Our Next Village Manager – Quentin W. Wiest, II?

In Uncategorized on March 6, 2009 at 9:06 pm

In what could best be categorized as one of the most bizarre twists of Village political life, former Ridgewood Mayor Quentin W. Wiest, II, spouse of former Ridgewood Deputy Mayor Betty G. Wiest, may be top contender for the Village Manager’s post if and when incumbent Manager James M. Ten Hoeve retires.

Mr. Wiest served as Ridgewood’s Mayor from 1986-1990. His government service experience extends beyond Ridgewood; he also served in a full-time capacity as Director of Public Works for the County of Bergen (Mr. Wiest, a politically active Republican, lost his appointment to that job once the Democrats took control of Bergen County government).

The Wiest’s currently reside on North Walnut Street in the Village. Quentin is now employed as a Senior Project Manager for Neglia Engineering Associates in Lyndhurst, NJ. Neglia provides engineering advisory services to local governing bodies, planning and zoning boards, boards of education, and other municipal bodies.

Best of luck to you Mr. Wiest!

  1. This would be a huge mistake by village council

  2. hey come on back little wezile.

  3. they all know who is going to be the person in the big desk.hay what about you know who.hummmmmm.yea that one.ooooooo.o,nooooooooooo.

  4. Incest is best so keep it in the family.

  5. No, no, no, say it aint so.

    He’s done a lot of good things for the Republican party and the town over the years. But, there’s a time for families to bow out of the spotlight and that time is now. No need to do a Clinton redux.

  6. yea then then going pay him more then jim. and i got to give up 5 days pay

  7. OMG – don’t let Betty near the place again- such a shame and so sad that she is no longer on the Council and I open the paper and see her in yet another photo with the current council-

    The town needs to hire new blood

  8. I think he would be quite good in the role. The political overtones do give me pause however.

  9. a you never know,he could turn out to be the best.

  10. a good luck jim.its time to rest.

  11. we have a person that we would like.you all know him and like him.so thats that.
