Speaking of the holiday season, I want to remind everyone to shop and dine local. As part of the County’s continuing effort to help small businesses, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have developed a new Made in Monmouth interactive directory just in time for the holiday season.

By Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

I’d like to start by thanking all of the veterans who have served our country. We should continue to recognize their sacrifices throughout the entire year. It is because of their sacrifices we continue to enjoy our freedoms. Let us also not forget the sacrifices made by their families!

Arnone Report: Business, Arts and Baseball

By Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

While I could say the last few weeks have been very busy, the truth of the matter is that the County stays busy around the year with ongoing projects and initiatives.

Earlier this month, I had the honor of joining Middletown Mayor Tony Perry and the Middletown Committee, as well as, Congressman Chris Smith at a press conference hosted by Middletown to launch their Economic Relief Program to assist their small businesses impacted by COVID-19.

Arnone Report, Sept 22, 2020

Middletown Mayor Tony Perry, Committeewoman Pat Snell and Freeholder Director Tom Arnone promoting Open Space in Middletown

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.

Arnone Report: School’s Open, So Are the Beaches and Local Businesses

Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

By Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Labor Day Weekend! A new school year is officially upon us and though it may look different than past school years, we still must be extra cautious when driving around our communities!

It’s always important – and especially now that children are back in school – that everyone obeys speed limits, stops for pedestrians and avoids distractions when driving. It’s also important that pedestrians and children walking to school use crosswalks or cross at intersections and wait for the walk signal before stepping into the road.
