By Tom DeSeno

Congressman Chris Smith today urged all fire departments, career and volunteer, to apply for federal SAFER (Staffing for Adequate Fire & Emergency Response) grants that are available from FEMA. The grants are for the recruitment and retention of “front-line” firefighters. The application period is February 15, 2019 through March 22, 2019 at 5 p.m. ET.
“All eligible career and volunteer fire departments in the Fourth District are encouraged to apply for these Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grants, which help increase the number of firefighters and first responders to provide our communities with more security,” Smith said. “As we have already seen, this grant program has strengthened our district’s local fire departments and volunteer organizations in the past.”admin | Filed under: Chris Christie, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, News | Tags: Congressman Chris Smith, FEMA, Fire Departments, Middletown Fire Department, SAFER Grants, Trenton Fire Department | No Comments »
Pay up or get locked up
Senator Declan O’Scanlon today announced his plans to introduce legislation that would prohibit State entities from entering into civil settlements for less than the amount that has been stolen from social safety net programs and offering immunity from criminal prosecution. The legislation comes as a direct result of recent investigations into Medicaid fraud settlements in Lakewood.
“The notion that people who have knowingly received benefits they were not entitled to would only be required to pay back half of that amount of money is completely ludicrous. It’s basically like letting someone get away with stealing from taxpayers. That’s unacceptable.”admin | Filed under: Declan O'Scanlon, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: Lakewood civil settlements, Medicaid fraud, New Jersey, Senator Declan O'Scanlon | 1 Comment »

Governor Phil Murphy’s net approval rating has declined 13% after his first year in office and he is less popular than Governors Christie and Corzine were at this stage of their terms, according to a new Monmouth University Poll released this morning.
“Murphy started his term with greater public goodwill than his recent predecessors, but he has now fallen behind them. The most troubling result may be the large number of his fellow Democrats who continue to take a wait-and-see attitude. It seems he has yet to score a defining win with his base despite spending a significant amount of energy pushing a progressive agenda,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.admin | Filed under: New Jersey, Phil Murphy | Tags: Monmouth Poll, Monmouth Poll.
