By Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

Happy December! I hope everyone had a terrific Thanksgiving with their family and friends!

The month of November was very busy for me and I would like to share what I have been up to around the County.

You may recall, last year we invited all fourth-grade students in Monmouth County to participate in an essay contest to help name our very own Monmouth County Recycling Mascot. Last April, we announced the first, second and third place winners of the contest. First place was awarded to Kiernan Turbitt of St. Leo the Great School in Lincroft. Kiernan got to name our first-ever recycling mascot, Recycling Rocky!

Arnone Report: Made in Monmouth Success! Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge Update

By Tom Arnone, Monmouth County Freeholder Director

Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

Hello, everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend and was able to enjoy time with family and friends!

I, along with my fellow Freeholders, am proud to announce the eighth annual Made in Monmouth event on April 13th was an absolute success!

This year, more than 5,000 shoppers supported the event, which showcased more than 260 vendors who displayed and sold their locally-made products. From furniture and jewelry to pet products and gourmet specialty foods, there was truly a wide variety of items for attendees to choose from.

Serving as liaison to the Monmouth County Division of Economic Development, I take great pride in hosting events like Made in Monmouth. When I created this program shortly after I joined the Board of Chosen Freeholders, my goal was to focus my attention on small consumer product manufacturers located within Monmouth County to help them grow their businesses. As such, I’m happy to say the County has amassed a list of nearly 700 Made in Monmouth companies and counting!

Arnone Report: County supporting business and education, keeping the roads safe and clean

By Tom Arnone, Monmouth County Freeholder Director

Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

I hope everyone is having a happy holiday season! It’s hard to believe the first day of winter is right around the corner when it feels like we just celebrated the end of summer!

As liaison to the department of public works and engineering, I want to ensure everyone that our employees have been preparing for any potential storms during the upcoming winter season. We have the best crews around who all have the same goal in mind – to keep our residents safe during any inclement weather. Our number one priority always has been and always will be safety.

Arnone Report: Paint the Town Pink, Shared Services, Repaired Bridges Opening

By Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

Freeholder Director Tom Arnone speaks at the NJTPA Board Meeting – Jan 22, 2018

Happy May! I hope everyone was able to enjoy the outdoors during the warm weather last week. After this rainy and cold spring, I am looking forward to the summer months ahead.

I know I always say that it has been a busy couple of weeks but it truly has been. I’d like to take some time to share with you what I have been up to and a few important dates to come.

First of all, I’d like to thank all of the municipalities that are participating in the annual Paint the Town Pink campaign. For those unfamiliar with the campaign, its mission is to raise awareness of the importance of getting an annual mammography and women’s wellness.

Freeholder Director Tom Arnone 

Spring is finally here! It’s great to see the trees and flowers begin to bloom and show signs that warmer weather is on its way. I hope everyone has been able to enjoy time outside and hopefully visit some Grown in Monmouth properties!

I’d like to thank everyone who participated in Earth Day events throughout the County, including beach sweeps and property cleanups. I had the chance to visit with volunteers who were cleaning up the area surrounding Shark River.

Arnone Report: Over the river and through….

By Monmouth County Freeholder Tom Arnone

Happy December! I would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season. I hope everyone is able to enjoy time with their family and friends in between all of the shopping.

Personally, I was very pleased to see nearly 1,000 shoppers stopped by our annual Mini Made in Monmouth last weekend at Covered Bridge in Manalapan. A spinoff of our widely popular Made in Monmouth event held each spring at Monmouth University, this smaller version featured 80 small business owners selling their locally made products and goods. It is truly a win-win for all involved – small business owners receive the support they need and shoppers can purchase so many great items right in time for the holidays.

Arnone Report: Grown in Monmouth

By Monmouth County Freeholder Tom Arnone

Happy Labor Day weekend, Monmouth County! As always, the summer months seem to fly by too quickly but lucky for us, there are plenty of fun activities and places to visit throughout the fall.

The Monmouth County Division of Economic Development was hard at work this summer connecting with local members of the County’s agriculture industry, sharing with them information about Grown in Monmouth. I would like to take some time to share a few details of this tremendous initiative that will continue to expand in the coming weeks and months. Read the rest of this entry »

How a Monmouth County man is revolutionizing the music industry, one vinyl at a time

ENGLISHTOWN — Late one evening in 2013, Dan Marter boarded a flight to Munich with $15,000 in his coat pocket, sealed in nothing more than a Ziploc bag. The cash was a mandatory requirement of a trip that would take the New Jersey entrepreneur deep into the German countryside. Marter, of Englishtown, spoke no German. Kandice,… Read the rest of this entry »
