Shaun Golden, Jack Ciattarelli, Jon Bramnik and Doug Steinhardt have all been too hard on MVC Commissioner Sue Fulton for her lack of planning to safely reopen New Jersey’s Motor Vehicle Commission facilities.
The Republicans, each a potential gubernatorial candidate against Prince Philip Dunton Murphy next year, have been relentless this week in their criticism of MVC’s reopening to long lines in the heat and humidity, lack of social distancing, fights, and drivers camping overnight to get their cars registered and licenses renewed or issued.Read the rest of this entry » Posted: July 9th, 2020 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2021 NJ Gubernatorial race, MVC, New Jersey | Tags: 2021 Governors Race, Doug Steinhardt, Governor Phil Murphy, Jack Ciattarelli, MVC, New Jersey, NJ MVC, Shaun Golden, Sue Fulton | 1 Comment »

Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden is upset about the care that military veterans are getting and and the attention that the media is giving to the plight of inmates in State and County prisons compared to the sparse coverage the media is giving convalescing vets in state run homes.
“This is shameful,” Golden said of reports that the high rate of mortality at New Jersey’s veterans homes since the COVID-19 pandemic broke. “We hear more about our inmates than our veterans. Everyday I receive calls from reporters on the status of inmates and there is blanket coverage on those in the jail, yet there’s sparse coverage on our veterans.”Read the rest of this entry » Posted: April 9th, 2020 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: COVID-19, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, Shaun Golden | Tags: COVID-19, Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden, New Jersey, Shaun Golden, Veterans | Comments Off on Golden: Our veterans deserve better

Ciattarelli, who lost the GOP gubernatorial primary to former Lt. Gov Kim Guadagno in 2017, will ceremonially announce his candidacy at his high school alma matter in Raritan on January 21, according to a NewJerseyGlobe report. He told the Associated Press that he was running last February and has been a frequent guest at GOP events throughout New Jersey ever since.
