Tony Fiore, a Monmouth GOP Vice Chairman and a Middletown Township Committeeman announced his endorsement of Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon to replace Senator Joe Kyrillos in the State Senate next year.
“As a Republican elected official in the largest municipality in the 13th legislative district, the upcoming retirement of Middletown’s Senator Joe Kyrillos is vitally important to us,” Fiore said. “For the past 28 years we have been extremely fortunate to have Senator Kyrillos representing our district as an advocate for residents and taxpayers of our district and the entire state. His leadership and advocacy on behalf of our township and our district will be sorely missed. The next Senator from the 13th must continue to fight for us in Trenton while working with our local leaders to help keep our local municipalities and county under fiscally conservative Republican control.
Surrogate Rosemarie Peters, Sheriff Shaun Golden, Congressman Chris Smith, Freeholder Serena DiMaso and Freeholder Tom Arnone celebrate their victories on Election Night
By Art Gallagher
Monmouth County’s Democrat leadership is spinning the shellacking they took last week from Sheriff Shaun Golden, Surrogate Rosemarie Peters, Freeholder Director Tom Arnone and Freeholder Deputy Director Serena DiMaso as a function of President-elect Donald Trump’s performance in the county.
Vin’s spin is laughable on many levels. Let’s hope he believes it.
The Monmouth GOP swept the county races because, under Golden’s leadership, they campaign the same way the govern. They work smarter and harder with less money.
“Walk the Line” is a documentary that chronicles one man’s quest for political identity. Lapell Crank sets out on a journey to become a politically informed citizen. The filming process follows Crank as he interacts with and interviews politicians, media figures and ordinary citizens. The documentary’s videographer, Christian Brown, was gracious enough to put together a clip of Freeholder Director Tom Arnone’s part in the film to help out with his campaign for reelection. Take a look!
The Monmouth County Republican team for County Offices, Sheriff Shaun Golden, Surrogate Rosemarie Peters, Freeholder Director Tom Arnone and Freeholder Deputy Director Serena DiMaso released a video ad this afternoon that reminds voters of the $4.5 million property tax cut and outstanding services the county government provides.
Boys Club: I bet you can’t find a photo of Vin posing with three women
The Monmouth County Democrats women problem goes beyond the fact that the party has only nominated 5 women to county or legislative offices, while nominating 26 men to higher office, since Vin Gopal became the Party Chairman in 2012. The Monmouth GOP nominated 17 men and 14 women during the same period.
Gopal defended his abysmal record of nominating women by calling his candidates for county and legislative offices “sacrificial lambs” in The Asbury Park Press’s coverage of Democratic Surrogate candidate Vincent Solomeno’s 2007 facebook post bragging about “a swedish whore named cindy.”
“Yes, we do not run women as sacrificial lambs in races just for the sake of running women,” Gopal is quoted as saying to The Asbury Park Press.
Monmouth GOP blasts Dems’ for gender bias against women
Vincent Solomeno, the Democrat candidate for County Surrogate, posted a message on facebook explaining that he was without a phone and that if anyone needed to reach him, “there’s this swedish whore named cindy who usually knows where to find me.”
The post was made in 2007 while Solomeno was a graduate student at the University of Amsterdam. It remained on his facebook page until at least three weeks ago when it was removed after MMM asked him about it.

“Obviously I don’t engage in prostitution,” Solomeno said in a phone interview. “I don’t remember making the post. I don’t think something I did nine years ago while I was in college disqualifies me from being the Surrogate.”
Monmouth Democratic Chairman “Goofy” Gopal and Belmar Mayor “Lawless Matt” Doherty also blamed a protest at a campaign fundraiser on the Monmouth GOP and this website
In an email to the members of the Middletown Board of Education and Superintendent of Schools Dr. William George, Monmouth County Democrat Chairman Vin Gopal blamed the controversy about his candidates for Surrogate and Freeholder campaigning in a Middletown High School North honors Government, Law and Public Policy Program (GLP3) seminar on the Monmouth County Republicans and this website.
“I feel sorry for the school district that the County Republicans and a local blogger are trying to create a witch hunt and create an issue that does not exist,” Gopal wrote in his email last evening.
There he goes again. Whenever things go wrong for Gopal he blames the Republicans, this website and the boogeyman.
Second Middletown Teacher caught engaging in Democrat partisan activity during school hours this year
A photo of Monmouth County Democrat candidates for Surrogate and Freeholder speaking to a seminar of Middletown High School North freshmen and sophomore participants in the school’s honors Government, Law and Public Policy Program (GLP3) Pathway was posted on the campaign facebook page of Surrogate candidate Vincent Solomeno last Tuesday with the caption “Thrilled to join Matt Doherty and Sue Fulton for Monmouth County Freeholder 2016 and speak to students about county government at Middletown High School North. Get involved!”
None of the three candidates have any experience in county government.
