    I can see the Facebook post now “I’m so blessed, I’m so lucky, I’m so special, blah, blah, blah….”

    You need to make comments like that?

    That tells a lot about your own self esteem that you gotta get nasty over someone’s accomplishments.

    Hi Serena,

    It is beneath you or your people to make comments to the contrary.

  4. Marlboro Male said at 7:52 am on November 19th, 2018:

    Nasty? Not at all. Factual? Yes.

  5. @ @@Marlbo Male said at 11:08 am on November 19th, 2018:

    I am NOT Serena’s “people” nor have they invited me to make a comment about yours.

    But you go ahead and assume things and make an arse out of yourself.

    I’m just tired of people throwing out every little bit of hate and smarmyness they can over somebody achieving something.

    I can only wonder, what high positions have you achieved? Or, is this your ego trying to make yourself look bigger. Instead, it makes you look small. VERY small.

    Get over yourself.

  6. It is what said at 2:37 pm on November 19th, 2018:

    she has been working toward, for several years..Glad it went to a Republican.. Years ago, NJ had an association for elected women officials, of both parties, at all levels…it probably lasted for some 15 years, then disbanded, as less women were getting elected and those in it stopped making time for meetings and functions.. There is now a women’s group associated with the state League.. If there is any hope for some decent dialog and bi-partisanship at all, in times like these, perhaps groups such as this could be helpful..

  7. Shameful Serena said at 3:31 pm on November 19th, 2018:

    Ethics charges??? Playing in Nashville on the taxpayers dime when your supposed to be Trenton???
    She has alot of explaining to do to get my vote again.

  8. Remember other women said at 5:03 pm on November 19th, 2018:

    I just hope Serena DiMaso will remember other women and fight for their rights, and all American’s rights.


  9. What’s the schedule? said at 5:55 pm on November 19th, 2018:

    Weren’t they on hiatus for election season? I know she does work on a lot of legislation. Problem is, we are so in the minority, we’ll never get anything meaningful done!

  10. @ Shameful said at 6:43 pm on November 19th, 2018:

    Was the Assembly in session?

    If not, nothing wrong

    Even if so, one person ain’t going to change the paradigm.

    Stop being jealous of others success to the point you have to become irrationally angry.

    And ethics charges? Really? How desperate.

    It’s the season of joy. Start being joyful instead of selfish.

    what kind of leader she is. Her meddling has turned us into a dysfunctional family mess. We couldn’t wait to get rid of her but she keeps coming back

  12. @shameful said at 5:01 pm on November 20th, 2018:

    So you think it’s ok to attend a party in Nashville, Tennessee when your getting paid by the taxpayers to be in Trenton that very same day??

    Your ethics are the same as DiMaso’s….non-existent!

  13. @ @Shameful said at 6:36 pm on November 20th, 2018:

    Was the Assembly in session and if so, was there a vote?

    If there was no vote scheduled, nothing would have changed. I wonder how many other absent legislators you have complained about.

    Your hate is showing. Stop being an angry person.

  14. Shameful Serena said at 6:56 pm on November 20th, 2018:

    Yes, the Assembly was in session the day she decided to party in Nashville!

    A bill that was voted on was banning children from marrying older men.

    Obviously Serena didn’t care. She had to party while getting paid her legilative salary.

    STOP defending the ethically and morally challenged “represenative!”

  15. @ Shamful - I'm wondering said at 8:58 pm on November 20th, 2018:

    Did the bill pass and if it did, would her no vote have changed the outcome?

    That said, partying in Nashville might have been a stretch and who knows how long ago this was scheduled and what was going to be on the agenda.

    If her vote would have meant nothing, I would give her a pass.

  16. She has said at 10:13 pm on November 20th, 2018:

    done a bunch over the years. If she wanted to cut loose and party a little bit in the Music City while getting paid, more power to her.

  17. @she has said at 6:48 am on November 21st, 2018:

    You’re right. Posing for pictures is such hard work.

  19. Lighten up said at 5:06 pm on November 21st, 2018:

    It’s just funny that she loves the spotlight and has made a career of gossiping and trashing everyone around her.

  20. Shameful Serena said at 5:32 pm on November 21st, 2018:

    OMG! You support elected officials that are corrupt!! Did you read the PATCH story???? She just got elected to the Assembly and she already is a no-show.

    Whether or not her votes count, she has a duty and obligation to be present at the place of work we elected her to be.

  21. Bottom line said at 8:24 pm on November 21st, 2018:

    She’s a Republican, it is all good.

  22. @ shameful Serena said at 9:49 pm on November 21st, 2018:

    First, she’s been in office for nearly a year, NOT just elected. Secondly, if you are that upset, put your money where your mouth is and challenge her.

    Bet you won’t though.

  23. What said at 8:06 pm on November 22nd, 2018:

    is the big deal?

  24. @what said at 9:28 am on November 23rd, 2018:

    She has made a lot of enemies over the years with her behavior, that’s the big deal

  25. The Party said at 11:39 am on November 23rd, 2018:

    backs her. Really all that matters, move on.

  26. Ask Holmdel said at 12:49 pm on November 23rd, 2018:

    How much they think of her here. They couldn’t wait to get rid of her

  27. Lol said at 1:11 pm on November 23rd, 2018:

    I’m sure she is singing the blues about advancing in the world. What else ya got?

  28. Proving the point said at 7:37 pm on November 23rd, 2018:

    Its always about Serena advancing, never about what she does for the voters. Her wanting the spotlight is all she cares about..That’s why no one can stand her.

    Ask anyone in Holmdel

    she keeps getting elected and moving on to bigger and better shit. Soooo who really cares?

    Still going on?

    Go enjoy your families on this holiday weekend instead of hating and hating.

  32. Shameful Serena said at 3:54 pm on November 24th, 2018:

    Wow, this is getting crazy. Serena, despite her best intentions has failed her constituents.

    Getting paid and not showing up for work after 5 months in office—-really?? To party no less?


  33. Did she said at 8:17 pm on November 24th, 2018:

    laugh at your small dick? I don’t get the outrage over someone like this lol.

  34. The problem is said at 8:52 pm on November 24th, 2018:

    Serena causes more in fighting among her own party than all the democrats put together. She is poison. Just ask Holmdel

  35. Sure Wish said at 12:27 pm on November 26th, 2018:

    Those attacking Serena would put a name to their hateful comments. After all, doesn’t someone have the right to face their accuser?

    But of course, they won’t. I wonder if this is just one or two people

  36. Marlboro Male said at 5:27 pm on November 26th, 2018:

    @ sure wish, are you kidding? Everyone knows how destructive she is. The only way she has to get ahead is to talk garbage about everyone else to make her look better.

    The only people she treats okay are the ones she thinks she can use for her own gain
