Josh Welle wanted to hit pay dirt with the technology company, Severn Pacific Inc, he started in the 2015. He told his supporters at a campaign rally in Neptune (advertised as a Town Hall) on Wednesday night that he planned to be CEO of the the next facebook when the launched the company.
Josh Welle is in a tough spot politically. At worst, he misled congressional ethics officials about a business of his that just resolved a six-figure tax-delinquency bill. At best, he set up the firm lacking a basic understanding of how to manage it.
The Daily Beast is hardly an “ultra-right wing” publication like Welle called MMM. Prior to this story, the only thing the Daily Beast and MMM agreed on is that Oliva Nuzzi is a great writer.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, News | Tags: 2018 elections, Daily Beast, Josh Welle, Josh Welle's delinquent taxes, Lachlan Markay, PAY DIRT, Severn Pacific Inc | 8 Comments »

Telling one’s own personal story is often the most powerful way to make a point, or, more importantly, to make people think. When grandiose statements entrenched in politically correct terminology are made, many may listen but few will hear.
When I hesitated in writing this column, I realized I was basking in hypocrisy. So instead I chose to write and risk.
New Year’s Eve 1984 I will never forget. I was 15. As the ball dropped, I leaned over to hug a friend and she met me instead with an overwhelming kiss.
As we fumbled upon the bed, I remember debating my next “move” as if it were a chess game. With the “Top Gun” slogan ringing in my head, I slowly reached for her breast. After having my hand pushed away once, I reached my “mark.” Read the rest of this entry »Posted: September 18th, 2018 | Author: admin | Filed under: Cory Booker, New Jersey, News, U.S. Supreme Court | Tags: brent kavanagh, christine blasey ford, Cory Booker, SCOTUS, U.S. Senate | 9 Comments »
County Clerk Reminds Voters about the New Vote by Mail Law which will affect the November General Election
FREEHOLD, NJ – Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon is reminding voters that a new law signed by Governor Phil Murphy in August dramatically changed the Vote by Mail rules in New Jersey. These changes are effective immediately and will impact the November General Election.
The new law mandates that all voters who voted by mail in the 2016 General Election be sent a Mail-In Ballot for the 2018 General Election, even if they did not request one. If these voters do not want to receive a 2018 General Election Mail-In Ballot, they must notify the County Clerk in writing to opt out.
“All of these 2016 Mail-In Ballot voters have been sent a letter from the County Clerk’s Office advising of this change, so it is important that voters be on the lookout for this letter,” said Clerk Hanlon.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2018 Elections, Christine Hanlon, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, News | Tags: 2018 elections, Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, Vote by mail | Comments Off on County Clerk Reminds Voters about the New Vote by Mail Law which will affect the November General Election
