Monmouth County Democrats, led by former freeholder candidate Sue Fulton, Middletown committeewoman candidate Tricia Maguire, Red Bank Councilman Ed Zipprich and Councilwoman Kathy Horgan took the the streets of Red Bank on Saturday to protest Ocean Township Deputy Mayor Rob Acerra’s alleged use of a hot mess chicken emoji on the campaign facebook page of LD 11 Assembly Members Eric Houghtaling and Joann Downey.
Acerra is one of the Republicans running against Houghtaling and Downey, along with Red Bank Councilman Michael Whelan. The protest took place outside Senator Jennifer Beck’s legislative office on Monmouth Street.
Houghtaling and Downey, who would rather their reelection campaign be about facebook emojis than their records in the Assembly as special interest puppets, both shared photos of the protesters holding handmade signs and rubber chickens on their personal facebook pages.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2017 Elections, Monmouth County News | Tags: 11th Legislative District, 13th legislative district, Brian Wilton, District 4 Coalition for Change, Ed Zipprich, Eric Houghtaling, Hot mess chicken emoji, Jennifer Beck, Joann Downey, Kathy Horgan, Margie Donlon, Mariel DiDato, Monmouth County News, Rob Acerra, Sean Byrnes, Sue Fulton, Tricia Maguire, Vin Gopal | 4 Comments »
