Ridgewood NJ, the Ridgewood Blog Endorses Reynolds, Walsh and Alegre for Village of Ridgewood Council :
Lorraine Reynolds has been a tireless advocate for Ridgewood taxpayers and residents against local bullies be they institutions or personnel.
Bernie Walsh has long been and independent voice on the council championing open spaces and moderate growth, leading the village in senior advocacy during the COVID19 pandemic.
Sergio Alegre who is Chairman of the Zoning Board of Adjustment and has come to grips with land-use and quality-of-life issues facing Ridgewood residents and businesses.
The Village of Ridgewood faces serious quality of life and budgetary challenges due to the policies of a previous administration often referred to as the “3 amigos”. These past polices of prompting high density housing without any of the infrastructure necessary to support it , have placed the Village of Ridgewood in a permanent cycle of ever increasing property taxes and ever lowering quality of life . The coronavirus pandemic has only worsened an otherwise serious situation .
If you doubt our analysis ask yourself , how many additional police and firefighters will be needed? Where is the water coming from ? What about sewage ? Don’t forget traffic ,parking and congestion and of course the expanded footprint for the Ridgewood School system .
Mediating these disastrous policies will remain a high priority well into the future ,therefore it is extremely important to keep anyone connected with this prior administration ,once again the “3 Amigos”, out of public office for the foreseeable future!
