Ryan Bolton, an Eagle Scout and Ringwood resident of six years, identifies a need for consensus building in the bucolic community. “I don’t even like to think of us as Democrats,” Bolton says, “but as neighbors. Local politics is no place for the divisiveness we see on the national level. We shop at the same grocery store, dine at the same restaurants. We are all in this together.”

Quick to volunteer, Bolton became a member of the Executive Board at Cupsaw Lake a few months after moving to town. “I firmly believe that if there is something you want to change or impact, the responsibility lies with you to contribute.” It is this attitude that led Bolton to become an organizer of Ringwood C.A.R.E.S and to take a more active role in local politics. If elected, Ryan would like to work with members of the community to develop a plan of action that fully addresses the Ford Superfund cleanup. He also wants to clean up Skyline Drive and will work with landlords to increase occupancy rates, while developing incentives for new businesses. Additionally, Bolton hopes to introduce a proactive outbound communication system from the Borough with the goal of more openly engaging residents.
