For the benefit of my readers from Hazlet who are still not convinced that Vincent Solomeno’s character assassination attempt on Mayor Sue Kiley is based upon outright lies, I visited Town Hall yesterday to get the documentation which proves it.
As “proof” of his allegation that Kiley accepted an illegal campaign contribution from Maser Consulting during her first election in 2014 and then illegally appointed the firm Township Planner, Solomeno has been posting this clip of the Township’s pay to play ordinance: Read the rest of this entry »

After being rejected by both his Party and Monmouth County voters, serial candidate Vincent Solomeno is desperate for a win.
The unemployed politician…Solomeno told the Asbury Park Press he was a full time candidate when he ran for Monmouth County Surrogate last year and the owner of the electrical contractor he currently lists as his full time employer on LinkedIn told us she laid him off in July, after three months in that job… Solomeno was rejected by the Democrats when he sought the nomination for Freeholder in 2010,was ousted as the leader of the Bayshore Democratic Caucus in 2012 and he was the low vote getter..even in Hazlet…when he ran for County Surrogate last year.
Now, apparently thinking he is losing again in his attempt to unseat Mayor Sue Kiley on the Hazlet Township Committee, Solomeno’s campaign has launched a bizarre and deceitful website, HolyFamilyFacts, that slanders Kiley and a respected Monmouth County engineering firm, Maser Consulting.

Solomeno was the poorest performing Democrat on the County ticket last year, losing badly to Surrogate Rosemarie Peters by a margin of 58%-42%. He performed slightly better in his hometown of Hazlet where he lost to Peters, of Middletown, by 56% to 44%, while losing every election district in the township. His effort last year was hampered when he denied using prostitutes after a facebook post wherein he announced that a “swedish whore name Cindy usually knows where to find me” was discovered online.
Vincent’s maturity and judgement does not appear to have improved in the last year. Read the rest of this entry »
