  2. It reads to me that the seat will be filled during November’s general election, not in a special election.

  3. The last time this happened was when Annie Zusy passed away. The council opted not to appoint someone and went straight to election. Let the people decide.

  4. “Is the Douchebag going to run?” Which one there’s been so many.

  5. It will be referred to as a “special election“ because there was no scheduled municipal election this year. There’s a Board of Education election, but no municipal election scheduled.

  6. There is concern that an appointment might be made at at the Monday Night meeting.unless there is proper notification to the public this may be illegal.

  7. What Monday night meeting?

  8. Like I said they’re going to do whatever they want to do .

  9. No shady appointments like the BOE?

  10. Who’s the douchebag?

  11. Jeffrey Voigt is the douchebag. He famously said this into the microphone on camera during a meeting. And there were numerous incidents where he used vile language. Such a class act that guy.

  12. Douchebag, rurik, gwen

  13. Where’s Dom Nizza when we need him?

  14. Nizza is in Troll Hell.

  15. The village idiots will do what they want as always! Remember, they know the majority of residents are so drunk on Ridgewood Kool Aid, they just reply with its what’s best for Ridgewood while they steal from your pockets! How about the 2.5 mil land purchase on 17?

  16. Time for new blood. These people are unbelievable they worry about pickle ball.
