Shaun Golden, the Monmouth County Sheriff, was reelected Chairman of the Monmouth GOP on Tuesday evening during a convention of the County Committee conducted via Zoom. He was unopposed for his fourth two year term as Chairman.
Golden had harsh words for NJ Republican Chairman Doug Steinhardt during his remarks to the County Committee.
We're now in week 2 of Murphy's MVC mess. Why wasn't this chaos avoided? Why open w/ 65% of staff? We need accountability. Fulton needs to step down. Bring in experts. This is the wrong time to furlough employees. Open 7 days a week. Do something that solves the problem. Fix NJ! pic.twitter.com/NtORPzWv7E
leadership has announced they are backing Governor Phil
Murphy’s plan to borrow billions to balance New Jersey’s state budget.
The Governor and Democrats are wrong for advancing
this unprecedented scheme. There is no immediate need to borrow. The state’s Fiscal Year 2020,
which ends September 30th, is balanced and includes a $500+ million surplus. Contrary to what the Governor claims, we are not running out of cash nor are we in
danger of not being able to pay our bills. Why are we rushing to incur tremendous debt?
The Republicans, each a potential gubernatorial candidate against Prince Philip Dunton Murphy next year, have been relentless this week in their criticism of MVC’s reopening to long lines in the heat and humidity, lack of social distancing, fights, and drivers camping overnight to get their cars registered and licenses renewed or issued.
The mess at Motor Vehicle offices yesterday & today is unacceptable. What can the Gov do? To start, he can fire the head of the MVC. Dealt a poor hand, to be sure, the failure in execution yesterday was unacceptable by any measure. Accountability is required. Fix It. pic.twitter.com/vWmtZT5I7Q
Former Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli, the first Republican to declare as a candidate for Governor next year issued a scathing assessment of the Murphy Administration’s reopening of Motor Vehicle Commission facilities and called for Governor Murphy to fire Commissioner Sue Fulton.

Former Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli is apparently looking to clear his path to the 2021 Republican gubernatorial nomination by inviting his past and potential political opponents to attend his campaign kickoff.
Ciattarelli, who lost the GOP gubernatorial primary to former Lt. Gov Kim Guadagno in 2017, will ceremonially announce his candidacy at his high school alma matter in Raritan on January 21, according to a NewJerseyGlobe report. He told the Associated Press that he was running last February and has been a frequent guest at GOP events throughout New Jersey ever since.
MMM has learned that the candidate has personally invited Guadagno, as well and NJ GOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt, Monmouth County GOP Chairman, Sheriff Shaun Golden, and former U.S. Senate candidate Bob Hugin to attend the event.
