Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone and Deputy Director Serena DiMaso

Freehold, NJ- The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #30, Monmouth County Superior Officers’ Association supports the reelection of Freeholders Tom Arnone and Serena DiMaso, announced the association’s president, Shawn Reece.

“Public Safety is one of the most important functions of county government,” Reece said. “Freeholder Director Tom Arnone and Serena DiMaso have always recognized that truth and have made sure that our members have the support, training and resources we need to keep Monmouth County a safe and secure place to live and raise our families.”

Freeholder DiMaso is the daughter of a New York City Police Officer and her sister is a NYPD Captain.  As a member of the Holmdel First Aid Squad, DiMaso is a first responder herself—on call 24/7—to save the lives of those facing medical emergencies.  Our work in law enforcement, the sacrifices we make and the risks we take, is not theoretical for Serena and that shows in how she conducts herself as a leader of Monmouth County’s government.

Contrary to nonsense being spread by the Monmouth County Democrats and the The Asbury Park Press,  Deputy Freeholder Director Serena DiMaso, a Republican, did not receive health benefits as compensation for being a Freeholder from 20012 through 2015.  Neither DiMaso nor Monmouth County violated Freeholder resolutions passed in 2009 and 2010 prohibiting the county from providing health benefits to freeholders. DiMaso’s participation in Monmouth County’s health care plan did not cost the taxpayers of the county any money.

Monmouth Dems were Sketchy on Taxes, Spending and Debt at Manalapan Debate

Sketchy Sue Fulton

Sketchy Sue Fulton

Sue Fulton, a Democrat candidate for Monmouth County Freeholder, said she would reduce property taxes by 5% last week at a candidates forum at the Four Seasons 55+ community clubhouse in Manalapan.

Fulton did not say what programs she would cut, or what fiscal gimmicks she would employ, to come up with the $15.275 million. In a television commercial that started airing today on cable, Fulton said,”Cutting taxes won’t be easy. But I learned a long time ago, the the tougher the job, the harder you work.”

Fulton and her running mate, Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty, who we already know is sketchy, criticized their opponents, Freeholder Director Tom and Arnone and Deputy Freeholder Director Serena DiMaso, for the $4.5 million dollar property tax cut they made this year. Read the rest of this entry »

DiMaso expresses disappointment in presidential choices at Manalapan debate

manalapan-debate-800x600Deputy Freeolder Director Serena DiMaso was challenged by her Democrat opponent, Sue Fulton, to declare her differences with the Republican National Platform at a candidates forum on Thursday night at the Four Seasons 55+ community in Manalapan.

Both DiMaso and Fulton were both aware that Democrat operatives were seated in the audience recording the exchange for use in the barrage of TV commercials that will attack DiMaso starting next week and extending through election day.

Rather than get into a same sex marriage or abortion debate by answering the GOP platform question, DiMaso deftly pivoted and addressed the presidential candidates.

Sheriff Golden Announces New Storm Evacuation Program: KNOW YOUR ZONE

know-your-zone-2-2-800x529Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden announced the KNOW YOUR ZONE program today in Avon-by-the Sea.

A tiered coastal evacuation plan, KNOW YOUR ZONE, identifies specific coastal evacuation zones  (A, B, C and D) which helps emergency management officials target evacuation orders to those areas that are at the most risk, based upon threat, strength, direction and forecasted storm surge. The public outreach and educational program, Know Your Zone, is designed to educate residents, businesses and visitors on the coastal evacuation zone in which they live, work or vacation.

Not to be confused with flood zones, which are insurance designations and building codes determined by the National Flood Insurance Plan, the tiered system creates 4 distinct evacuations zones A, B, C, & D and will allow for a clearer and more decisive messaging, when evacuations are needed.

Monmouth County has received a $206,000 federal grant from the Department of Defense to prepare a Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) for Naval Weapons Station Earle.

A cooperative land use planning effort between affected local government entities and the military installation, the project looks to create compatible development measures to keep the base operational, while also looking out for the surrounding public’s health, safety, and welfare. When land use decisions impair the effectiveness of a military base, the utility of the installation and its mission can be compromised.  Mission constraints can lead to base closure. Monmouth County will contribute $32,500 in staff time and materials to the study.
