Ryan Green Is Running For Freeholder

Manalapan Deputy Mayor Ryan Green told MMM that he is a candidate to fill Assemblyman-elect Rob Clifton’s Freeholder seat when the Monmouth County Republican Committee holds its election on January 14th.

“I’m throwing my hat into the ring and we’ll see what happens,” said Green, “I think I have a lot I can contribute on the county level.”   He said he was running on his record as an elected official in Manalapan since 2005, on both the school board and the township committee.  ” We haven’t raised taxes in Manalapan over the last two years, a fact that I am very proud of.”

Green said his Freeholder candidacy won’t impact the incoming Manalapan Township Committee’s plan to elect him Mayor in January.  “I’m not counting my chickens before they’re hatched.  Manalapan’s reorganization is before the Title 19 convention.  I have a great deal of respect for all of my opponents in the Freeholder race.”

Title 19 is the New Jersey statute that governs elections. It requires that vacancies for Freeholder be filled via a county committee election.

Green was encouraged by the positive feedback he received at a recent meeting of the Western Monmouth Republican Chairmen.  However, the only chairman’s endorsement he is counting on is that of Manalapan’s Steve McEnry.

    Anyway I am not suprised. McEnry is always trying to get someone from Manalastan in higher office. His success is inversly proportionate to that of his Arch nemisis Jim “The Shadow” Giannel.
    This guy stands Zero chance although he could have an impact in that he will take votes that probably would have went to Walsh.

    Lets hope Green takes as many votes from Bobby as possible. On another topic a video clip from a Howell council meeting was posted. You HAVE to see this. It is vintage “I’ll never leave Howell” Bobby. His handling of himself is a travesty and would be an insult to Freehold and the Hall of Records. He can barely stitch two sentences together. And he brings with him a rein of buffoonery that we just are better without. You gotta see this clip. Start at about minute 4 and get some popcorn. Any concerned Republican will be sick over thinking Bobby got this far. By the way, he’s only been a “R” for a short period. Can you say Cantor? We warned you. Watch this:

    Whoever gets picked, can you do me a favor? Wake someone up at the County Hall of Records, and get them to post the Freeholder minutes, for the last 6 sessions!

    Last posting was 9/22/2011 – anyone home??????????

    And can you put them in standard PDF format? They have them in aspx format? What the ….. aspx????

    The county is spending a half a billion dollars a year, and they can’t publish the minutes for over two months! In a readable format.

    maybe we can spare some people from the County Mosquito commission to help

    Try reaching out to William Hein. He is the Public Information Officer for Monmouth County. He is the one that certainly should be loading the minutes onto the Monmouth County web site (in PDF format).

    I will make a formal request to the Freeholders that ALL minutes be posted in PDF format. The current system is unacceptable.

    I will also request that Freeholders approve the minutes in a more timely fashion. Right now we have 9/22/11 to look at, if you can pull them up!

    I hope the Freeholders, have time enough, from the regular jobs, to make Monmouth County government more efficient.

    Hopefully the person picked doesn’t “make risky” decisions and has the fortitude to make positive changes.
