Thumbs up Independent Coalition for a Better Edgewater

The Independent Coalition for a Better Edgewater is meeting at the Community Center Wednesday evening, May 20th at 7pm.

We ran candidates in the last election and only lost by 47 votes. The Democrats who won were originally appointed to their positions and then were able to run as incumbents. As a matter of fact every member currently on the Council was originally appointed so the public never had a chance to vet them and we really know nothing about them such as education, work history and previous community involvement.

While running this past election the Democratic candidates made promises to clean the Veteran's Park ball field to the highest standards and they are not keeping those promises. Councilman Vidal said they got the message of the last election where 800 voters DID NOT vote for them, but they were back to business as usual at the very next meeting.

They won't answer questions from the public and when the public speaks they try to shut them down either at meetings or by bullying them on the street. They are making the public pay for any information they ask for, literally and figuratively.

Thank you to everyone who supported the Independent candidates last November. The battle is over, but the war goes on.

In this case the war is against the public at large. The Council has decided it doesn't represent the entire town, only the ones who contribute the most their re-election, to keep the power in place while they continue to rip us off.

They just bonded out for over 19 million dollars to clean up the park. Votee Park in Teaneck had to clean up a similar situation that occurred at the same time toxins were found in Edgewater and they are done, under budget and up and running.

We now are spending more on the clean up and re-clean up of Veteran's Park and have a bigger debt than eight upper Bergen County towns combined.

If you care about the future of our town and you don't want it to turn into Detroit, where we'll have to sell off our assets (like Veteran's Park) to pay off our debts, please join us and support our grassroots organization.

Hope to see you there!

Arrow Re: Independent Coalition for a Better Edgewater

I invited the reporter from the Record to attend. Maybe she'll come and actually interview some of the locals as to what's going on, instead of just getting her talking points from the Borough Administrator.

It's called journalism, as opposed to being a stenographer for the power structure. You know the fourth estate, a serious responsibility that is supposed be the eyes and ears for the public.

Re: Independent Coalition for a Better Edgewater

Edgewater's governing body have accused the ICBE of being "against everything."
Not true, the ICBE advocates for honest, open government, that represents Edgewater's residents.
Unlike Edgewater's governing body, ICBE member's refuse to brought and paid for by deep pocketed developers who only care about their profit.

Throughout the years members of the ICBE have made suggestions to the Mayor and Council on ways to improve our quality of life in Edgewater; however, our suggestions were always disregarded.

Sadly, the mayor and council view anyone with an opposing idea as a threat, and thereby missing an opportunity to broaden their view point and the possibility of an idea that is beneficial to the residents of Edgewater.

Re: Independent Coalition for a Better Edgewater

Don't forget Coalition members, please join us tonight at the Community Center, 7pm.

Unlike the Democrats who hold their meetings at a restaurant owned by the same entity they're pretending to sue for re-contaminating Veteran's Park, we meet in a public building where there is no quid pro quo.

I don't know how comfortable it would be to eat in a restaurant as a member of a body that was suing the owner, but you know the Democrats on the Council nothing is beneath them and their hangers-on. They're SHAMELESS.
