On the local level, the GOP took control in Neptune City, Eatontown, and Atlantic Highlands, and flipped Mayoral seats to GOP in Sea Bright and Spring Lake Heights.

The job of a county party chair is to ensure that candidates have no unforced errors, usually handled in the vetting process. Democrat Chairman David Brown’s candidates this year have self-inflicted wounds. He has dumped support for several of his own candidates, a sign of his own failure. The Monmouth Democrat Party needs to strip him of his chairmanship for this collapse.
By the way – the correct pronunciation for “The Monmouth Democrat Party” is “Vin Gopal.” That’s who needs to dump Brown.
Let’s look at how David Brown treated two women very differently for their words about cops.
Jeana Sager is a Democrat candidate for the Township Council in Middletown. I’m not here to articulate her true feelings about cops because I don’t know them. I don’t know them because David Brown sewed her mouth shut like a character on “A Handmaid’s Tale” before she could explain.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2019 elections, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democrats, Opinion, Tommy DeSeno | Tags: 2019 elections, Dave Brown, Jeana Sager, Moira Nelson, Monmouth Democrats, Opinion, Thomas DeSeno, Tom DeSeno, Tommy DeSeno | 6 Comments »
It’s An Issue Of Credibility…
By Kendra Hogan and Gary Moll, Candidates for Neptune Township Committee
Since the first Candidates Forum in Neptune Township on September 23rd, one particular issue has been brought to the attention of all of the candidates for Township Committee several times; that of the possible health risks of Verizon’s 5G wireless transmitters. Kendra Hogan & Gary Moll, the Republican candidates, have favored a “go slow” approach citing a number of studies. However, this issue is one where one of their opponents, Carol Rizzo’s credibility comes into question.

Asemblywoman Joann Downey, the Chairwoman of the Human Services Committee, has buried a bill in her committee that would require psychiatric health care facilities to provide 24 hour per day monitoring of children under their supervision, according to a report on NJHerald.
The bill is being championed by a Hunterdon County mother whose 7 year old foster son was sexually abused by another patient while under the care of Newark Beth Israel’s psychiatric facility in 2015. It has been buried in Downey’s pile for 18 months.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 11th Legislative District, 2019 elections, Monmouth County | Tags: 2019 elections, A3958, Joann Downey, LD 11, Matt Woolley, Mike Amoroso, Monmouth County News, NJ Assembly | 5 Comments »
By Jonathan Hornik, Mayor of Marlboro
When I was first elected Mayor, I detailed my ‘Plan for Progress…100 Days and Beyond’. As a lifelong resident of Marlboro and business person, I stressed the need for investment in public safety and infrastructure including roads and open space preservation while getting our fiscal house in order. Especially in light of the great recession and the severe storms which we weathered as a community, I am pleased that we have been able to accomplish as much as we have, and my focus for the next four years will be on these same critical areas.admin | Filed under: Jon Hornik, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: 2019 elections, Marlboro Mayor Jon Hornik, Marlboro Township, Monmouth County News, OpEd | Comments Off on Promise and Accomplishment: Hornik looks back on three terms and plans his fourth
Monmouth County Democrat Chairman Dave Brown really ought to do a better job of vetting his candidates.
NewJerseyGlobe reports that Brown has renounced his local candidates in Eatontown because of their illegal fundraising activities and because one of the candidates switched Parties to run.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2019 elections, Monmouth County | Tags: 2019 elections, Dave Brown, Eatontown Democrats, Jeana Sager, Moira Nelson, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democrats, NewJerseyGlobe | 5 Comments »
Senator Vin Gopal has been silent about the radical anti-cop, pro-narcotics views expressed by Jeana Sager and Moira Nelson, Democrat candidates for Middletown Township Committee and Monmouth County freeholder.
We gave the senator a pass for his silence when his successor as Monmouth Democrat Chairman, David Brown, condemned Sager’s declaration that cops are criminals. Gopal was on his honeymoon, a trade mission to India with the Murphys, when that story broke. But the honeymoon is over now that Nelson has been exposed and Brown has remained silent.
In withdrawing Democrat support of Sager, Brown said, Read the rest of this entry »Posted: October 6th, 2019 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County | Tags: 2019 elections, David Brown, Jeana Sager, Moira Nelson, Monmouth County Democrats, Monmouth County News, Senator Vin Gopal | 11 Comments »
