Middletown Mayor Tony Perry announced that his wife Alannah is pregnant. The first child of the couple is due in August, the mayor said during a Quarantine Edition interview with Sophia Haber Brock.
In the 19 minute interview with Brock, a 10th grade student at Middletown High School North, Perry also discussed juggling his full time employment with Hackensack-Meridan Health with being mayor, the Township’s interaction with County, State and Federal officials in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and he praised the selfless work on New Jersey’s medical workers and first responders.

The Middletown Township Committee voted unanimously on Tuesday to acquire a blighted commercial property on Leonardville Road in Belford and to build 10-20 affordable housing units for veterans in partnership with the Middletown Housing Authority.
The property at 37-45 Leonardville Road, across the street from the Carvel Ice Cream store, was previously the home of Middletown Tool Rental and a gas station before that. It has been vacant and overgrown for roughly 20 years. The Township acquired a certification from the NJ Department of Environmental Protection that the property is not contaminated prior to approving the acquisition.

Stephanie Murray resigned as mayor of Middletown Township this afternoon in a hand delivered letter to the Township Clerk. Her resignation from the Township Committee is effective immediately, MMM has learned.
Once considered a rising star in Monmouth County political circles, Murray’s prospects for higher office took a hit in 2016 after the Asbury Park Press wrote an inaccurate and incomplete story about her family’s financial difficulties. Never-the-less, Murray was overwhelmingly reelected by Middletown voters last November and was selected to serve as mayor this year by her colleagues on the Township Committee.
