Aberdeen Mayor Supports O’Scanlon’s Efforts To Limit Property Tax Hikes

Aberdeen Mayor Fred Tagliarini

We haven’t heard from Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop since Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon challenged him to pressure Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto to put the extension of the 2% limit on arbitration awards for police and firefighter salary contracts up for a vote. But Aberdeen Mayor Fred Tagliarini, a Democrat, called to say that he supports O’Scanlon’s effort.

Murphy would make New Jersey a Sanctuary State, Guadagno would follow the law

Guadagno issues challenge for two additional debates

Former Goldman Sachs banker Phil Murphy, the Democrat nominee for NJ Governor, declared unequivocally that he would make New Jersey a sanctuary state, should he be elected and should Congress fail to act on DACA before the March 5, 2018 deadline set by President Trump when he revoked former President Obama’s Executive Order which gave extra-constitutional protections to illegal immigrants who were brought into the United States as children.

Lt. Governor Kim Guadano, the GOP Gubernatorial nominee, declared she would follow the law, noting that she is a former federal prosecutor, state prosecutor and a former Monmouth County Sheriff. Read the rest of this entry »

Al Gore Coming To Monmouth County
