Tommy’s show is always good for laughs and provocative conversation about local, state and national news. Likely topics today are the New Jersey Gubernatorial primaries, President Trump, the proposed legislation to legalize marijuana in New Jersey, education funding in New Jersey or something completely different…we never know what is going to come up.
Marlboro Mayor Jon Hornik usually calls in when Art is on with Tommy, but he probably won’t today because he’s six months late in paying off bet and buying the Jersey G’s dinner at Cuzin’s Seafood Clam Bar. Someone else might call in and surprise us.Posted: May 17th, 2017 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: Art Gallagher, Monmouth County News | Tags: 1450 AM, Art Gallagher, Monmouth County News, Tommy G, Tommy G Show, WCTC AM radio, WTC 1450 AM Talk Radio | Comments Off on Art G Joins Tommy G on the radio this afternoon

On a website promoting his novels, the Senior Regional Content Strategist for The Asbury Park Press says “he gives thanks everyday to New Jersey’s long-line of corrupt officials.” On another website, the content strategist (Gannett’s 21st century term for “editor”) claims “he has exposed political corruption, insider deals, deadly medical mistakes, bureaucratic bumbling, and wasteful government spending.”
That’s important work.
But lately there must be a shortage of corruption. The Asbury Park Press has taken to publicizing the personal financial problems of municipal officials instead. There has been no evidence reported that those local officials did anything criminal or corrupt while experiencing those financial problems or as a result of them. In the two recent stories of elected officials’ personal finances, the problems have been going on for years and agreements have been made with the creditors for the successful resolution of the personal issues.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Art Gallagher, Asbury Park Press, Monmouth County News | Tags: Art Gallagher, Asbury Park Press, Monmouth County News, Opinion | 5 Comments »

Monmouth County’s Democrat leadership is spinning the shellacking they took last week from Sheriff Shaun Golden, Surrogate Rosemarie Peters, Freeholder Director Tom Arnone and Freeholder Deputy Director Serena DiMaso as a function of President-elect Donald Trump’s performance in the county.
Vin’s spin is laughable on many levels. Let’s hope he believes it.
The Monmouth GOP swept the county races because, under Golden’s leadership, they campaign the same way the govern. They work smarter and harder with less money.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2016 Elections, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democrats, Monmouth GOP, Opinion | Tags: Art Gallagher, Dirty Doherty, Jeff Cantor, Lawless Matt Doherty, Matt Doherty, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Dems, Monmouth GOP, Opinion, Rosemarie Peters, Serena DiMaso, Shaun Golden, Sue Fulton, Tom Arnone, Tom Szymanski, Vin Gopal, Vincent Solomeno | 1 Comment »

The narrative that Christie was demoted because he was stacking the new administration with his own loyalists and had been doing the job with the belief that Trump would lose the election is entirely believable to observers and participants of Christie’s governance of New Jersey.
That Trump quickly and decisively put Vice President-elect Pence in charge of the transition should give comfort to anyone who fears that the Trump Administration will be a reckless frat party.
Yet, New Jerseyans are hopeful that Christie will land and accept a job in the Trump Administration. The best thing for New Jersey and Christie is for him to get out of Trenton. The sooner the better.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Chris Christie, Donald Trump, New Jersey, Unitied States of America | Tags: Art Gallagher, Chris Christie, Donald Trump, New Jersey, Opinion, President Elect Donald J.

The Asbury Park Press is peddling a story about Eatontown Mayor Dennis Connelly’s recent employment as the manager of the Motor Vehicle Commission office in Freehold. But other than a gadfly’s complaint about the position being a patronage job, The Asbury Park Press did not back up their sensational headline, Concern raised over Eatontown mayor’s new job, with any concerns.
What is the concern? It is a patronage job. If a Democrat is elected governor next year, Connelly, a Republican, will be out of the job. A Democrat will be appointed to that job. Will The Asbury Park Press be concerned then?
Connelly did not try to hide that he had taken a job with MVC. He announced it on facebook.
Last year, Freehold Borough Councilman Kevin Kane was a Democratic candidate for County Clerk. He got trounced by Clerk Christine Hanlon, the incumbent Republican. Four months later Kane landed a $65,000 per year job for Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop. Kane is boosting his pension credits from being a part time councilman with his new job. The Asbury Press did not express any concern about Kane’s new job. The Jersey Jounal/NJ.com was concerned.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, Opinion | Tags: Art Gallagher, Asbury Park Press, Christine Hanlon, Eatontown, Jeff Cantor, Lawless Matt Doherty, Maggie Moran, Matt Doherty, Mayor Dennis Connelly, Monmouth County News, Opinion, Rosemarie Peters, Sheriff Shaun Golden, Vincent Solomeno | 5 Comments »
