MANALAPAN -A $1.6 million phase one renovation that will bring the 117,000 square foot Monmouth County Library Headquarters to a 21st century technological state-of-the-art transformation will begin by June.
The announcement was made by Monmouth County Library Commission Chair Renee B. Swartz who reported at a commission meeting earlier this month the final details on the extensive program which is being coordinated by Library Interiors of Brick.
“The Commission has been working and planning a proposal for two years,” Swartz said, “and we are confident we have not only contracted a top of the line coordinator to see it through, but also to accomplish the transition with the least amount of disruption for our patrons.”
Susan Unger Cohen and Jack McNaboe are running for reelection to the Manalapan Township Committee, according to a press release from Manalapan GOP Chairman Glen Mendez.
Cohen, the Township’s mayor, has served on the governing body since 2007, with the exception of 2011 when she took a year off for family reasons. She was also mayor in 2012 and 2013 and is credited with leading the Township through Superstorm Sandy.
McNaboe was appointed to the committee to fill a vacancy in 2013. He was elected to complete the term he was appointed to and was elected to his own full term in 2014. The current Deputy Mayor, McNaboe was also served as mayor. He has been a member of the Planning Board for 10 years.
Custom made signs urging voters to support Donald Trump for President were vandalized and then stolen last week from the Yorktowne Center shopping plaza in Manalapan, according to Michael Dalton, the owner of the plaza.
Dalton said he installed two signs, one 4×6 and one 4×8 on his property encouraging visitors and drivers passing the plaza to forgive the GOP presidential nominee for his vulgar language and to disregard media reports that denigrate the candidate and suggest that he is losing the election.
“Don’t believe the media they are BAD,” the signs declared.
Monmouth Dems Solomeno and Doherty flaunt their lawlessness
Even if he did have sexual relations with that woman, Cindy, the Swedish whore (he says he didn’t and the facebook post was a joke among friends who had lost their phones) Vincent Solomeno did not break any laws that day in Amsterdam where prostitution is legal.
But in an amazing admission at the candidates debate in Manalapan last week, Solomeno admitted he would break the law with impunity should he be elected Monmouth County Surrogate.
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 »
Deputy 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.
Manalapan Mayor Mary Ann Musich announced during a Township Committee meeting last night that the pigs that arrived at the farm at the corner of Route 33 and Millhurst Road on Tuesday were removed from the property by the end of the day on Wednesday.
Following the meeting, Musich told MoreMonmouthMusings that the pigs were removed after Township Attorney Roger McLaughlin cancelled a meeting with a developer who is preparing a proposal for the property. McLaughlin informed the developer that there will be no discussions so long as there are pigs present on the farm, according to Musich.
