Bob Hutton Seeks re-election to the BOE

In Uncategorized on March 31, 2006 at 1:39 am

Letter to the Editor:
I write to announce my candidacy for re-election to the Ridgewood Board of Education, and I respectfully ask for your support. While my work over the past three years has helped to keep Ridgewood a school district in which many take pride, I believe there is more to be done. Our schools are our responsibility, and I will continue to work to ensure that every Ridgewood student receives the best education our community can provide.
In tending to the business of education, I contributed directly to the fiscal responsibility of the District, keeping critical dollars invested in education, not administration. The resources our community so generously provides for education must always be focused on producing well educated students with a life long interest in learning. In this regard, I worked with our state representatives on legislation to increase state funding for our district. Investing in education is an investment that pays off for the community and one that should always be a priority.
My work on the Board of Education is about our students and our community, finding new ideas to provide each student with a better educational experience. This takes not only a commitment from the Board, but from the Village’s families, student parents, and teachers. Education is not something that is solely taught in the classroom. It is an active engagement with the community, recognizing the unknown and learning from it.
It has been a privilege to serve on the Board these last three years and I look forward to your support in the coming months. With your support, the Board and I can continue to find challenging new opportunities for students while enhancing the stewardship of the Village’s educational resources. Our schools often define our town – known for tradition of excellence. With your support, that track record will continue.
I ask for your vote on Tuesday, April 18th.

Ridgewood to Start RevaluationThe Village of Ridgewood has recently been ordered by the Bergen County Board of Taxation to perform a revaluation for the year 2008. The process will start with the selection of a qualified revaluation company to work with the Division of Assessments. It is anticipated that the property inspections will begin in the fall of 2006. Residents will be notified in writing when the inspections start. Revaluations are required periodically to ensure the equitable distribution of the tax burden. The Village does not gain any additional revenues because of the revaluation. Ridgewood’s last revaluation was conducted in 2001.
