started, vote for them. If you want to preserve Ridgewood with sensible development and smart, informed representatives, vote LORRAINE REYNOLDS, Sergio Alegre, and Bernadette Walsh.
