Wall Republicans: Hanlon Has the “Moxy” To Be Chair

The entirely Republican Wall Township Committee is asking their County Committee Members to support Christine G. Hanlon for Monmouth County Republican Chair.

The following letter signed by Mayor Jeff Foster, Deputy Mayor Todd Luttman, and Committee Members Clint Hoffman, George Newberry and Ann Marie Conte was sent to the Wall County Committee Members earlier this week:

As you know, Monmouth County GOP Chairman Joseph Oxley has been nominated by Governor Christie to sit on the bench of the NJ Superior Court, and therefore will not be seeking reelection as our county chairman. I am sure you join us in wishing Mr. Oxley all the best. After much consideration, we, your elected Township Committee, unanimously support Christine Giordano Hanlon to replace Oxley as County Chairman

Over the last several years, Mrs. Hanlon has been a tireless worker for Monmouth County Republicans.  An attorney and former District Attorney who prosecuted white collar crimes, she is the Republican State Committeewoman serving Monmouth County. As Oxley’s “right hand man,” she helped to regain control of the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders and ensured the reelection of Sheriff Shaun Golden and Surrogate Rosemarie Peters by wide margins. In 2009, she worked to help Monmouth County deliver one of the largest margins of victory ever to elect Governor Chris Christie and Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno.  She was also County Coordinator for the McCain-Palin campaign and is the Chair of the Ocean Township Republican Party.  In short, she’s been the force behind many successful elections and we believe she has the drive and experience to help lead the Monmouth County GOP into the future.

Hanlon has a very specific agenda to improve communication and transparency in County GOP politics, improve voter outreach through the use of technology, and build on our existing excellent grassroots network. She is a tireless worker, has a proven record of success, and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support GOP efforts here in Monmouth County.  Furthermore, she has been endorsed by several members of the Senate and Assembly who can personally attest to her passion, commitment and unprecedented integrity.

We believe Christine Hanlon has the unique mix of skill, experience, innovation and moxy to be the next Monmouth County GOP Chairman.  We hope you will join us in supporting her at the Monmouth County Republican Committee Reorganization on June 12 at Colts Neck High School.

    Christine in a landslide – not even close. She is a hard worker, a proven winner and most importantly, has no baggage like John.

    “No baggage” ???? let us be real…CH is a fairly young lawyer/mother in a new firm where the $$ seems to be ALL from political connections. Also, the “successes” of the Monmouth GOP are not attributable to one person, and I would hope Chris would acknowldge this. Joe O promoted her, and she worked hard — true but should not = County Chair . Kudos to Chis and others who have recently gotten involved etc., but others have been doing as much for years. BAGGAGE: I see this as this as “past baggage” vs “going forward baggage” What is the difference?? Chris’s Boss, and Managing Partner of her firm is an accomplished political operative….kudos to him, but, as the old saying goes “follow the money” seems “lesser of two evils” — JB made his name, $$, in the past and now can actually GIVE BACK his time and talents, and has a PLATFORM in writing vs. “endorsements” from elected officials just trying to keep the status quo !! Chris, luv ya as a volunteer—not ready for prime time and too concerned you will be “played” by the MUCH more experienced operatives that have been around and have their own agenda.

    “Landslide” like odds.

    Isn’t the use of the word “moxie” sexist?
