The Arnone Report: Freeholder Director Tom Arnone’s Update on Monmouth County Government

By Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

Millie Gonzalez of Union Beach, Ms Wheelchair NJ, is honored by the Monmouth County Freeholders

I hope everyone is staying warm, happy and healthy this winter season. It sure has been cold the last few days but on the bright side, summer is only a little more than 100 days away!

It has been an eventful few weeks at the County. During our last Freeholder meeting, the Freeholders honored the new Ms. Wheelchair New Jersey, Millie Gonzalez from Union Beach. Millie’s accomplishments are incredible and she is a true inspiration to us all for overcoming so many obstacles and achieving her goals. The Board looks forward to continuing our support for her in Little Rock, Arkansas where she will compete in the Ms. Wheelchair America 2020 competition this July! Read the rest of this entry »

Al Gore Coming To Monmouth County

Former Vice President Al Gore is coming to Monmouth County to support Democrat candidates up and down the ballot, according to an announcement of the Monmouth Dems’ website.

Gore is scheduled to appear at the Ocean Township Community Gym on Sunday, October 15 from 3 P.M till 5 P.M.

When last we heard of the inventor of the Internet and Global Warming campaigning in Monmouth County, he was embroiled in the “Crazed Sex Poodle” scandal.  Six years before NBC leaked the Access Hollywood tapes featuring Donald Trump and Billy Bush joking about grabbing pussies, Portland Oregon massage therapist Molly Hagerty accused Gore of  groping her and painfully squeezing her nipples over her clothes after she declined to rub his adductor magnus.

How Lakewood became a worldwide destination for Orthodox Jews | Di Ionno

It is Friday in Lakewood. A few thousand young men in black suits and wide-brimmed black hats are rushing toward Beth Medrash Govoha (BMG), the world’s largest yeshiva outside of Israel. Parking in the vicinity of the school is as impossible as finding a spot in Hoboken or Jersey City. Students circle in their Toyotas, Nissans… Read the rest of this entry »

AG Lynch closes Clinton email investigation; Sonnek-Schmelz blasts special rules for powerful insiders

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced this afternoon that she is closing the Hillary Clinton email investigation based upon the recommendation of FBI Director James Comey. “Late this afternoon, I met with FBI Director James Comey and career prosecutors and agents who conducted the investigation of Secretary Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email system during her time as Secretary of State,” Lynch said in a statement released on the Justice Department website.  “I received and accepted their unanimous recommendation that the thorough, year-long investigation be closed and that no charges be brought against any individuals within the scope of the investigation.”

Brent Sonnek-Schmelz, the business man running for Congress against 28 year incumbent Frank Pallone in the Monmouth/Middlesex 6th District, said that Clinton’s free pass is more than enough reason to clear out partisan political puppets, like Pallone, from both political parties.

Brent Sonnek-Schmelz, the Republican candidate challenging Congressman Frank Pallone in New Jersey’s 6th District, called the 28 year incumbent’s behavior on the floor of the House of Representatives “disgraceful.”

“Frank Pallone’s behavior of the floor of the House of Representatives on Wednesday was disgraceful,” said Sonnek-Schmelz. “After bragging about being in Congress for 28 years, Pallone said that the theatrics he and his colleagues conducted before an empty chamber was his proudest moment of those 28 years.”

“Frank’s right,” the challenger continued, “he does not have much to be proud about after 28 years.”
