Chris Smith – The Real Deal

By Rosalie Avin

Chris Smith , Congressman 4th district, A REAL Advocate for His Constituents

Stories demonstrating his deep concern for the issues of the people in New Jersey are often understated by the media but to the people whose lives he has impacted, Chris Smith is a hero and a person who deserves to be re-elected to the fourth district by a landslide. Teah and Joseph Evans want their story to be shared so that voters will understand the character and the resilience of this incredible man. It is their hope that stupid, vitriolic ads will always be ignored. Congressman Chris Smith has represented the fourth district with compassion, concern and awareness.

PAY DIRT Hits Welle From The Left

Josh Welle answers a question at this Jackson ‘Town Hall’ in August with the assistance of a flash card

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.

But PAY DIRT,  a weekly newsletter by the the Daily Beast’s Lachlan Markay, blasted Welle’s duplicity and incompetence to its readers on Thursday.

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.
