Ridgewood NJ, the group One Village, One Vote is the brainchild of residents Bob Fuhrman, Matthew Lindenberg, Stacey Loscalzo , Deborah Steinbaum and Siobhan Crann Winograd.
All were active in the high density development in the central business district .
Mystery surrounds the idea of eliminating the vote of the school budget ,especially one over $115 million dollars accounting for over 60% of Ridgewood property taxes .
Long time readers think this group has some hidden agenda attempting to hide increases in the school budget needed for building more classrooms due to the expected increase in students due to over development .
Others suggest eliminating the school budget vote is the first step to creating a more partisan town . The ultimate goal is to make our elections tied to democratic party machine and bring more development.
