Long has served on the governing body for 16 years, the last 7 as mayor. She led the rescue and recovery from Superstorm Sandy,which is ongoing.

Murphy’s Tavern and Val’s Tavern in Rumson are likely to have a better night on Thursday than Tommy’s Tavern and Tap Room and Woody’s Grille in Sea Bright due to the fact that the Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge (S-32) will close for maintenance at 8 p.m. The bridge will reopen at 6 a.m. on Friday morning.
Uber drivers are advised that the best route to Sea Bright from Rumson is via the Oceanic Bridge into Middletown, right onto Locust Point Road and right on Locust Ave over the bridge to Navesink Ave (by the brick church). Make a right on Navesink and another right on Route 36 in Highlands. Take Route 36 over the Capt Joe Azzolina Bridge and you’re in Sea Bright. McCloone’s and Tommy’s will be down the road on your right.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County News | Tags: Bridge S-32, Freeholder Tom Arnone, Monmouth County News, Rumson, Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge, Sea Bright, Uber | Comments Off on Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge will be closed overnight Thursday through Friday morning

The Borough of Sea Bright will be able to move forward with plans to move their municipal operations out of a gymnasium, their library out of a church and police, fire and EMS services out of trailers.
