FOP Lodge 30-Monmouth Superior Officers Endorse Kiley and Scharfenberger for Freeholder

Sue Kiley and Gerry Scharfenberger

Freehold, NJ- The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #30, Monmouth County Superior Officers’ Association is proud to announce the endorsement of Sue Kiley and Gerry Scharfenberger for Monmouth County Freeholder in the November 6, 2018 election.

“Public Safety is one of the most important functions of county government,” Lodge President Shawn Reece said.  “Throughout their careers in public service, both Kiley and Scharfenberger have demonstrated their appreciation and support for the men and women who have dedicated themselves to the safety of others.”

Sue and Gerry stand head and shoulders over their opponents in their level of experience and, most importantly, with the dignity and respect with which they treat residents and employees.

Hazlet Deputy Mayor Kiley comes from a law enforcement family.  As a former Emergency Room Registered Nurse, she knows first-hand the life and death pressure that first responders face every day.

During her tenure in Hazlet, Kiley’s leadership has made a lives saving difference. Thanks to her listening and cooperation with the Township’s First Aid Squad and her subsequent advocacy with State officials, the New Jersey Department of Heath changed their rules regulating the use of Narcan by EMTs.  Due to Kiley’s efforts, First Aid Squads throughout New Jersey are now allowed to carry full doses of Narcan to treat overdose victims, whereas prior to her advocacy, EMTS where only allowed to use half doses.

Throughout his 14 years as member of the Middletown Township Committee and his one year as a Monmouth County Freeholder, Gerry Scharfenberger has demonstrated his commitment to excellence, innovation, and producing outstanding results for both taxpayers and government employees.

Under Scharfenberger’s leadership, Middletown has been consistently been named among the best places to live in the United States and the safest cities in New Jersey.  He is a leader in drug and alcohol addiction prevention and an effective innovator in creating public-private partnerships and faith based initiatives to impact public health and well-being.

“The Monmouth County Superior Officers proudly stand with Deputy Mayor Sue Kiley and Freeholder Gerry Scharfenberger and we ask Monmouth County residents to join our members in supporting them on November 6,” Reece said.

“Gerry and I are honored and humbled to have the support of the brave men and women of FOP Lodge #30,” Deputy Mayor Kiley said. “There is a lot that is great about Monmouth County.  The men and women of law enforcement put themselves on the line every day to keep our county great and safe.”

Freeholder Scharferberger said,”We’re honored to have the support of the men and women of FOP #30.  Throughout my years in public service, working with law enforcement officers has always been a privilege.  Sue and I look forward to continuing our work  on the County level and treating law enforcement officer, and all employees, with the dignity and respect they deserve.”

    Supporting the ticket that really supports law enforcement. This will teach the party of Sharpton, Murphy and DiBlasio that their hatred of cops is not going unnoticed

  2. What do DiBlasio and Sharpton said at 6:05 pm on October 16th, 2018:

    have to do with law enforcement in NJ?

  3. Good.Move said at 7:59 pm on October 16th, 2018:

    Nothing – just two good examples of Democrat cop haters. Get it?

  4. No said at 8:50 pm on October 16th, 2018:

    explain further.

  5. Good Move said at 9:10 pm on October 16th, 2018:

    Sure. You see, Democrats despise cops. When some low-life thug gets killed by a cop during a shootout Democrats riot in the streets. When a cop is killed you hear crickets. I looked around for the most blatant cop haters who are Democrats and listed them. How is that for an explanation?

  6. You said at 11:06 pm on October 16th, 2018:

    Reaaaaaaaalllllly wanted to use another word instead of Democrats didn’t you? It’s ok you likely would not get censored here. Anyway, since you’re a huge supporter of law enforcement I’m sure you loudly protested when Christie screwed them over on various occasions over the past 8 years, right? Tell me I’m correct you self-righteous dolt.

  7. @ You said at 2:26 pm on October 17th, 2018:

    Talk about words that should be censored, insults like the word “dolt” get you zero credibility. But, if like a little child you are looking for attention, hey, you have a right to say anything you want. However, it invites people to laugh at you. Rousseau had a quote for people like you > “Insults are the arguments employed by those who are in the wrong.”

  8. Good Move said at 3:12 pm on October 17th, 2018:

    @ you – You are confusing disagreements over contracts with despicable actions by democrats when they take the side of the criminal over the cops in so many occasions. It was Democrats who marched through the streets chanting” what do we want Dead Cops when do we want them now” it was a Democrat president who said that the police acted stupidly after an altercation with a Harvard professor without knowing all the facts. It is Democrats who support the idiotic disrespectful Act of kneeling during the national anthem and it’s Democrats who support cop haters like Colin Kaepernick who once wore socks depicting police as pigs. Ever wonder why the police turn their backs on Bill de Blasio ? I know the truth hurts, but the Democrats have a long history of not hiding their hatred for police. Sad but true

  9. Again said at 3:21 pm on October 17th, 2018:

    you are completely fixated on NYC politicians and actions that occur up there. Since I know you’re not in law enforcement, do me a favor and ask anyone that works in that profession if they voted for or approved of Christie post first term. I will wait.

  10. @Again said at 5:13 pm on October 17th, 2018:

    I’ve been watching this ping pong match and I’ve concluded two things. One is that there is two different issues being discussed. 1 person has a personal beef with Chris Christie probably over something he didn’t like in his contract which by the way was probably good for the taxpayers. The other is a general statement on Democrats and their attitude towards law enforcement. It’s hard to argue that Democrats always seem to back the criminal first. There are dozens of examples from across the country. Just my two cents

  11. John Kaye said at 8:35 am on October 18th, 2018:

    These are two outstanding candidates.
    This endorsement & the others are well
    thought out & well deserved.

  12. @John Kaye said at 5:57 pm on October 18th, 2018:

    Exactly right. Maybe the strongest Freeholder ticket I can remember in years
