Ridgewood Resident Barbara Sacks Another Likely Candidate for Village Manager’s Position

In Barbara Sacks, Jim Ten Hoeve, Ridgewood New Jersey, VC on March 13, 2009 at 3:59 pm

In addition to Quentin Wiest, II being a likely contender for the soon to be vacant Village Manager’s position, count on seeing Barbara Sacks hand carrying her resume and application over to Village Hall.

Ms. Sacks has extensive NJ based experience as a municipal manager. She has served as Borough Manager in Fairlawn, Township Manager in South Brunswick, and City Manager in Clifton. Her management style is reported to be “absolutely no nonsense/no favoritism,” and she has a documented track record of being very tough with police, fire, and public works unions.

Sacks, 60 years old, resides on North Irving Street (within easy walking distance of Village Hall), and currently serves as a volunteer appointee to the Village’s Citizens Safety and Advisory Committee. Her present full time position is the Executive Director of the Cornell University Cooperative Extension Center located in Valhalla, NY.

  3. big deal.we seen them all.yea just what we need, some one at the age of 60.you know what that means.this would be her last job.so she has a name for her self.what is she going to make us see some thing that we never seen befor.yea hello.I herd that one.we all herd of fairlawn.hummm.she will not be the boss the mayor is,and thats the way it is.we vote in and vote out,and no nonsense yea,tough on unions ha,ha,ha,yea ok.the tax girl.

  4. we dont need a person that thinks that they are smarter then all the unions in town .because that would be a bunch of bull shit,we need a person that will work with all the depts in town,not go after them.help is what the town needs.some depts are very low in workers and they need some one that is going to back them and make it what it should be.then maybe we can make this town look like it should and that is people shine like it did in the past,but people we can not do that with no workers they are the back bone of the town.and that is the way to the tax paying people of this great village,thanks mr shine.

  5. yes thats so true.

  6. can you say no nonsense,o,boy.stay valhalla.

  7. how come she cant stay in one job.she is all over the plac.is that going to happen in ridgewood to ,stay a few years and go.just what we dont need,is a 3year manager.no one will fix the town in 2to 3 years.we need people long term like 15 to 25.years if you can take it.

  8. ok barba,if you get the job are you going to help the depts that need people or are you going to look the other way.the police and fire are the only ones geting workers .it is not fare.its time to replace workers when they leve.you ask jim he knows what depts need personel.I been in town for 27years and i seen some depts are so low in staf that i dont know how they get by.look for your self and go to the depts and ask.but ask the workes not town hall,they will bull shit you.so if you would like the real story on things you need to no! well the workers will not bull you.so we will all see who will be the next boss,but who is the boss of the town, mangager or the council and mayor,hummmmm,well people what do you think who is the boss.i see from my house on maple av its the mayor at times.

  9. I hope so.

  10. maybe we should hire some one for 6,months at a time and see how that go,s or maybe a year.we dont like we vote the person out,thats all.
