Gopal calls Trump supporters sneaky and underhanded

State Senator Vin Gopal referred to supporters of President Donald Trump as “sneaky and underhanded”  in an email to Monmouth County Democrats today, according to a report at NewJerseyGlobe.com .

“This type of sneakiness and underhandedness is something I would expect to see from Trump supporters or the far-right, not someone who claims they are acting in good faith to build the Democratic Party,” said Gopal.

Gopal was referring to Jennifer Fluharty, a self-proclaimed nasty woman, who is supporting former Asbury Park councilman Jim Keady for the Democrat nomination to lose to Congressman Chris Smith in November. Read the rest of this entry »

Gopal endorses his tenant for Congress in CD-4

Josh Welle and Senator Vin Gopal

State Senator Vin Gopal has endorsed Josh Welle, address unknown, for the Democratic nomination to lose to Congressman Chris Smith.

Welle, who has already violated the Ethics in Government Act with late and inaccurate Financial Disclosure Reports, rented office space from Tic Tac Toe Development, LLC last fall, according to Federal Election Commission filings. Tic Tac Toe is Gopal’s company that paid $900K in cash last year for an office building in Tinton Falls.  The Tinton Falls property still has no mortgages or liens filed on it with the Monmouth County Clerk’s Office.

40,003 reasons Vin Gopal beat Jennifer Beck

Senator-elect Vin Gopal and Tinton Falls Mayor Gerald Turning. photo via facebook, posted Oct 9

By Art Gallagher

Jennifer Beck had an internal poll showing her leading Vin Gopal by 17% in September.  Gopal had a poll showing him losing to Beck by 6% in mid October. Another Gopal poll showed him winning by 1% last week.  Beck said last week that she thought it was a 3% race. So how did Gopal pull off a 7% victory on Tuesday night?

Gopal’s campaign knocked on 40,000 doors in Asbury Park, Eatontown, Long Branch, Ocean Township and Tinton Falls, according to a veteran Democrat operative who participated in the effort.

The Senator-elect had a fresh and energetic army of volunteers and paid canvassers join his committed troops in the field on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Beck’s campaign closed with a Hail Mary pass and a fire drill. Read the rest of this entry »

Long Branch Official: Mr. Gopal is not listed as a qualified, trained firefighter in the City of Long Branch

Vin Gopal, the candidate for State Senate in the 11th Legislative District, is not a first responder.

Gopal apparently knows he’s been caught lying to the public for months and is now trying, poorly, to explain himself.

The Asbury Park Press knows about Gopal’s misrrepresentations.  Inexplicably, APP has yet to report on Gopal’s dishonesty.   APP endorsed Senator Jennifer Beck for reelection over Gopal.

In his TV commercials, Gopal claims he volunteers as a first responder in Long Branch. Read the rest of this entry »

Former Dem Assemblyman takes Gopal to task for false and misleading campaign mail

By Michael J. Panter

Like Kevin Asadi and other residents, I recently received the letter from Senate candidate Vin Gopal which denounces the Assessment Demonstration Program (the “ADP”), implemented in 2013, as the source of high property taxes.

Since I have run in four state elections in Monmouth County, I have been in Mr. Gopal’s shoes.  Political operatives refer to the weeks before an election as the “silly season”, since candidates will say almost anything about their opponents to generate a headline.

However, there is a line which should never be crossed – candidates should not issue false or misleading information, since it not only subjects them to legal liability, but most importantly, it does a disservice to taxpayers. Read the rest of this entry »

Al Gore Coming To Monmouth County

Former Vice President Al Gore is coming to Monmouth County to support Democrat candidates up and down the ballot, according to an announcement of the Monmouth Dems’ website.

Gore is scheduled to appear at the Ocean Township Community Gym on Sunday, October 15 from 3 P.M till 5 P.M.

When last we heard of the inventor of the Internet and Global Warming campaigning in Monmouth County, he was embroiled in the “Crazed Sex Poodle” scandal.  Six years before NBC leaked the Access Hollywood tapes featuring Donald Trump and Billy Bush joking about grabbing pussies, Portland Oregon massage therapist Molly Hagerty accused Gore of  groping her and painfully squeezing her nipples over her clothes after she declined to rub his adductor magnus.

Property Tax Appeal Attorney Responds to Gopal’s Ignorance

By Kevin I. Asadi

Kevin I. Asadi

Monmouth County residents: I received this letter in the mail today from Vin Gopal. I’m sure he’s a nice guy, but a letter like this shows such a gross and shocking misunderstanding of how property taxes work, that I fear what damage he might do to all of us, should he win.

I handle property tax appeals as part of my law practice. Here is how it works, basically: the property you own is given an assessed value by the local tax assessor or by a revaluation company. In most counties, that assessment will remain the same year after year, until the town decides to perform a revaluation or a reassessment.

Whether your assessed value is $100,000 or $1,000,000, either way, your town needs a certain number of dollars in the kitty each year in order to operate. Take the amount of money the town needs divided by their total assessments, and the quotient is called the “general tax rate.” The property tax dollars you pay is the product of your assessed value times the general tax rate.
