    Congrats to both Gerry and Stephanie.

    Middletown taxpayers can be proud of every one of the elected Township Committee members. They bring a great deal of enthusiasm and knowledge to the table; a willingness for hard work, making tough decisions and having common sense.

    Congrats also especially to Mayor Fiore, whose service as Mayor has been exemplary. When faced with a crisis like Hurricane Sandy, Tony and the rest of the township committee stood tall and led from the front lines. Their efforts will not be forgotten by the people.

    NJ under Gov Buffoon is near the bottom in EVERYTHING, however Middletown proves that Conservative governance works. Too bad Gov Buffoon is a big Gubmint LIB.
