WOOD-RIDGE — Students took over local government on March 1. At the regularly scheduled council meeting, Wood-Ridge elected officials stepped aside as Wood-Ridge High School students ran the show.
"It was awesome to be on the other side and work together," said "Mayor" Nicholas Donato after the meeting. "I've talked to Paul (Sarlo) about what's involved in being a mayor. It's interesting how much planning goes into everything from each department on how to run a town."
