Solomeno was the poorest performing Democrat on the County ticket last year, losing badly to Surrogate Rosemarie Peters by a margin of 58%-42%. He performed slightly better in his hometown of Hazlet where he lost to Peters, of Middletown, by 56% to 44%, while losing every election district in the township. His effort last year was hampered when he denied using prostitutes after a facebook post wherein he announced that a “swedish whore name Cindy usually knows where to find me” was discovered online.
Vincent’s maturity and judgement does not appear to have improved in the last year.
At yesterday’s Hazlet Day festival, Solomeno prevented the volunteer first aid squad from promoting an upcoming fundraiser. According to squad volunteers, Solomeno complained to the squad’s chief after one of the volunteers presented him with an invitation to the September 28 spaghetti dinner fundraiser. Evidently the candidate has a problem with the fact that the invitation announced that the event is sponsored by the Hazlet Republican Club. 100% of the proceeds of the event go to the first aid squad. There is no mention of any candidate or election on the invitation.
When I asked Solomeno if he really complained about the first aid squad promoting their fundraiser, he turned his back on me and walked away without responding.
The Hazlet Republican Club’s 10th Annual Pasta Dinner is on Thursday, September 28 from 5:30-8:30 at the North Centerville Firehouse. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for children under 12. All proceeds will be donated to the Hazlet First Aid Squad to benefit the Cadet Program.
