Election Day Predictions 2017

Kim Guadagno will be elected the 56th Governor of New Jersey by less than 2000 votes.

The Associated Press will not call the NJ gubernatorial race until Thursday due to the failure of the vote reporting systems in Essex, Hudson, Camden and Middlesex counties which will prevent the vote from being counted.  CNN and NJ.com will report rumors that the New Jersey election was hacked by the Russians.

Steve Sweeney will survive the millions spent against his reelection by the NJEA.  The teachers’ union will lose considerable influence in Trenton and its membership will revolt against leadership and reform the association.  Guadagno and Sweeney will have a stronger and more effective reform agenda than Christie and Sweeney had during the first Christie’s term.

Stephanie Murray

Stephanie Murray, the Deputy Mayor of Middletown, will be honored by the New Jersey State League of Municipalities’ Women in Municipal Government Committee in Atlantic City during the League’s annual convention on November 15th.

Murray was selected as an award recipient because of her many achievements since beginning her public service in Middletown Township in 2012. When Superstorm Sandy devastated the community five years ago, Murray worked tirelessly to help those affected and created the Volunteer Corps that managed volunteer services during the Township’s recovery process. In addition to her leadership role during Sandy, Murray has made it a priority to bring our Township’s history to the forefront. In 2014, she served as Chairwoman of Middletown 350, a yearlong celebration of the Township’s founding in 1664. She also reinstituted the Historic Preservation Commission, served on the Zoning Board of Adjustment, and is a member of the Middletown Cultural and Arts Council. Read the rest of this entry »
