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.

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.

Welle’s Company Owes $130,000 In Delinquent Taxes

Josh Welle thanked Sen Menendez for his mentorship during the Dem Convention in Atlantic City last month

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.

Bob Hugin, the GOP nominee for U.S. Senate and Senator Bob Menendez are statistically tied with five weeks to go before the polls close on November 6, according to a Stockton University Poll released this morning.

That’s why a growing number of Democrats are publicly endorsing my campaign.”
