Marlboro, NJ-With Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty looking like Chris Christie standing behind Donald Trump on Super Tuesday — and four other Democrat mayors standing behind him, Governor Phil Murphy today declared he had bi-partisan support for his plan to have the state’s municipalities set up charities to accept donations in lieu of property taxes. Murphy said that the recent income tax reform passed by Congress and signed into law by President Trump is a tax increase on New Jersey’s middle class. The scheme he is proposing would, if allowed by the IRS, reverse the impact of the tax reform law’s $10,000 cap on the state and local tax (SALT) deduction.

Boys Club: I bet you can’t find a photo of Vin posing with three women
The Monmouth County Democrats women problem goes beyond the fact that the party has only nominated 5 women to county or legislative offices, while nominating 26 men to higher office, since Vin Gopal became the Party Chairman in 2012. The Monmouth GOP nominated 17 men and 14 women during the same period.
Gopal defended his abysmal record of nominating women by calling his candidates for county and legislative offices “sacrificial lambs” in The Asbury Park Press’s coverage of Democratic Surrogate candidate Vincent Solomeno’s 2007 facebook post bragging about “a swedish whore named cindy.”
“Yes, we do not run women as sacrificial lambs in races just for the sake of running women,” Gopal is quoted as saying to The Asbury Park Press.
Belmar Mayor “Lawless Matt” Doherty lost in court again this week.
Belmar taxpayers are stuck with a $47,306 legal bill because Doherty placed a fraudulent interpretive statement on a bonding referendum ballot last summer.
Judge Katie Gummer ruled in Monmouth County Superior Court on Wednesday that Belmar taxpayers will pay the legal fees for the citizens who sued Dirty Doherty over the fraudulent statement which Gummer ruled was a Civil Rights violation. Belmar taxpayers are paying the legal fees for both sides of the case because of Doherty’s sneaky dirty lawlessness.
