Democratic Councilman Michael DuPont Remains Confident He Will Be Reelected
Monmouth County Democratic Chairman Vin Gopal told The Two River Times that the Republican Party will win control of the Red Bank municipal government in this November’s election.
Gopal, who launched a campaign of personal destruction against Red Bank GOP Chairman Sean DiSomma in 2013 when he issued a false press release asserting that DiSomma, then a candidate for council, had a warrant for his arrest in Texas over an unpaid traffic violation, whines incessantly to TRT reporter John Burton over the video that led to the resignation of Art Murphy from the borough council. Murphy, the Council President at the time of his resignation last week, also resigned his candidacy for reelection.
Gopal apparently has more of a problem with the fact that Murphy was caught vulgarly belittling his constituents than with the former Council President’s actions. Regardless of whether or not the Republicans released the video, which they deny, they did not fabricate charges, as Gopal did in 2013 against DiSomma.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2015 Elections, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democrats, Vin Gopal | Tags: Art Murphy, Cindy Burnham, John Burton, Linda Schwabenbauer, Mark Taylor, Michael Dupont, Mike Whalen, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democratic Chairman Vin Gopal, Red Bank, Sean DiSomma, Two River Times, Vin Gopal | 6 Comments »
