New definition of arrogance – Ridgewood Board of Education members

BOE

by the staff of The Ridgewood Blog

Ridgewood NJ, Giving new meaning to the height of arrogance –

No mention of this November’s Board of Education election was ever noted on the Board’s official website. That’s right fellow taxpayers, the election was never referenced by the Board, at all.

No notice of election date was posted, no candidate bios were posted, no “please vote” message was posted, no election results were posted. NOTHING AT ALL.

What a bunch of arrogant morons the Board has become.

Our advice – VOTE THE BUMS OUT WHEN THE TIME COMES.

Reader says , ” Just add water, and–Poof! Instant enemies “

mister-rogers-trolley

Kaufman is clearly normal, in that, he’s not interested in becoming enemies with anyone. But that doesn’t mean he will not start bumping into people in his new role as a member of the district’s board who already have ill will toward him because they are naked partisans or perceive him as a threat to their particular fiefdom. Just add water, and–Poof! Instant enemies.

Cristopher Kaufman: “We, as a community, can have different opinions, philosophies or ideas, but that shouldn’t make us enemies”

clock

To my fellow residents, No matter how you voted, we need to remember, we are one community and we all want what’s best for this community, even if our way of achieving that differs from one another. We, as a community, can have different opinions, philosophies or ideas, but that shouldn’t make us enemies. We need to set better examples for our children and our fellow residents. We must learn, or remember, to treat each other with kindness and respect. I tried to run this campaign with a positive message and showed nothing but respect for Mr. Loncto throughout. I may not agree with everything he’s done, but I wish him nothing but the best and appreciate his years of service. To those that did support me during this campaign, I can’t thank you enough. When you have the support system that I had, and the community behind you, you feel like you can do anything. We still have a lot of work to do, but it’s the beginning of change. We are all #RidgewoodStrong.

Ridgewood NJ, back in August the New Jersey Teachers Union (NJEA) along with Ridgewood’s REA endorsed  the ethically challenged Bob Menendez ,

Even more ironic is that the NJEA along with Ridgewood’s REA endorsed Senator Menendez after allegations that the Senator flew to Dominican Republic. to have sex with under age prostitutes .
