  4. I don’t know much about local politics, but I can tell this person has little chance of not being elected. He got national media attention for his vaccine stance, has money behind him and is running well produced Youtube ads.

  5. Yea no, above.
    That’s EXACTLY the point.
    We’re way to far ahead of political scumbags like Paul
    who are only in the game to line their pockets.
    Good god look the this picture.
    Are you going to trust someone who wears a pink suit
    and hangs with the likes of Paul and the Pooch?
    Don’t be Rich and Stupid again Ridgewood.
    STOP HIM IN HIS TRACKS

  6. Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it.

    Seven votes … we needed 7 votes for Keith K a few years back and we didn’t get them.

    Get up and vote against Vag on the first Tuesday of November.

  13. Hey look obviously he has some brains he’s running businesses pretty successful. I don’t know anything about this individual go to bed, but at the end of visual doesn’t do well as a councilmember you just fold them out it’s a simple as that.

  14. “why would owning buildings be a negative thing? Not sure why it would have anything to do with supporting this Vag dude.”

    Simple. Conflict of interest. Advocating for high density housing that may be inappropriate for downtown because his restaurants and buildings e benefits from a denser population

    He advocated for the garage at that end of the CBD and now complains that it’s too far away from the eastern end of the CBD for the elderly and handicapped so we need another more centrally located garage. What a self-absorbed a-hole.

  15. Not voting for a guy who doesn’t know that the Ho-Ho-Kus Brook runs past the high school. He kept referring to it as the Saddle River which is near the Duck Pond and cause far less damage when flooding occurs.

    He’s also full of it when he says the Woolworth property was completely in disrepair and he miraculously resurected it. That’s just not true. I remember Woolworths well.

  16. I’d never vote for him based upon that ‘wall’ that used to block cars from opening passenger doors in front of his restaurant. That display of arrogance is enough for me to vote for anyone else running for the office.

  17. Vote Hooban and let’s get rid of this self serving guy. Please donate to Hooban unlike this guy her supporters can not give 500-1,000 dollar donations.

  18. He obviously cares nothing for tax payers and home owners. When asked about pickle ball and healthbarn a business in a small park in the middle of a residential area HE made it clear that he doesn’t care about the neighbors of situations he supports.
    Who cares if it disrupts anyone the daily life of tax payers!

    He also doesn’t know the difference between a business and a foundation… the foundation is located in Lyndhurst NJ. Know the facts!

    Ms Hooban she would listen to people and try to work things out. She did not have a vested interest in either issues

    Paul gave his cell phone number for people to openly talk to him BUT he apparently had his mind made up about Pickle ball and Healthbarn the business ( even though he addressed what the foundation did NOT the business) so why would anyone talk to him. He made it clear where his loyalty lies and it isn’t with the tax payers! It’s with BUSINESS and anyone that can help his business.
