Jonathan Hornik will run for a fourth consecutive term as Mayor of Marlboro Township.
First elected in 2007 when he defeated incumbent Republican Dr. Robert Kleinberg in a race that got statewide attention when Kleinberg incurred the pubic wrath radio personality Jim Gearhart and Asbury Park Press columnist Bob Ingle by falsely claiming Gearhart’s endorsement. Kleinberg then went on the air with Gearhart the day before the election to argue with the host and defend his campaign mail.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Jon Hornik, Monmouth County News, News | Tags: Bob Ingle, Carol Mazzola, Jeff Cantor, Jim Gearhart, Jon Hornik, Marlboro Mayor Jon Hornik, Marlboro Township, Monmouth County News, Robert Kleinberg, Tommy G Show | 1 Comment »
Pearl Lee, the Republican candidate for Red Bank Mayor last month, told MMM that she reached out to Monmouth Republican Chairman Shaun Golden to express her interest in challenging Democrat Assembly Members Eric Houghtailing and Joann Downey in the 11th legislative district next year.
Lee, 64, a retired small business owner, had never sought elected office before securing the Republican nomination for Red Bank Mayor last year as a write-in candidate in the June primary. She sought the nomination after learning that the local party failed to field a candidate to challenge Democrat Mayor Pat Menna.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, News | Tags: 2019 elections, Caroline Casagrande, LD 11, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, NJ Assembly, NJ Legislature, Pearl Lee, Red Bank, Rob Acerra | 1 Comment »

NewJerseyGlobe is reporting that Josh Welle said he is considering as run for State Assembly in from the 13th Legislative district.
“It’s something I’m taking a look at,” Welle told the New Jersey Globe. “I’m going to take the next few weeks to see if that makes sense and see if it’s the best way for me to serve.”
Welle, who is registered to vote in Virginia, did not say if he would seek the Democrat or Republican nomination for Assembly. He’s been a registered Democrat for less than two years, declaring himself a D after he was turned down for a White House Fellowship in the Trump Administration in 2017. Shortly thereafter he started running for the Democrat nomination for Congress from New Jersey’s 4th district.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County | Tags: 2019 elections, Allison Friedman, Assemblywoman Amy Handlin, Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso, Freeholder Gerry Scharfenberger, Josh Welle, Kim Guadagno, LD13, Steve Massell | 5 Comments »
Will the “Women’s March Asbury Park” Protest the Latest “#MeToo Villain” Neil deGrasse Tyson, Appearing Here on Thursday?
By Tom DeSeno
No, they won’t. The feminist group Women’s March Asbury Park will not protest the appearance of a man now thrice accused of sexual misconduct at his work and school, one woman claiming to have been drugged and raped.
They won’t; the Women’s Convention won’t. The Progressive “outrage team” won’t protest. The “outrage team” is the political apparat of the Asbury Park City Council, who usually protests any social injustice, real or imagined. But none of them will protest Tyson.
In fact, in this self-proclaimed haven of woke progressives and social justice warriors known as Asbury Park, not a single tattooed feminist will show up at Paramount Theater this Thursday with a protest sign against Tyson. There will be ZERO support for women who say they were sexually harassed, molested and raped. For the love of Bill Cosby, why not?
I’ll tell you why the feminists will fail to show for these women at the end of this piece. First let’s set the stage.admin | Filed under: Asbury Park, Opinion, Tommy DeSeno | Tags: #MeToo, Asbury Park, Asbury Park Outrage Team, Neli deGrasse Tyson, Opinion, Tom DeSeno | 2 Comments »
By Congressman Chris Smith
President Bush was not only a hero of World War II—brave, tenacious fearless and awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for heroism under fire—but he was also an extraordinary family man who deeply loved his wife Barbara and family and spent his entire public life pursuing peace and an end to the cold war. He inspired selfless public service—a thousand points of light—and generosity and compassion for others, especially those in need. As both President and Vice President, he visited my district and the biggest takeaway from those experiences as well as working with him in Washington was how gracious and kind and humble he was. Despite being the most powerful political leader on earth, he regarded the issues and solutions to problems as far more important than himself—truly amazing.admin | Filed under: News | Tags: Barbara Bush, Congressman Chris Smith, George H.W.
