S&P noted that while the Township continues to make its annually required pension contribution to the State of New Jersey, the State pension system is chronically underfunded. “Local government continues to pay its share, and historically the State has shirked its obligation,” stated the Mayor. “In the context of our review, S&P reiterated its concern regarding the long term health of the State system. I am hopeful that with a new Administration in Trenton, the State will take a more responsible approach to its stewardship of the pension system.”

Elizabeth Honig, 52, of the Morganville section of Marlboro Township, pleaded guilty in federal court today to stealing $2.8 million from a Veterans Administration program designed to help veterans find employment, according to a statement by Acting U.S. Attorney William E. Fitzpatrick.
Honig enrolled 182 veterans to receive federal funding to attend Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VARP) courses at Computer Insight Learning Center, an Eatontown company that she owns. The vast majority of the veterans were either not eligible for the training or did not attend at all. She collected $750 per month fees from the vets, and collected approximately $1.3 million from them of the $2,831,455 that the federal government distributed for tuition. She allowed the vets to keep the rest of the money paid to them by the VA.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: Acting U.S. Attorney William E.

Marlboro Mayor Jonathan Hornik says that two alleged bias incidents in his Township are a product of a post-election environment that allows people “with hate in their heart” to express that hatred in ways that are not appropriate.
Hornik said that since Election Day, a sidewalk on Ryan Road has been vandalized with a swastika and that a customer of the Costco on Texas Road was questioned by another customer about his religion. “Are you a muslim?” the man was asked twice in a firm manner, according to a facebook post that the mayor referenced.
Both incidents are being investigate by the Marlboro Police Department.
In a letter to the Marlboro Community posted on facebook, Hornik celebrated the religious and ethic diversity of Marlboro and expressed his sadness and disappointment in recent incidents demonstrating “hate based on this same diversity.”Art Gallagher | Filed under: Donald Trump, Jon Hornik, Monmouth County News | Tags: Bias crime, Cheri Jacobus, Corey Lewadowski, Donald Trump, Jon Hornik, Larocca Horinik Rosen Greenberg and Blaha, Marlboro, Marlboro hate crimes, Marlboro Mayor Jon Hornik, Monmouth County News, President Elect Donald J.

A Marlboro Police Officer is accused of punching a Colts Neck woman in the face, breaking her orbital and then falsely arresting and imprisoning the woman, according to a federal lawsuit filed in Trenton last week.
Officers Donna Gonzalez and Joseph Meglio forced themselves into the Colts Neck home of Marlene Mazur on January 24, 2016 in response to a dispatch call reporting an argument between a man and a women, according the the suit filed by Freehold attorney Thomas Mallon on behalf of Mazur. The complaint says that Mazur’s husband had gotten her car stuck in the snow and that by the time the Marlboro officers arrived at the Boundary Road home, the husband and their son had dug out the car and parked it in the garage.
Gonzalez and Meglio entered the home and demanded to speak to the husband. Gonzalez pushed Mazur against a wall and gestured as if she was going to punch her while Meglio followed the son upstairs and entered a room where the son’s children were staying.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Colts Neck, Marlboro, Monmouth County News | Tags: Chief Bruce Hill, Colts Neck, Marlboro, Marlboro Police Department, Marlene Mazur, Mayor Jon Hornik, Officer Donna Gonzalez, Officer Joseph Meglio | 7 Comments »
