New Jersey MVC will no longer be provide information about resident motorist to companies that operate red-light and speed cameras for other states, if bipartisan legislation introduced by Senators Declan O’Scanlon, Nick Sacco, Nicolas Scutari becomes law.
The Camera Enforcement Inoculation Act prohibits the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission from providing identifying information to camera enforcement entities, thus making it impossible to issue tickets for automated enforcement infractions to New Jersey motorists.
This is such a great idea that Governor Phil Murphy should instruct MVC Commissioner Sue Fulton to implement the practice immediately while the bill works its way through the legislature.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Declan O'Scanlon, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, NJ State Legislature | Tags: Declan O'Scanlon, Governor Phil Murphy, NJ MVC, Red Light Cameras, Sen Nicholas Scutari, Senator Declan O'Scanlon, Senator Nick Sacco, Speed Cameras, Sue Fulton | 5 Comments »

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 »

Monmouth County’s Democrat leadership is spinning the shellacking they took last week from Sheriff Shaun Golden, Surrogate Rosemarie Peters, Freeholder Director Tom Arnone and Freeholder Deputy Director Serena DiMaso as a function of President-elect Donald Trump’s performance in the county.
Vin’s spin is laughable on many levels. Let’s hope he believes it.
The Monmouth GOP swept the county races because, under Golden’s leadership, they campaign the same way the govern. They work smarter and harder with less money.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2016 Elections, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democrats, Monmouth GOP, Opinion | Tags: Art Gallagher, Dirty Doherty, Jeff Cantor, Lawless Matt Doherty, Matt Doherty, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Dems, Monmouth GOP, Opinion, Rosemarie Peters, Serena DiMaso, Shaun Golden, Sue Fulton, Tom Arnone, Tom Szymanski, Vin Gopal, Vincent Solomeno | 1 Comment »
Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty, a Democrat candidate for Monmouth County Freeholder, has posted a plea to his supporters on social media to make sure they get out to vote for him because Republicans might try to suppress the vote.
Doherty linked his comment to an Asbury Park Press article about alleged voter suppression during the 1981 New Jersey gubernatorial election when Tom Kean, Sr defeated then Congressman Jim Floro by 1797 votes and the Democratic National Committee’s allegation that Donald Trump’s campaign in attempting to suppress minority turnout in this year’s election.
Lorenzo W. Dangler, president of the Greater Long Branch NAACP, told APP that he was unaware of any real fears of voter suppression in Monmouth County. Dangler emphasized that his organization has not endorsed any candidates. “We’re neutral,” he said.

We’re three weeks before Election Day and the only policy proposal that the Monmouth County Democratic candidates for County office have made is Surrogate candidate Vincent Solomeno’s pledge to blatantly break the law with regard to the access to death certificates.
Maybe that’s because they know if they reveal plans to impose a rain water tax on Monmouth County property owners, Lawless Matt Doherty and Sketchy Sue Fulton know that they would even lose in Democrat strongholds like Neptune Township and Long Branch.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2016 Elections, Matt Doherty, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, Vin Gopal | Tags: Devious Doherty, Dirty Doherty, Goofy Gopal, Lawless Matt Doherty, Martin O'Malley, Matt Doherty, Monmouth County Chairman Vin Gopal, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democrats, Rain Tax, Sketchy Sue Fulton, Sue Fulton, Vincent Solomeno | Comments Off on Monmouth Dems Embrace The Rain Water Tax Champion
Sue Fulton, a Democrat candidate for Monmouth County Freeholder, said she would reduce property taxes by 5% last week at a candidates forum at the Four Seasons 55+ community clubhouse in Manalapan.
Fulton did not say what programs she would cut, or what fiscal gimmicks she would employ, to come up with the $15.275 million. In a television commercial that started airing today on cable, Fulton said,”Cutting taxes won’t be easy. But I learned a long time ago, the the tougher the job, the harder you work.”
Fulton and her running mate, Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty, who we already know is sketchy, criticized their opponents, Freeholder Director Tom and Arnone and Deputy Freeholder Director Serena DiMaso, for the $4.5 million dollar property tax cut they made this year.

Deputy Freeolder Director Serena DiMaso was challenged by her Democrat opponent, Sue Fulton, to declare her differences with the Republican National Platform at a candidates forum on Thursday night at the Four Seasons 55+ community in Manalapan.
Both DiMaso and Fulton were both aware that Democrat operatives were seated in the audience recording the exchange for use in the barrage of TV commercials that will attack DiMaso starting next week and extending through election day.
Rather than get into a same sex marriage or abortion debate by answering the GOP platform question, DiMaso deftly pivoted and addressed the presidential candidates.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2016 Elections, Manalapan, Monmouth County, Monmouth County Board of Freeholders, Serena DiMaso | Tags: 2016 Elections, Deputy Freeholder Director Serena DiMaso, Four Seasons Manalapan, Manalapan, Monmouth County News, Serena DiMaso, Sue Fulton | 16 Comments »
