Vin Gopal, the Monmouth County Democrat Chairman until noon on Tuesday and a candidate for the Democrat nomination for State Senate in the 11th Legislative District, portrayed himself as a struggling small business owner who goes months at a time without a paycheck so that he can pay his employees, in the announcement that he was stepping down as Chairman to run for Senate.
“I know what it’s like having to make payroll every month, going months without taking a paycheck in order to make sure my employees are paid,” Gopal said to The Asbury Park Press. At Observer-PolitickerNJ, Gopal said, “I know what Monmouth County residents are going through.”
But MoreMonmouthMusings has learned that Gopal paid $900,000 in cash for a commercial property in Tinton Falls last week. He showed up for the closing with a bank check for $10,000 more than the listing price after winning a bidding war on 97 Apple Street, a single story office building.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County News, Vin Gopal | Tags: 2017 Legislative election, 97 Apple Street Tinton Falls, Eric Brophy, Jennifer Beck, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Dems, Tic Tac Toe Development, Tic Tac Toe Development LLC, Vin Gopal | 6 Comments »
