“Senator Gopal is an ambitious young man with misplaced priorities,” Senator Singer said. “Gopal’s district has the highest level of gun violence of all of Monmouth County and the smelliest dump in all of New Jersey. The young senator should focus on his own district’s serious problems instead of lying to my constituents with text messages in support of his puppet, Mayor Theresa Berger.
The reelection campaign of Howell Mayor Theresa Berger was kicked off last week with a fake newspaper filled with fake news and paid for and mailed to Howell voters by a Fake Democrat political action committee.
The Howell Tribune, a political hit piece filled with false and misleading content, claims that Berger blocked a proposed dump in the township and that Republican council members are behind the increase in residential development.Read the rest of this entry » Posted: September 27th, 2020 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: Howell, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News | Tags: Ed Wolff, Edwin J Wolff, Lawrence Hesse, Mayor Nothing Berger, Mayor Theresa Berger, Mayor Theresa Nothing Berger, Monmouth Coiunty News, Monmouth County Democrats, Ocean County Democrats, Ocean County Landfill, Pt Pleasant Democrats | 4 Comments »

I would like to take the time to reflect upon and recognize the 19th anniversary of the horrific terrorist attacks our nation endured on September 11th, 2001. Though the years have passed, we will never forget the lives and legacies of those who lost their lives or the first responders who bravely did their jobs.
It is our duty to always remember the horrific events that took place on that day, as well as, to never forget those we lost and how that day changed our lives forever. However, in order to never forget, our youth must be taught about 9/11 and the events that transpired that day and how it changed the course of American history forever.Read the rest of this entry » Posted: September 22nd, 2020 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, Tom Arnone | Tags: Arnone Report, Monmouth County News | Comments Off on Arnone Report, Sept 22, 2020
