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.admin | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth County Board of Freeholders, Monmouth County News, Tom Arnone | Tags: Arnone Report, Ashley Lauren Foundation, Freeholder Director Tom Arnone, Freeholders v Commissioners, Grown in Monmouth, Made in Monmouth, Monica Vermeulen, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, Off Shore Drilling Ban, Pediatric Cancer, Tom Arnone, Unfunded mandate | No Comments »

That was Mayor Adam Schneider speaking to supporters at his lower Broadway campaign headquarters after a recent evening of cold weather but satisfying voter feedback during his door-to-door visits.
“We’re hearing a lot of good things,” explained the man seeking an eighth four-year term as the chief executive of Long Branch. “They think the city is headed in the right direction.”
Clearly, it’s election season in the City of Long Branch. City voters will go to the polls on Tuesday, May 8 to elect a mayor and six council members.admin | Filed under: Greg Kelly, Long Branch, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News | Tags: 2018 elections, Adam Schneider, Greg Kelly, John Pallone, Long Branch Mayor Adam Schneider, Long Branch Mayors Race, Monmouth County News, Opinion | No Comments »

“This is pretty astounding. Not only are New Jersey Democrats doing better on the generic House ballot statewide, but the shift is coming almost entirely from districts currently held by the GOP. If these results hold, we could be down to just one or two — or maybe even zero — Republican members in the state congressional delegation after November.”
