Trenton NJ, former Governor Chris Christie is expected to announce next week that he is going to run for president. The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake writes that despite abysmal poll numbers, “signs are building that Christie will again decide to run for president at what is decidedly the wrong time — even more than 2016 was. And while he has insisted this isn’t just a kamikaze mission to take down Donald Trump, it’s difficult to see how it could amount to much else.”

Ridgewood NJ, “One Village One Vote”, is not the first to promote “the dangers of taxpayers voting in public schools”. School safety during voting is a false claim made for years by “educators” looking to hide from tax payers what is going on in public education. Recent protests demonstrate the need for more parent involvement in the education process not less. Administrators clearly do not want parents near schools so the lack of learning will not be challenged.

Ridgewood NJ,  the “One Village One Vote” campaign is  filled with misinformation and  if it passes, residents will lose their right to vote on BOE budgets. The  “One Village One Vote” campaign is a blatant attempt to to remove taxpayer oversight form the school budgeting process .  The $115 million school budget account for approximately 2/3 of the Village property tax bill.

The most offensive part of this claim is the idea that because many residents choise not to vote , that means no one should get that right .

But for unionized workers, union dues come out of their paychecks and go to political causes—and they aren’t consulted on where that money will go.

In July, The Wall Street Journal’s Tom McGinty and Brody Mullins published an eye-opening report that “Organized labor spends about four times as much on politics and lobbying as generally thought.”

Ridgewood NJ, Concern over mail-in balloting is rising as the presidential election approaches. Last month, we highlighted California Governor Gavin Newsom’s brazen mail-in ballot scam: an executive order mandating mail-in ballots “to preserve public health in the face of the threat of Covid-19.” Judicial Watch challenged the executive order in federal court, prompting the state legislature to pass a law ensuring that mail-in balloting would take place.

In June in a response to an Open Public Records Act request to the Bergen County Clerk’s Office  it was discovered that 710 Ridgewood voter ballots or approximately 15% were REJECTED in connection with the May 12, 2020 Board of Education, Board of Education Budget, and Village Council General Election.
