Keady running for CD-4 2020 Dem nomination

Former Asbury Park Councilman Jim Keady is taking another shot at the Democrat nomination to challenge  Congressman Chris Smith next year.

Keady lost the nomination to trespasser Josh Welle in 2018.

He announced his candidacy with two fundraising tweets yesterday that did not explicitly say he is running. He confirmed he is a candidate via text message and has registered with the FEC.

An unabashed Bernie Sanders supporter, Keady is running on a platform of Medicare for all, free college for all and the green new deal that would ban cow farts, gasoline and air conditioning.

Five other candidates have filed with the FEC as candidates for the CD-4 Democrat nomination.

Republicans Continue Golden Age Dominance In Monmouth County

COLTS NECK, NJ – With huge wins at the County level and 3 legislative districts, the Monmouth County Republican Committee had a decisively strong election night! At the top of the County ticket, Sheriff Shaun Golden won by over a 20 point margin. The GOP County freeholder candidates Tom Arnone and Nick DiRocco dominated as well.

On the local level, the GOP took control in Neptune City, Eatontown, and Atlantic Highlands, and flipped Mayoral seats to GOP in Sea Bright and Spring Lake Heights. The Republicans beat back challenges in Belmar, Hazlet and Shrewsbury Borough, and crushed the anti-law enforcement Democrats in Middletown, the largest municipality in the County, with a 2 to 1 margin.

Pallone Should Fight to Reauthorize Brand USA So They Can Continue to Help Lure International Visitors to Atlantic City and Other New Jersey Cities

By Chris Knudsen

The fall means one thing for sports fans in the Garden State: football is back! And with football comes tourism, both as fans travel to, from or through New Jersey. But it’s not just Giants, Jets and Scarlet Knights fans that are traveling on Game Day. New Jersey also sees an influx of tourism and revenue in Atlantic City related to sports betting.

The state Division of Gaming Enforcement released a report that revealed a total gaming revenue increase 13% in August 2019 compared to the same month last year with the total gaming revenue at $338.8 million. This August marked the 15th consecutive month of gaming revenue increases for casinos in Atlantic City.

In response, the President of the Casino Association of New Jersey Steve Callender said, “The summer of 2019 was the one of the best summers in recent years for Atlantic City. Casinos saw strong employment, visitation and gaming revenue. Two great back-to-back summer seasons continue to demonstrate that the casino industry’s ongoing investment in Atlantic City’s transformation into a first-class resort and business conference destination has staying power.”

Monmouth Democrat Chairman Brown Shouldn’t Survive This Cop Hating Hypocrisy

By Tommy DeSeno

Monmouth Democrat Chairman David Brown

The job of a county party chair is to ensure that candidates have no unforced errors, usually handled in the vetting process.  Democrat Chairman David Brown’s candidates this year have self-inflicted wounds.  He has dumped support for several of his own candidates, a sign of his own failure.  The Monmouth Democrat Party needs to strip him of his chairmanship for this collapse.

By the way – the correct pronunciation for “The Monmouth Democrat Party” is “Vin Gopal.” That’s who needs to dump Brown.

Let’s look at how David Brown treated two women very differently for their words about cops.

Jeana Sager is a Democrat candidate for the Township Council in Middletown.  I’m not here to articulate her true feelings about cops because I don’t know them. I don’t know them because David Brown sewed her mouth shut like a character on “A Handmaid’s Tale” before she could explain.

Which Carol Rizzo Should Neptune Township Residents Believe?

It’s An Issue Of Credibility…

Kathy Hogan and Gary Moll, Candidates for Neptune Township Committee

By Kendra Hogan and Gary Moll, Candidates for Neptune Township Committee

Since the first Candidates Forum in Neptune Township on September 23rd, one particular issue has been brought to the attention of all of the candidates for Township Committee several times; that of the possible health risks of Verizon’s 5G wireless transmitters. Kendra Hogan & Gary Moll, the Republican candidates, have favored a “go slow” approach citing a number of studies. However, this issue is one where one of their opponents, Carol Rizzo’s credibility comes into question. Read the rest of this entry »

Arnone Report: Freeholder Director Praises County Employees and other good stuff..

By Tom Arnone, Monmouth County Freeholder Director

Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

While I could say the last few weeks have been very busy, the truth of the matter is that the County stays busy around the year with ongoing projects and initiatives.

I would like to provide a few updates from the departments I oversee, including the County’s Department of Public Works and Engineering. I’m proud to serve as the liaison to this department and cannot praise enough the tremendous work these – and all – County employees do on a daily basis to maintain the high quality of life we enjoy in Monmouth County.

Last week, my fellow Freeholders and I held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the completion of the Heavy Equipment Maintenance Building (HEMB) at the Public Works Complex.
