Custom made signs urging voters to support Donald Trump for President were vandalized and then stolen last week from the Yorktowne Center shopping plaza in Manalapan, according to Michael Dalton, the owner of the plaza.
Dalton said he installed two signs, one 4×6 and one 4×8 on his property encouraging visitors and drivers passing the plaza to forgive the GOP presidential nominee for his vulgar language and to disregard media reports that denigrate the candidate and suggest that he is losing the election.
“Don’t believe the media they are BAD,” the signs declared.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2016 Presidential Politics, Manalapan, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News | Tags: 2016 Presidential politics, BAD media, Forgive Trump, Manalapan, Michael Diamond, Monmouth County News, Yorktowne Center | 20 Comments »
Deputy Freeolder Director Serena DiMaso was challenged by her Democrat opponent, Sue Fulton, to declare her differences with the Republican National Platform at a candidates forum on Thursday night at the Four Seasons 55+ community in Manalapan.
Both DiMaso and Fulton were both aware that Democrat operatives were seated in the audience recording the exchange for use in the barrage of TV commercials that will attack DiMaso starting next week and extending through election day.
Rather than get into a same sex marriage or abortion debate by answering the GOP platform question, DiMaso deftly pivoted and addressed the presidential candidates.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2016 Elections, Manalapan, Monmouth County, Monmouth County Board of Freeholders, Serena DiMaso | Tags: 2016 Elections, Deputy Freeholder Director Serena DiMaso, Four Seasons Manalapan, Manalapan, Monmouth County News, Serena DiMaso, Sue Fulton | 16 Comments »

FREEHOLD, N.J. – Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04) today issued a statement regarding Jersey Central Power & Light Company (JCP&L) and Mid-Atlantic Interstate Transmission, LLC (MAIT) withdrawing their petition to the Board of Public Utilities for the transfer of some of JCP&L’s transmission assets to MAIT.
“I am encouraged that Jersey Central Power & Light Company (JCP&L) has withdrawn its petition to the Board of Public Utilities for the transfer of some of JCP&L’s transmission assets to a new sister company,” Smith said. “Had it been approved, I believe it would have made it easier for JCP&L to build the Monmouth County Reliability Project, which I believe is ill-conceived and not in the best interest of the residents. There is still more to be done to protect the citizens of Monmouth County from the potential negative effects of these proposed high voltage transmission lines, and I will continue to work with the residents and grassroots efforts to complete this task. I have a meeting with NJ Transit next week to do just that, and will continue working with other officials in this regard.”Art Gallagher | Filed under: Manalapan, Monmouth County News | Tags: Congressman Chris Smith, JCP&L, JCP&L spinoff, MAIT, Mid-Atlantic Interstate Transmission, Monmouth County News, RAGE | Comments Off on Congressman Smith Statement on JCP&L Withdraw of Petition
