I am confused- Mr. Karben- Aren't you one of the "bloc" voters or did you leave the fold?

I've been supported by part of the bloc and opposed by part of bloc depending on election. But the purpose of the article is to set forth context for the raging debate around all of us- thanks for reading and for commenting.

"Perhaps the bridge New York most urgently needs to help build is not across the Hudson River, but between the diverging communities that inhabit the valley that abuts it." And you're not for the Ward System Ryan? Seems to me that you should be promoting it. You are completely right that we need to embrace new ways of balancing the various interests in Ramapo. I for one would much rather be working with the ultra orthodox than choosing between fighting them, resenting them or fleeing. A sustainable community must have room for everyone and a voice for everyone.

Excellent coverage Ry. Entitlement is running rampant in this community, and it needs to stop.
