Monmouth Dems Nominate Murphy For Governor

The Monmouth County Democrats endorsed former Goldman Sachs executive Phil Murphy, of Middletown, to be the Party nominee for Governor in the June 6 Democrat Primary at their secret convention in Wall Township this afternoon, according to a facebook post by Fox News Contributor Julie Roginsky.

The endorsement traditionally gives the favored candidate superior ballot positioning within the County in the Primary election.

Murphy has been considered the runaway front runner for the nomination since Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop announced he would not seek the nomination last September.  Fulop endorsed Murphy, as did several Democrat County Chairs and Party Leaders.  Senate President Steve Sweeney announced that he would not be a candidate in early October and backed Murphy.

Monmouth Dems Embrace The Rain Water Tax Champion

rain-tax-mmm-sm_We’re three weeks before Election Day and the only policy proposal that the Monmouth County Democratic candidates for County office have made is Surrogate candidate Vincent Solomeno’s pledge to blatantly break the law with regard to the access to death certificates.

Maybe that’s because they know if they reveal plans to impose a rain water tax on Monmouth County property owners, Lawless Matt Doherty and Sketchy Sue Fulton know that they would even lose in Democrat strongholds like Neptune Township and Long Branch.

Vin Gopal’s got a problem with powerful women

Boys Club: I bet you can't find a photo of Vin posing with three women

Boys Club: I bet you can’t find a photo of Vin posing with three women

The Monmouth County Democrats women problem goes beyond the fact that the party has only nominated 5 women to county or legislative offices, while nominating 26 men to higher office, since Vin Gopal became the Party Chairman in 2012.  The Monmouth GOP nominated 17 men and 14 women during the same period.

Gopal defended his abysmal record of nominating women by calling his candidates for county and legislative offices “sacrificial lambs” in The Asbury Park Press’s coverage of Democratic Surrogate candidate Vincent Solomeno’s  2007 facebook post bragging about “a swedish whore named cindy.”

“Yes, we do not run women as sacrificial lambs in races just for the sake of running women,” Gopal is quoted as saying to The Asbury Park Press.

Monmouth Dems were Sketchy on Taxes, Spending and Debt at Manalapan Debate

Sketchy Sue Fulton

Sketchy Sue Fulton

Sue Fulton, a Democrat candidate for Monmouth County Freeholder, said she would reduce property taxes by 5% last week at a candidates forum at the Four Seasons 55+ community clubhouse in Manalapan.

Fulton did not say what programs she would cut, or what fiscal gimmicks she would employ, to come up with the $15.275 million. In a television commercial that started airing today on cable, Fulton said,”Cutting taxes won’t be easy. But I learned a long time ago, the the tougher the job, the harder you work.”

Fulton and her running mate, Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty, who we already know is sketchy, criticized their opponents, Freeholder Director Tom and Arnone and Deputy Freeholder Director Serena DiMaso, for the $4.5 million dollar property tax cut they made this year. Read the rest of this entry »
