Pooper Man to sue Holmdel Police Department

Dr. Thomas Tramaglini, the former superintendent of schools in Kenilworth who is facing pooping charges in Holmdel municipal court next month, has informed the Holmdel Police Department that he plans to file a lawsuit against them for releasing his mug shot, according to a report on NJ.com.

The pooper man claims that Holmdel police should not have photographed him during his arrest in May because the public defecation, lewdness and litter charges are low-level municipal offenses.

“It’s like getting photographed and fingerprinted for a speeding ticket,” his attorney Matthew Adams said in an email, NJ Advance Media reported. Read the rest of this entry »

Eric Hinds seeks to take over the Holmdel GOP

By Art Gallagher

Eric Hinds

When I asked Holmdel Township Committeeman Eric J. Hinds if he was behind the slate of Republican County Committee candidates challenging 15 of the 20 Monmouth County Republican Organization candidates with The Holmdel Republican Committee slogan in the primary next Tuesday, June 5, he said, “I’ve been educating people about how to get more involved in their community.”

That evasive answer sounded a lot like the answer that one of the challenging candidates gave me earlier. “I want to learn how to get more involved in my community,” said Mary Vassilakos.  When I asked Vassilakos how the team of candidates came together, who was the leader and how was the slogan chosen she said, “The Holmdel Repbublican Committee is the name of the facebook page.”  “You named your slate of candidates after a facebook page?” I asked.  “You’re making it sound like some kind of conspiracy.  I don’t like your questions. You don’t have my permission to quote me.”

Hinds failed to educate his candidates about Off the Record protocol.  So I’ll do it:  You go off the record and get the reporter’s agreement prior answering a question.  Read the rest of this entry »
