“When the VC does something as outrageous as this, you should thank your lucky stars that Paul is there to speak out.”

Forgive me, but this had better not be Aronsohn’s personal attitude.

I remember a similar sentiment (in that case, ‘the voters should consider themselves lucky I’m serving in the Council’ or the like) being articulated by a recent Councilwoman, the late Ms. Zusy. It was as unattractive coming from her then as it would be coming from Councilman Aronsohn now. Elitist and arrogant. Also typical, frankly, of modern progressives and political liberals, in my experience.

If it is solely your opinion, then, fair enough. But I sense very little in terms of limits to your adulation of Aronsohn and your corresponding condemnation of his four colleagues on the Council. So to me (I’m probably wrong), you come off as starry-eyed, and therefore not the type of person whose opinion I would generally rely on.

The fact that most comments are anonymous on this blog requires readers to evaluate the substance of each comment/opinion without regard to its source. This is at least as much of a good thing as requiring commenters to reveal their identity so you’ll know whose sentiments are being expressed. I’m sure you’ll understand that many in Ridgewood appreciate anonymity because they would prefer to avoid being personally flogged in public for their opinions. This is the favorite pastime of those who wish to politicize everything for no other reason than to quash dissent and preserve the status quo.

P.S. I’m just an ordinary Ridgewood resident and taxpayer (and therefore not Gabbert). Let someone like Gabbert or a councilperson lose sight of the public interest and I’ll be the first to join you in criticizing them. But for now I’m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. One person’s opinion.
