Local stuff in the 12th District

Since this Blog is supposed to be about local Monmouth County politics I trolled the local Patch sites for something interesting involving local politics.  The best I could come up with is this article in the Eatontown/Tinton Falls Patch.  http://eatontown.patch.com/articles/board-of-ed-issues-a-call-to-action-to-tinton-falls-residents#comments.  Maybe tommorrow something good will pop in Marlboro.  Things are usually exciting there.

Anyway some interesting comments in this article. I see popular troll (and by that I mean smelly monster that lives under a bridge and eats goats Jim Sage jumped in.

So what do you pack of Hynaes masquerading as political pundits that Art calls an audience  think of this story?

What will George do?

By Art Gallagher

Looming large for incumbents and potential legislative candidates in the new 12th and 30th legislative districts is the question, “What will George Gilmore do?”

Gilmore is the Chairman of the powerful Ocean County Republican Organization.  He was a member of the Redistricting Commission.

The new 12th includes Plumsted,Jackson and the Pt. Pleasants in Ocean County.  Ronald Dancer of Plumsted is an incumbent Assemblyman.  Sam Thompson of Old Bridge (Middlesex) is also an incumbent Assemblyman in the new district.  There is a Senate vacancy.  Monmouth County Freeholder Director Rob Clifton and Manalapan Mayor Andrew Lucas, also of Monmouth County, have both announced their intention to seek a legislative seat in the district.

Will Gilmore put up candidates to challenge Thompson, Clifton and Lucas? 

Likewise in the new 30th, Glimore looms large.  Monmouth County’s population dominates the new 30th, but Robert Singer has represented Howell of Monmouth for years.  Singer is better known in Howell than Sean Kean is. 

Dave Rible is the only incumbent Assembly member from the new 30th.  Rible hasn’t returned a call for comment, but some of his supporters from the old 11th are worried that Dave could be vulnerable should Gilmore field two Assembly candidates in the district.

Senator Jennifer Beck, Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon and Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande will be making a presentation on Governor Christie’s Tool Kit tomorrow, Tuesday, October 26th at 8 p.m. at Greenbriar Retirement Community in Marlboro.


This is the third such presentation the 12th District Legislators have given on the Tool Kit, which consists of more than 30 initiatives to cut waste and streamline government in order to control the tax burden in New Jersey.
