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.

Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden is urging all residents and visitors to enjoy their 4th of July holiday celebrations while staying safe from the dangers of illegal fireworks.
“The result of fireworks being handled in the wrong way can cause serious injuries,” said Sheriff Golden. “It’s important to know that the danger is not only limited to general Fourth of July fireworks. Even sparklers should be kept away from children, as they can easily cause harm.”
Fireworks are dangerous, illegal and should only be handled by the professionals, Golden said. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, 230 people on average are treated for fireworks related injuries on a daily basis during the month around the July 4th holiday.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Sheriff's Office, Shaun Golden | Tags: 4th of July, Fireworks, Independence Day, July 4th, Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden, Shaun Golden | Comments Off on Sheriff Golden Warns Of Dangers of Fireworks

Many pundits are explaining away Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno’s victory in the NJ GOP gubernatorial primary to the power of “the line” — the party organization’s column on the ballot, particularly in Monmouth and Ocean Counties where Guadagno earned 20,106 of her 37,712 vote margin of victory.
InsiderNJ pointed out this morning that Guadagno had the line in counties accounting for 46.4% of the average GOP vote share. She won 46.8% of the vote. Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli had the line in counties with 31.2% of the vote. He earned 31.1% of the vote.
The implication is that a candidate is endorsed by a county political party is a shoe-in. Primary voters will magically show up on election day and vote down the line.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2017 Elections, 2017 NJ Gubernatorial Politics, Monmouth County News, Monmouth GOP, Shaun Golden | Tags: 2017 GOP primary, Bill Layton, George Gilmore, Jack Ciattarelli, Jeff Hein, Kim Guadagno, Monmouth County News, Monmouth GOP, New Jersey, Rob Clifton, Ron Dancer, Sam Thompson, Shaun Golden, Theresa Velardi | Comments Off on Golden’s Touch: The magic power of “the line” is a myth
