Atlantic Highlands Councilman Stephen Boracchia took to facebook yesterday evening and demonstrated why the Regular Republicans, who have been controlling the local party for the last several years, have lost 4 of the last 5 contested municipal offices.
Boracchia impugned the integrity of the Monmouth County Republican Organization team of candidates for promoting the fact that they do indeed have the support of the Monmouth County Republican Organization.

MMM has learned that Atlantic Highlands Councilman Tom Hayden, a Democrat first elected last November, has sold his Garfield Ave home with the closing expected before the end of June. Hayden is said to be moving to the Leonardo section of Middletown where he bought a home from family member in a sweetheart deal and shrewd estate planning.
If Hayden resigns anytime before September 13, three of the six seats on the Borough Council—all currently held by Democrats—will be up for grabs on November 6.
This matters now to Atlantic Highlands Republicans, because the County Committee members elected in the contested primary on Tuesday, June 5 will choose the Republican candidate for Hayden’s seat.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Atlantic Highlands, Monmouth County News | Tags: 2018 elections, Atlantic Highlands, Atlantic Highlands Republicans, Monmouth County News, Tom Hayden | 1 Comment »
