Republicans Continue Golden Age Dominance In Monmouth County

COLTS NECK, NJ – With huge wins at the County level and 3 legislative districts, the Monmouth County Republican Committee had a decisively strong election night! At the top of the County ticket, Sheriff Shaun Golden won by over a 20 point margin. The GOP County freeholder candidates Tom Arnone and Nick DiRocco dominated as well.

On the local level, the GOP took control in Neptune City, Eatontown, and Atlantic Highlands, and flipped Mayoral seats to GOP in Sea Bright and Spring Lake Heights. The Republicans beat back challenges in Belmar, Hazlet and Shrewsbury Borough, and crushed the anti-law enforcement Democrats in Middletown, the largest municipality in the County, with a 2 to 1 margin.

Pallone Should Fight to Reauthorize Brand USA So They Can Continue to Help Lure International Visitors to Atlantic City and Other New Jersey Cities

By Chris Knudsen

The fall means one thing for sports fans in the Garden State: football is back! And with football comes tourism, both as fans travel to, from or through New Jersey. But it’s not just Giants, Jets and Scarlet Knights fans that are traveling on Game Day. New Jersey also sees an influx of tourism and revenue in Atlantic City related to sports betting.

The state Division of Gaming Enforcement released a report that revealed a total gaming revenue increase 13% in August 2019 compared to the same month last year with the total gaming revenue at $338.8 million. This August marked the 15th consecutive month of gaming revenue increases for casinos in Atlantic City.

In response, the President of the Casino Association of New Jersey Steve Callender said, “The summer of 2019 was the one of the best summers in recent years for Atlantic City. Casinos saw strong employment, visitation and gaming revenue. Two great back-to-back summer seasons continue to demonstrate that the casino industry’s ongoing investment in Atlantic City’s transformation into a first-class resort and business conference destination has staying power.”

Which Carol Rizzo Should Neptune Township Residents Believe?

It’s An Issue Of Credibility…

Kathy Hogan and Gary Moll, Candidates for Neptune Township Committee

By Kendra Hogan and Gary Moll, Candidates for Neptune Township Committee

Since the first Candidates Forum in Neptune Township on September 23rd, one particular issue has been brought to the attention of all of the candidates for Township Committee several times; that of the possible health risks of Verizon’s 5G wireless transmitters. Kendra Hogan & Gary Moll, the Republican candidates, have favored a “go slow” approach citing a number of studies. However, this issue is one where one of their opponents, Carol Rizzo’s credibility comes into question. Read the rest of this entry »

Arnone Report: Freeholder Director Praises County Employees and other good stuff..

By Tom Arnone, Monmouth County Freeholder Director

Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

While I could say the last few weeks have been very busy, the truth of the matter is that the County stays busy around the year with ongoing projects and initiatives.

I would like to provide a few updates from the departments I oversee, including the County’s Department of Public Works and Engineering. I’m proud to serve as the liaison to this department and cannot praise enough the tremendous work these – and all – County employees do on a daily basis to maintain the high quality of life we enjoy in Monmouth County.

Last week, my fellow Freeholders and I held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the completion of the Heavy Equipment Maintenance Building (HEMB) at the Public Works Complex.

Satan’s Motorized Scooters in Asbury Park

By Tommy DeSeno

Asbury Park Deputy Mayor Amy Quinn

This column will mention Asbury Park Deputy Mayor Amy Quinn as well as her friends.  Nothing is their fault.  There’s just no way to tell the story without them.

This past August, Asbury Park started allowing motorized scooters here.  Deputy Mayor Quinn led the effort.

Quinn, the darling of local Democrats, selected a company called Spin for the scooters. Spin appears to be an eco-friendly San Francisco start-up that fits well with Asbury’s woke progressives who hate oil companies and long for Congresswoman AOC’s Green New Delusion. The reality?  Spin is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ford Motor Company.  Big Industry.  Big oil.  The transportation equivalent of a Red Lobster on the Boardwalk.

Amy Quinn really, really wants her pet project to do well.  Apparently, so does the Asbury Park Press.

Arnone Report: County Had Successful Summer Season

By Tom Arnone, Monmouth County Freeholder Director

Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

It’s finally starting to feel like fall and I couldn’t be happier! From pumpkin picking to festivals and everything in between, there is always something fun to do during this season in Monmouth County.

I’ve certainly kept busy over the last few weeks at several events throughout the entire County that I would like to briefly share with you.

Despite celebrating the fall season, last week I joined my fellow Freeholders at the beach in Long Branch to host our annual End-of-Summer press conference. As liaison to the Department of Public Information and Tourism, I discussed how our businesses and towns fared through the 2019 season.
