Devon Harley, 30, of Neptune City faces two federal charges of possession an Glock 26 9mm which had been altered to shoot automatically while being a convicted felon, according to an announcement by U.S. Attorney

The rules, policies, and procedures of good-governance have almost all been thrown to the wayside in Neptune City under the current majority. An alarming trend which started January 1st as policies have been created without cooperation, special committees formed without proper resolutions, the intentionally keeping of information from other elected officials, and threatening of borough employees.
This is just a fraction of what has been occurring these past months in Neptune City and calls to rectify the issues have fallen on deaf ears, no matter how hard I have tried. Yet, what transpired at the September 9th Workshop and Council meetings was the final straw and residents have a right to not only know, but be concerned.admin | Filed under: Monmouth County News, Neptune City, Opinion | Tags: 2019 elections, Andrew Wardell, Eminent Domain, Monmouth County News, Neptune City, Opinion, Pamela Renee, redevelopment | 2 Comments »
Pryor Wins Neptune City Special Election, Monmouth GOP prevails over bus loads of Democratic canvassers
The streets of Neptune City were reminiscent of Newark, Jersey City or Chicago on election day Tuesday as out of town canvassers worked the town to get Democrats to come out and vote in a Special Election for a Council seat that was vacated as a result of a tie vote last November.
The State Democratic Party emailed Democrat activists statewide, imploring them to knock on doors and make phone calls in Neptune City, “because it is the home of Monmouth County Freeholder Director and Republican Leader Tom Arnone, who previously served as mayor.” U.S. Senator Cory Booker made a robocall for the Democrat candidate. An estimated 30 out of towners were bused in on Tuesday to to find Democratic votes to drag to the polls.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democrats, Monmouth GOP, Neptune City, Tom Kean JR | Tags: Freeholder Director Tom Arnone, Michael Skudera, Monmouth County News, Monmouth GOP, Neptune City, Neptune City GOP, Neptune City Special Election, Richard Pryor, Rick Pryor | 4 Comments »
Election result rests with first time voter
Neptune City Councilman Richard Pryor has lodged a contest of the November 3 general election in Monmouth County Superior Court.
Pryor, a Republican, was leading his race for reelection by one vote following the counting of provisional ballots on November 9. In the November 24 recount, Democrat Michael Skudera picked up three votes while Pryor picked up one. Skudera now leads Pryor by one vote, 602-601.
