When last we heard of Republicans in Asbury Park, Municipal GOP Chairwoman Louis Murray was making national news by calling for a ban of beachwear on the boardwalk. That didn’t go the way Murray planned.
By some numbers, Asbury Park looks like a waste of time for Republicans. Only 464 of the city’s registered 7,404 voters are Republicans. 2,723 are Democrats and 4,209 are Unaffiliated, according to Wikipedia.
By other numbers, no one in New Jersey should ignore Asbury Park. New Jersey taxpayers fund the city’s schools and municipal government. Trenton sent $57.6 million to Asbury Park for its schools in 2011-2012 and $9.5 million for its current municipal budget.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Asbury Park | Tags: Asbury Park, Asbury Park elections, Asbury Park Sun, Danny Harris, Duane Small, Jim Keady, Joe Grillo, Kevin Sanders, Nora Hyland, Remond Palmer, Senator Kevin O'Toole, Sue Henderson | 3 Comments »
