    Curley LOOSES again! Maybe he’ll turn back to a democrat after loosing so many battles as a republican

    While it’s unsettling (to say the least) that Side-show Bob (Walsh) managed to get approximately 199 votes, it helps to restore my faith in mankind to know there were enough level-headed Republicans to stop this vulgarian at the gate and maintain a class act like Lillian Burry.

    It’s over. No need for recriminations. Let’s get back to business. Nothing to see here.

    That said, will Walsh run again next year against Curley, or will he finally get it after what, three tries now?

    Congratulations are due to Lillian & Gary, however, there were NO LOSERS at the convention. All 3 displayed class and dignity through out the campaign. Many Republicans I know had a difficult time making a choice as all 3 candidates had many positive attributes.
    Someone I know recently mentioned that the “Competition” would make our candidates better; and better prepare the Party for November. Based on the manner that all 3 conducted themselves and Bob Walsh’s call for unity and defeating the Democrats, I think they made a good point.

    A win for the county but a loss for Howell. No doubt that he will once agin try to dupe the voters in Howell that their issues are all he cares about and try to convince them that they are lucky he lost, so they can have him all for themselves. If they fall for that they deserve him.

    I second that.

    The second Jim G, although far down the list in stature 🙁

    Bob Walsh should run in November to shake up the status quo.
    Can’t win forever playing defense…someone needs to play offense.

  8. @ Dear Mr. Brent said at 3:26 pm on March 23rd, 2014:

    My good man, are you suggesting Mr. Walsh of the Township of Howell should go back on his word at the convention to join with the Republicans this fall to win?

    Oh Lordy, just how divisive are you dear fellow?

    one more year….

  10. @ Wish said at 7:59 pm on March 24th, 2014:

    John Curley is up next year. I don’t think Bob would have challenged him.

    Unless Freeholder Curley retires, I don’t see Walsh ending up as a Freeholder next year or challenging Serena & Tom the year after.

    Bob will have a few years to wait, and I wonder if he will still be interested.

  11. Hint, hint... said at 9:34 pm on March 24th, 2014:

    read the message…

  12. @ Hinr, Hint said at 10:48 pm on March 24th, 2014:

    You are saying Walsh will challenge Curley or Curley will retire…

  13. Not quite, said at 7:29 am on March 25th, 2014:

    but you’re getting there..
