Acerra To Seek Reelection in Ocean Township

Ocean Township Councilman Rob Acerra

Ocean Township Councilman Rob Acerra announced today that he is running for a second four year term on the non-partisan Township Council.  The election will be held on May 14.

In his announcement, Acerra said that he is an independent voice for Ocean residents who has been fighting against higher taxes, over-development and for local government transparency.

“For four years, fighting for Ocean Township Residents has been my top priority, and if reelected on May 14, it will continue to be,” Acerra said.  “With all the burdensome taxes and regulations coming from the politicians in Trenton, Ocean Township must continue fighting to keep local taxes stable and bring down the cost of doing business.  It is imperative that we fight to make Ocean Township more affordable for our seniors and families.”

Republicans Urging Guadagno To Run For Assembly

 

Kim Guadagno

Former Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno today said Republicans have asked her to run for State Assembly in the 13th legislative district.

So far, Guadagno has politely turned down the overtures, citing family issues and her commitment to her job as a partner as at the Connell Foley law firm.  “Too many non billable hours,” she said in a text when MMM raised the issue with her last month, “Thank you for thinking of me, but the timing is not good for me or my family.”  She also said she would run if she won the lottery.

Christie: Kushner’s vendetta hurt Trump’s presidency

In his soon to be released book, Let Me Finishformer New Jersey Governor Chris Christie claims that he was dismissed as Chairman of the Trump transition team at the behest of Jared Kushner, the President’s son-in-law, and that the Trump White House would be a much more effective place today had he, instead of Vice President Mike Pence, overseen the establishment of the Administration, according to a review of the book published at The Guardian.

At the heart of it is Christie’s desire to tell the American people that had his transition plan been adopted after Trump’s shock victory on election night in November 2016, the Trump White House would be a much more effective place today. Once he had been tossed overboard, the new transition team led by Vice President-elect Mike Pence had a “thrown-together approach” that led to appalling choices of senior personnel “over and over again”.

Freeholder Gerry Scharfenberger’s remarks upon being sworn in

As prepared for delivery

Thank you everyone and happy New Year.  It is an absolute honor to be standing here as a part of this new and much improved Freeholder board.  My first year on the board has been not only a great learning experience but also very productive.  One of the initiatives I am most proud of is the Faith Based initiative we passed early last year.  This is designed to provide services and programs without tax dollars in partnership with houses of worship and other non-profit organizations.  It’s also a way to right size government which in my opinion, has taken on way too many of the roles of the private and non-profit sectors over the years.  Another initiative I have worked on this year on behalf of the board is the creation of affordable housing in the county through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity.  So far, two municipally-owned lots have been identified in Middletown and one sub-dividable lot in Highlands to be turned over to Habitat at no cost for the construction of up to 15 units.  Meetings with several other municipalities are being scheduled to inventory similar lots that can be redeveloped for affordable housing.  This is the way it should be done – without the heavy hand of government and some costly, environmentally devastating unfunded mandate foisted upon the taxpayers.
