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.

Congressman Chris Smith’s remarks at the Monmouth County 9-11 remembrance

Delivered at Mt Mitchill, Atlantic Highlands, September 11, 2020

Congressman Chris Smith

Everyone remembers where they were and what they were doing when terrorists hijacked four airliners in order to commit the worst act of terrorism in American history.

   Nearly 700 New Jerseyans—147 from Monmouth County alone—lost their lives that day.

   No one remembers the shock, horror and numbing sorrow more, however, than the families and close friends of the victims.

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.
