Curley’s Unhinged Nutty Tantrum

Disgraced Freeholder John P. Curley was Censured and Reprimanded for, among other offenses, offering to teach a teenager “how to sweat a pipe.”

Kooky Curley calls for massive County spending increase

Disgraced Freeholder John P. Curley invoked Hubert Humphrey, Mark Twain, his father, brother, mother and God yesterday in a bizarre battle cry against his fellow freeholders and Monmouth County Republican Chairman Shaun Golden during the County’s annual Reorganization Meeting at Biotechnology High School in Freehold Township.

The audience clapped politely at the end of the rant while Curley glared at Golden who was sitting in the front row.

Missing from the audience was the small troop of supporters who showed up wearing I Stand With John Curley stickers at the Special Meeting last month when the absent Curley was Censured and Reprimanded for sexually harassing County employees and other atrocious behavior.

Monmouth Freeholders to strip Curley of most of his duties

The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders will strip disgraced Freeholder John P. Curley of most of his duties when the Board reorganizes on Friday afternoon at Biotechnology High School in Freehold, according to the meeting agenda.

Curley, who was Censured and Reprimanded by his colleagues last month for harassment, bullying and using vulgar language toward County employees and constituents—including a teenager, using homophobic slurs, and for lying to the retired Acting Supreme Court Justice who investigated the harassment complaints against him, has been the Freeholder Liaison to Brookdale Community College, The County Fire Marshall and Fire Academy, the Board of Health and the Division of Aging, Disabilities and Veterans Services.

The Arnone Report: Fighting Cancer

By Monmouth County Freeholder Tom Arnone

Monmouth County Freeholders proclaim Infinite Love of Kids Fighting Cancer Day

As an elected official, you have the chance to meet hundreds of people during your tenure. I would like to share a story about a few special people I had the honor of recently meeting in person during a meeting of the Board of Chosen Freeholders.

It all started a couple weeks ago when I was reading through a local newspaper and came across a story about a charity event held to raise funds for pediatric cancer research. As part of the fundraiser, members of the community, including first responders, volunteered to have their heads shaved by children. Helping to coordinate the event was the Gorsegner family of Middletown. Read the rest of this entry »

Fort Monmouth Reopens Between Eatontown and Oceanport

Freeholder Tom Arnone and Freeholder Director Lillian Burry commemorate the reopening of County Road 537 in Fort Monmouth

Less than two months after Monmouth County financed the purchase of the remaining available acreage of Fort Monmouth, thereby removing federal red tape from the redevelopment decisions of the property, the gates were removed from the entrances on Route 35 in Eatontown and Oceanport Ave in Oceanport as County Road 537 opened for vehicular traffic.

County, state and local officials gathered at the fort on Tuesday morning to commemorate the reopening.

“Government usually doesn’t work this fast.  In Monmouth County it does,” declared Freeholder Tom Arnone as he acknowledged the men and women of the County Department of Public Works and Engineering and their director, John Tobia, for their work in opening the road.

The road was closed to the public in 2011 when the U.S. Army moved the operations of the fort to Aberdeen, Maryland following the 2005 decision by the federal BRAC (base realignment and closure) commission decision to close the historic facility.

Monmouth County Freeholder Tom Arnone

Happy New Year! Last week I was sworn into my third term as Freeholder and I am excited and grateful to continue to serve the residents of Monmouth County. I would like to thank my family for their support and my fellow Freeholders for their continued dedication to our County.

I would like to congratulate my running mates, Freeholder Serena DiMaso, Sheriff Shaun Golden and Surrogate Rosemarie Peters on their well-deserved re-elections. I would also like to congratulate Lillian Burry on her selection as the 2017 Freeholder Director and John Curley on his selection as Freeholder Deputy Director. I look forward to working with you both, and the entire Freeholder Board in the coming year. As always, I would like to wish all of our mayors best of luck as we begin the New Year.

The Arnone Report: Fort Monmouth Progress, Monmouth Park needs help

By Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

Fort MonmouthHello Monmouth County! What an incredible few weeks it has been here throughout our beautiful county. The weather has been near perfect, providing great opportunities to visit all the wonderful places and activities we have to offer.

I have some very exciting news to share about the Former Fort Monmouth property. The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders provided final approval last week to guarantee $35 million in notes and bonds through the Monmouth County Improvement Authority (MCIA). The funding will be used to revitalize the property which has been closed since 2011 and the potential impact of this redevelopment on our residents is enormous. It was the right thing to do for the region.
