During a candidates forum last February while competing for the Democrat nomination to challenge Congressman Chris Smith, Josh Welle told Democrat activists that his company, Severn Pacific, Inc., doing business as Crossdeck, was dissolved in the spring of 2017.
But an officer of Harvard Business Services, Severn Pacific’s Delaware business agent told Patch that Welle’s company submitted an address change on March 3, 2017 . The company, which Welle was the CEO of, then ignored multiple notices from HBS to pay its 2017 taxes. The company was finally dissolved last week, after MMM reported the $130,000 past due taxes.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2018 Elections | Tags: CD-4, Harvard Business Services, Josh Welle, Josh Welle's delinquent taxes, Micheal Bell, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, NJ 4, Severn Pacific Inc | 6 Comments »
Of Monmouth Freeholder Candidates, Only Curley Would Stick Property Taxpayers With His Medical Bills
The Democrat and Republican candidates for Monmouth County Freeholder each said they would not accept County funded health insurance if elected to the part time position next month.
Republican candidates, Freeholder Gerry Scharfenberger and Hazlet Deputy Mayor Sue Kiley, have long opposed part-time elected officials exploiting the taxpayers by taking excessive benefits. Democrat candidates Larry Luttrell and Amber Gesslein each told MMM that would not accept taxpayer funded health benefits if they are elected.
The Independent candidate, disgraced Freeholder John P. Curley, has been sticking Monmouth County property taxpayers with the cost of his medical care for most of the last two years and he opposed a recent resolution against the practice.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2018 Elections, John Curley, Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Politics | Tags: 2018 elections, Curley's health insurance, health insurance, John Curley, John P.

Josh Welle has been avoiding our phone calls, until this morning, but still won’t say what’s happening with the company he is apparently CEO of, Severn Pacific Inc.
Apparently prompted by our article on Tuesday reporting that the company he said was dissolved still exists and owes the State of Delaware $130,000, Severn Pacific Inc is, as of this morning, a corporation in good standing in Delaware with ZERO taxes now due.

In the Battle of the Bobs, Senator Menendez leads GOP nominee Bob Hugin by 6% among likely voters in the FDU Poll released this morning.
“However, it’s important to note that once the margin of error is taken into account, the election remains anyone’s game.”
On Monday, a Stockton University Poll put Menendez up 2%, also within the margin of error.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2018 Elections, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: 2018 U.S. Senate election, Bob Hugin, Bob Mendendez, New Jersey | 1 Comment »
The technology company that Josh Welle co-founded in 2015 still exists and it owes $130,424.14 in delinquent taxes to the State of Delaware, according to public records obtained on Monday by MMM.
Welle is the Democrat nominee for congress in New Jersey’s 4th district.
The candidate reported that his company, Severn Pacific Inc., was dissolved in his Financial Disclosure Statement filed with the Clerk House of Representatives on March 11, 2018, the day after MMM reported that he was delinquent in filing that report. His FDS says he was the CEO of the company.
During a candidates’ forum in February, while he was competing for the Democrat nomination for Congress in CD-4, Welle told the Democrat activists present that his company was dissolved and that no one owns it.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2018 Elections, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: 2018 elections, CD-4, Crossdeck, Delaware, Josh Welle, Josh Welle's delinquent taxes, Mercer County News, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, NJ 4, Ocean County News, Severn Pacific Inc, Welle the Weasel | 12 Comments »
