Monmouth County Freeholder John Curley has hired Angelo Genova, Co-founding partner and Chairman of the powerful law firm GenovaBurns, to represent him in an unspecified matter that Curley apparently wants to keep from becoming public.
Genova sent MMM publisher Art Gallagher the following email at 8:21 p.m. on November 9, 2017:

MMM does not know what information Genova is referring to. We hear rumors about public figures frequently that we would never consider publishing without documentation or reliable corroboration.
