Hello Governor! I noticed your latest bout of uncontrollable virtue signaling (you should see someone about that). You have removed the state flag of Mississippi from New Jersey’s display of all 50 49 state flags at Liberty State Park. You are predictably triggered because Mississippi’s flag bears the Second Confederate Navy Jack in the upper flagstaff canton.
So, you oppose secession of the southern states? Virtue signal received, Governor. I suspect we all knew that without rekindling the civil war or vacating amnesty given to southern soldiers.admin | Filed under: New Jersey, Opinion, Tommy DeSeno | Tags: Governor Phil Murphy, Liberty State Park, MAGA hat, Mississippi State Flag, New Jersey, New Jersey State Flag, Opinion, Thomas DeSeno, Tommy DeSeno | 3 Comments »

The legislation currently under consideration in Trenton, and reportedly agreed upon by Governor Phil Murphy, Senate President Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin amounts to an unfunded burden upon local governments, Perry said in a letter to Buena Vista Mayor Chuck Chiarello, President of the New Jersey Conference of Mayors, with copies sent to the 13th District legislators; Senator Declan O’Scanlon and Assemblywomen Amy Handlin and Serena DiMaso, as well as Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden and Freeholder Director Tom Arnone.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Marijuana, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, News | Tags: Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin, Assemblywoman Amy Handlin, Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso, Freeholder Director Tom Arnone, Governor Phil Murphy, Legal Marijuana, Monmouth County News, Senate President Steve Sweeney, Senator Declan O'Scanlon, Sheriff Shaun Golden | 1 Comment »

Senator Declan O’Scanlon, (R-Monmouth), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, make the following remarks in response to Governor Phil Murphy’s proposed budget:
Watch O’Scanlon deliver his remarks:
“This budget won’t lift up the middle class. It will leave generations of New Jersey residents with no hope for a prosperous future.
“Even if the Governor’s rosy projections – of both revenue and savings – are accurate, we are still only a fraction of the way out of the hole we’re in.
“We can’t tax our way out of this mess. Without major reforms, it is a very real possibility that young public workers won’t even have a pension by the time they retire.
“I urge Governor Murphy to come to the table and hammer out a compromise with us. There is no other option,” Senator Declan O’Scanlon (R-Monmouth) said.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Declan O'Scanlon, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, New Jersey State Budget, News, NJ Senate Republicans, Phil Murphy | Tags: 2020 Budget Address, Budget Address, Declan O'Scanlon, Governor Phil Murphy, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, Senator Declan O'Scanlon | Comments Off on O’Scanlon Responds to Murphy’s Budget
