>Lincroft Resident Carol Fowler To Replace Desevo on Middletown Democratic Ticket

>At last nights meeting of the Middletown Democratic Executive Committee, held at the American Legion post 338 in Leonardo, the members of the Executive Committee were introduced to the candidate that Democratic Chairman Joe Caliendo and members of the screening committee had chosen to replace Alex Desevo as a candidate for Middletown Township Committee.

After being introduced by Chairman Caliendo, Lincroft resident Carol Fowler stood before the Executive Committee and spoke a few words about herself and the reasons why she was looking forward to running for Township Committee.
(Carol Fowler, Candidate for Middletown
Township Committee )
Many of the members in the room, myself included, had never met or spoken to Carol Fowler before tonight so we were eager to hear about her background.
Carol Fowler has been a Lincroft resident for over 25 years, graduating from St. Leo’s Elementary School and Red Bank Catholic High School. She has been a member of the Lincroft First Aid and Rescue Squad 28 years, serving as an executive officer for 20 years. She earned a B.S degree in Biology /Pre-Med, from the college of St. Elizabeth Convent Station (Morristown). She was a former substitute teacher and Special Ed classroom aid for the Middletown school system back a number of years ago. Currently she works as the Director of the Center for US War Veterans for the National Guard Museum in Sea Girt NJ. She also fills the roll of Assistant Curator of Oral History at the museum,having interviewed over 400 veterans for the museum.
Her son is a 4th generation Volunteer Fireman in Middletown who’s father, grandfather and great-grandfather have all served as Middletown Fire Chiefs.
Ms. Fowler stated that she is highly insulted about the way that tax dollars are spent in Middletown and about how so much money has been borrowed through bonding over the years that it will take many many years to pay down the debt. She stated that she would like to see the Township Committee meetings televised and is also highly insulted at being told that the township will not spend any money to televise them after bonding so much money over the years, it’s like being hit by a stone wall.
She said that she wants to serve the community and inform the residents of what is really going on in Middletown.
After hearing Carol Fowler speak, the members of the Executive Committee were highly impressed with her. Her service to the community, deep roots in Middletown and the passion with which she spoke, convinced all in the room to give unanimous approval to her candidacy.
So it is now onto November with a full ticket, Jim Grenafege and Carol Fowler will be this years Democratic candidates for Middletown Township Committee.

  1. >Good luck Carol, you've got my vote.We need you and Jim to win, and give the residents a voice.

  2. >Great choice! I look forward to having 2 representatives on the Township committee who will represent and serve the people and not a political party. It's obvious neither Carol or Jim have their own self serving agenda, and will make a difference in this town. Thank you for stepping up to the plate and for fighting for us.

  3. >Ditto to the above comments – let's make sure we get the vote out for Carol when it matters.

  4. >Perhaps this has all been a blessing in disguise for Middletown democrats and the township people. Ms. Fowler's bio shows her to be the kind of person that gives to the township as opposed to the current crop of politicians. I'm sure the mud slinging hacks will be out in force – but this time the people are watching VERY closely.

  5. >Carol may not have a self serving agenda, but Jim sure does!

  6. >Carol may not have an agenda, but Jim sure does!

  7. >I'm very pleased with having Carol on the ticket. It's up to all of us to get out there and support Carol & Jim.This a large town and an uphill battle for the Dem. candidates.I hope Mr. Caliendo has a more organized game plan, and gets his people working hard to get out the vote. Improve what works and change what doesn't.

  8. >Anon 11:14,What self-serving agenda does Jim Grenafege have other than wanting honest and open government? That is all he has ever asked for.

  9. >Thank you Carol for having the courage and conviction to try and make a difference in this town.The contrast between you and your opponents couldn't be more striking.Fiore has shown arrogance and disdain for the people he is supposed to represent and certainly has no problem with lying to us as well.His running mate Mrs. Murray, seems quite ambitious in making a name for herself. I don't know where she finds the time with her obvious passion for writing racy and eroctic novels under a pen name.

  10. >anon 11:14: I'd like to hear what Jim's self serving agenda is.If fighting for open and transparent government is self serving, than I'm all for it. If challenging the TC's incompetence and blatant waste of tax payer's money is self serving, then he has my vote.He's smarter than all the rest of them up there, and has the passion and courage to fight and stand up to them.

  11. >Having known Carol for many years I can say that her only motivation is to serve the people of Middletown well. She has shown this through her many years of distinguished volunteer service to the town.A new voice is desperately needed on the tc and she will speak out for the best interest for all of us.

  12. >Steph Murray writes racy novels? How come that's not in her bio?

  13. >Maybe she hasn't finished writing her story.

  14. >Ms. Murray appears to be just another one of Peter's Punks. Thank you,Carol, for taking on the endeavor of trying to serve the people in this township who really need a voice….everyone one of us except the "card holding" republicans.The voice of the people has been ignored for TOO LONG !
