Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon led the effort to terminate New Jersey’s Red Light Camera Program.
O’Scanlon and Co. have been relentless in monitoring the Red Light Camera Program and telling the truth about it. They have hired independent experts to investigate complaints and document fraud within the program. They have sorted through data that has regularly been obfuscated by the red light camera companies (and bureaucrats friendly to them) to reflect improved safety conditions at RCL intersections where in fact conditions had often worsened. They have worked hard in getting the word out about the program’s failure and corruption. They have countered expensive advertising campaigns by the red light camera companies and countered expensive lobbyists working the halls of the Statehouse, without the benefit of the profits the red light camera companies stole from the motoring public to fund their efforts.
In thwarting the Red Light Camera Program’s renewal, O’Scanlon has proved himself to be “the real deal”….a leader who fights for the right thing because it is the right thing. He is an example of what a “public servant” should be.

Dubbed The Architect by Monmouth GOP Chairman Shaun Golden, Hanlon designed Golden’s defeat of John Bennett for leadership of the County Party, avenging her razor thin 3 vote defeat by Bennett in 2012. By building a coalition of previous regional rivals and splitting Bennett’s 2012 coalition, which he failed to nourish, Hanlon demonstrated strategic leadership without seeking the limelight or accolades.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County, Opinion | Tags: Art Gallagher, Assemblyman Declan O'Scanlon, Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty, Christine Hanlon, Declan O'Scanlon, Governor Chris Christie, Jon Hornik, Juan Malave, MoreMonmouthMusings, Rob Nicastro, Vin Gopal, Winners and Losers, Winners and Losers of 2014 | 22 Comments »
