I have been a Bayshore resident all of my life. I am a Middletown resident and active in the Monmouth County and Middletown Township Democratic Parties. I believe it is possible to have “Truth, Justice and the American Way” all at once. I intend to comment on many things that effect us here in Middletown, the Bayshore and the great state of New Jersey.
“What do our opponents mean when they apply to us the label “Liberals?” if by “Liberals” they mean, as they want people to believe, someone who is soft in his policies abroad, who is against local government, and who is unconcerned with the taxpayer’s dollar, then …we are not that kind of “Liberal.” But if by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without ridgid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people–their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties–someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal”, then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal”- John F. Kennedy [Sept.14,1960]
