MMM publisher Art Gallagher will be Tommy G’s guest this afternoon at 4:06 PM on the best afternoon drive time radio show in New Jersey.
Tommy and Art will be discussing the tragedy in Parkland, Florida—and the apparent police failure there. We’ll discuss weather or not schools in NJ should have armed police officers and/or teachers.
We also address the tragic shooting in Asbury Park last week that resulting in the death of 10 year old Yovanni Banos-Merino.
Should prisoner’s be able to vote in New Jersey? Is that a social justice issue? You’ll love Art’s answer to that question.
If all goes as planned, we’ll finish the segment by grading Governor Phil Murphy’s first month in office.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County Life | Tags: Art G and Tommy G, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, TommyG Show | Comments Off on Art G and Tommy G on the radio this afternoon

These days it seems that in order to oppose someone politically, it is necessary to “ist” them. If they disagree with you they must be a fascist, communist, racist, sexist, socialist, etc. I don’t need to do that to voice my opposition to Assembly members Eric Houghtaling and Joann Downey. Demonizing them is not necessary.
Mr. Houghtaling and Ms. Downey are not evil, they’re just incompetent as elected representatives. They voted yes on a budget that took state aid away from many school districts in LD11, including Ocean Township. During the LD11 debate, Mr. Houghtaling was asked if New Jersey should become a Sanctuary State since his party’s candidate for Governor said it should. Mr. Houghtaling responded that he didn’t have an opinion on the issue. I dare say he might be the only person in New Jersey who doesn’t. He still hasn’t come up with an answer.

The Monmouth County Democrats endorsed former Goldman Sachs executive Phil Murphy, of Middletown, to be the Party nominee for Governor in the June 6 Democrat Primary at their secret convention in Wall Township this afternoon, according to a facebook post by Fox News Contributor Julie Roginsky.
The endorsement traditionally gives the favored candidate superior ballot positioning within the County in the Primary election.
Murphy has been considered the runaway front runner for the nomination since Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop announced he would not seek the nomination last September. Fulop endorsed Murphy, as did several Democrat County Chairs and Party Leaders. Senate President Steve Sweeney announced that he would not be a candidate in early October and backed Murphy.Posted: January 22nd, 2017 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2017 Elections, 2017 NJ Gubernatorial Politics, Monmouth County Life, Phil Murphy | Tags: 2017 elections, 2017 Gubernatorial race, Julie Roginsky, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democrats, Phil Murphy | 2 Comments »

By Freeholder Gary J. Rich, Sr.
With all the vitriol surrounding this year’s Presidential election, it would be easy for voters to believe that the disfunction of Washington extends down to all levels of government. Fortunately for the residents of Monmouth County, that assumption couldn’t be further from accurate.
Over the last several years, the all-Republican Freeholder Board in Monmouth County has delivered year after year of the highest caliber of government services, while maintaining the utmost attention to fiscal responsibility. It is no coincidence that Monmouth County is one of only 33 counties in the country to hold a AAA bond rating from all three rating agencies, a distinction we have now held for 18 years in a row. From 2012 through 2014, the current Freeholder Board held the County tax levy flat while simultaneously cutting millions of dollars in operating costs from the County budget.admin | Filed under: 2016 Elections, Gary Rich, Monmouth County Life | Tags: 2016 Elections, Gary Rich, Monmouth County News, Serena DiMaso, Tom Arnone | Comments Off on Arnone and DiMaso are Right Choice for Monmouth County

Monmouth GOP: We’re not run by Debbie Wasserman-Schultz or Hillary Clinton
Monmouth County Democrat Chairman Vin Gopal has a canny knack for getting otherwise good journalists to print stories based on his libelous allegations that have no basis in fact.
In 2013 Gopal issued a Friday evening press release accusing a Republican Red Bank Council candidate of having a warrant out for his arrest in Texas. MoreMonmouthMusings contacted Texas authorities to confirm the story and found that it was false. But several respected publications ran with Gopal’s lie before retracting their story after MMM published the truth.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Belmar, Matt Doherty, Monmouth County, Monmouth County Life, Monmouth Democrats, Monmouth GOP, Vin Gopal | Tags: Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty, Boathouse Bar and Grill, Dirty Doherty, Lawless Matt Doherty, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democratic Chairman Vin Gopal, Monmouth Democrats, Monmouth GOP, Salt Waterfront Belma, Senator Cory Booker, Tim Harmon, Vin Gopal | 8 Comments »
FREEHOLD, NJ – Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon announced important reforms in how Monmouth County voters can apply for Vote By Mail ballots with the County Clerk and how the Board of Elections can receive voted ballots from voters.
The reforms are effective immediately under a new law signed by Governor Chris Christie on August 10, 2015.
“The new law impacts New Jersey voters who, by necessity or by choice, have another individual submit a Vote By Mail request and/or election ballot on their behalf,” Hanlon said.
The new law reduces number of voters for whom a person can serve as “messenger” from 10 to three.
It also limits the number of voted mail-in ballots transmittable by a “bearer” to the County Board of Elections to three ballots.admin | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth County Life, New Jersey, News | Tags: Christine Giordano Hanlon, Declan O'Scanlon, Vote by mail | 2 Comments »
