Arnone Report, May 4, 2020: Parks, Beaches, Safety and $108M federal money

Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

By Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

I hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend at one of our County parks or golf courses while continuing to practice strict social distancing!

I am glad that the authority over the decision of whether or not the Monmouth County parks are open was put back in the hands of the Freeholders. My fellow Freeholders and I have always felt, throughout this pandemic, that our parks are essential for the mental health and wellbeing of our residents. We vowed to open them as soon as we were able to, and that is exactly what we are doing.

Burry undecided about seeking a 6th term on the Monmouth Freeholder Board

Freeholder Lillian Burry celebrating Veteran’s Day last month at the Monmouth County Library Eastern Branch in Shrewsbury

Monmouth County Freeholder Lillian G. Burry has not decided whether or not she will seek a 6th term on the County’s governing body.

First elected in the wake of U.S. Attorney Chris Christie’s Operation Bid Rig II in 2005, Burry has been a leader in the transformation of Monmouth County government and the Monmouth GOP from a corrupt swamp to a beacon of good government. In 2005 , the Asbury Park Press had an ongoing investigative series, Club Monmouth, into the wasteful patronage of Monmouth County government.  This year, the APP editorial board said, “It isn’t easy finding major weaknesses in the way the county has been run in recent years. Spending has been kept in check and the county has maintained a triple-A bond rating. It takes shared services between towns seriously and it has made concerted efforts to improve the climate for small businesses.  The county also has one of the finest park systems in the state.” Lillian Burry has been a huge contributor to the reforms which warranted those accolades from a critical source.

Burry said that she was personally threatened by Freeholder Curley during a closed meeting in 2013.  “With pointed fingers he said, ‘I will get you,’ I mean it was really unnerving and everybody sitting there could feel that way.”
