It’s become a winter tradition that Monmouth County Republicans can mark their calendars by. Shaun Golden’s annual Starry Night Celebration is on the last Friday of January followed by the Monmouth GOP’s annual Lincoln Day Dinner two weeks later.
The atmosphere was electric on Friday night in Freehold where over 500 enthusiastic Republicans gathered at Southgate Manor for the annual celebration of America’s first Republican president and the annual kickoff of signature gathering for candidates’ petitions.
New Jersey’s sole remaining Republican in Congress, Rep Chris Smith, received a spontaneous standing ovation when Golden noted his arrival from a Friday voting session in Washington. Smith in turn acknowledged the strong Monmouth Republican team that held back the blue wave that swept the rest of New Jersey in last fall’s election and specifically congratulated Golden, not for politics, but for outstanding government. The Sheriff was honored in Washington last year, Smith noted, for leading the best 911 call center in the country.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Republican Committee, Monmouth GOP, New Jersey | Tags: Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso, Barbara McMorrow, Bill Palatucci, Christine Giordano Hanlon, Congressman Chris Smith, Freeholder Gerry Scharfenberger, Freeholder Sue Kiley, Kevin Orender, Monmouth County News, Shaun Golden | Comments Off on Republican Enthusiasm Abounds At Monmouth County Lincoln Day Dinner

Dangerous 4 Law Enforcement-At what point do cities/towns arbitrarily NOT enforce other state laws? Controlling what the PDs can/cannot enforce is a dangerous course action.

Disgraced Freeholder John P. Curley survived a challenge to his nominating petitions for reelection, according to a letter from Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon dated June 13, which was obtained by MMM via OPRA request.
After noticing irregularities in the Curley petitions, Monmouth County Republican Chairman, Sheriff Shaun Golden, submitted a formal challenge to the petitions requesting that Hanlon’s staff review the signatures before certifying Curley’s candidacy for Freeholder as an Independent.
Hanlon found that over 120 signatures were invalid because the signers were not registered to vote in Monmouth County or the signature on the petition did not match the signature in the state voter records. The censured freeholder still has over 100 valid signatures, making his overall petition valid.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County News | Tags: Angelo Genova, Disgraced Freeholder John P.

Murphy claims bi-partisan support for property tax/charity scheme. Republicans disagree, call for NJ reforms
Marlboro, NJ-With Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty looking like Chris Christie standing behind Donald Trump on Super Tuesday — and four other Democrat mayors standing behind him, Governor Phil Murphy today declared he had bi-partisan support for his plan to have the state’s municipalities set up charities to accept donations in lieu of property taxes. Murphy said that the recent income tax reform passed by Congress and signed into law by President Trump is a tax increase on New Jersey’s middle class. The scheme he is proposing would, if allowed by the IRS, reverse the impact of the tax reform law’s $10,000 cap on the state and local tax (SALT) deduction.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County News, New Jersey, Phil Murphy | Tags: Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty, Chris Christie, Congressman Leonard Lance, Declan O'Scanlon, Donald Trump, Governor Phil Murphy, Income taxes, Jon Hornik, Matt Doherty, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, NJ Property Taxes, SALT deduction, Sen.
