Congratulations go out to Monmouth County Freeholder-Elect Amy Mallet, her drawn out victory over Republican John Curley has turned Monmouth County blue after 23 years of republican domination.
What does this mean to me? It means that Democrats will clean house down in Freehold and the last remnants of ol’ Club Monmouth will be gone and I invision Barbara McMorrow being named as Director of the Freeholders come January.
Here is a little excerpt from what Bob Jorden of the Asbury Park Press has to say this morning:
“…The change in power means a handful of well-paying county government jobs will be up for grabs, as well as control over which firms land contracts and work assignments under the county’s $470 million annual budget….”
Stay tuned in the coming days, I’m sure that there will be a lot of crying, as well as cheering being done all around Monmouth County.
