I've been editor of Ridgewood Patch since summer of 2010 and since have covered everything under the Ridgewood sun – contentious Valley Hospital hearings, Graydon Pool theatrics, zoning and development challenges, crime, education, county politics, the state of the Ridgewood downtown, and much, much more.
For a town of about 25,000 people, Ridgewood sure has a lot of issues up for debate. Between parking problems, downtown vacancies, pedestrian safety matters, budget cuts, rising taxes, development proposals, Graydon Pool, and the unresolved issue of Valley Hospital's expansion aims, there's no shortage of challenges weighing on the minds of residents, and there's often much division on the possible solutions to those challanges.
[Note: Ridgewood and Glen Rock Patch merged in December of 2011, so I'll be covering Glen Rock as well. Please feel free to reach out by calling or e-mailing me.]
