“Our Board prides itself on making well informed decisions on behalf of our residents and wants further information before acting on this matter,” said Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone. “It is also important to note that my fellow Freeholders and I are not categorizing the documented, lawful group of citizens with illegal immigrants.”Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: Freeholder Director Tom Arnone, Governor Phil Murphy, Monmouth County Board of Freeholders, Monmouth County News, Sanctuary State, Tom Arnone | 9 Comments »

Happy summer! I hope everyone has been enjoying the warmer weather and all the County has to offer! There are so many events and activities throughout the County that there is sure to be something for everyone.
With that being said, as the liaison to the County’s Department of Public Information and Tourism, I held a press conference in Keyport, along with my fellow Freeholders, to celebrate the start of summer in the Bayshore and to showcase all that they have to offer visitors this summer! I am proud to say that Tourism is nearly a $2.6 billion industry in Monmouth County and it was no surprise to hear that the county saw an increase in visitors last year!

The first topic this week I would like to provide an update is our efforts at the Monmouth County Reclamation Center. It continues to be our mission to eliminate the odors emitted at the site.
As you may know, the County purchased an odor neutralizer that continues to be applied directly to the most critical areas, as well as other areas as needed. We will continue these efforts until the odor is under control. This remains a top priority for us at the County and we look forward to continuing an open dialogue with those impacted by this situation.admin | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, News, Tom Arnone | Tags: Arnone Report, Freeholder Director Tom Arnone, Monmouth County News, Tom Arnone | Comments Off on Arnone Report: Freeholder Director’s update on efforts for odor mitigation and more

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!
