    and crossroads, for the Monmouth GOP: there is much pressure this year, to retain two county freeholders, win back two lost assembly seats in district 11,( and retain the senate there,) and all incumbent seats, in 12 and 13… not to mention, deliver a big plurality to hometown candidate for governor, Kim Guadagno, if she has a hope of winning, and, not lose any more local majorities/ mayors.. show up and dig deep, folks- let us get beyond some personal ambitions and do what is strategically best and smartest, for the whole team and ticket, in 2017!

  2. Ciatterelli for Gov said at 6:55 pm on February 26th, 2017:

    Monmouth GOP – for the future of our state party, don’t vote Guadagno.

    We need to jumpstart our party with a message that can thrive in the future and win against the Corrine machine.

    Jack Ciatterelli is the leader we need fighting for our state Constitution and against progressive gonsmack.

    Jack Ciattarelli hadn’t set foot in Monmouth County until he started running for Governor. Kim Guadagno has been to all 21 Counties campaigning, raising money, party building…for the last 7 years. Not just when it looked good for her to do so.

    @Big Year- I didn’t know it was the County Chairman’s job to run Senator Beck’s race? Maybe you should take your comments up with Tom Kean Jr.

    every county chair’s main job, to deliver his or her county for the entire ticket!! Do they not have endorsement conventions, and give the entire party line to the slate, and run each year’s election? Do they not try and keep all the egos in line, and, on a similar platform/ philosophy of “good governing? ” Do they not have to take responsibility to GOTV in each town, to add up to victory, for as much of their entire line as possible? Do not make excuses, or stick heads in the sand: every office on that slate that wins, is a win( or loss) for that county chair- that is the nature and result of taking on that responsibility!
