>Democracy For America Canvassing in Red Bank Tomorrow, Oct. 2nd

>As everyone may know, we are entering the homestretch of the 2010 campaign season and progressive candidates need your help.

The best way to stop the Republicans from erasing all the gains we, as Democrats, have made in the past two years is to get out there and get involved. You can do that by hooking up with the local chapter of Democracy for America(DFA) for Democracy for America’s National Day of Action this Saturday, October 2.

Red Bank Councilman and local chapter president for Democracy for America, Ed Zipprich will be hosting a Day of Action event starting at 1 PM.

They will start by meeting up at the Zebu Forno, Broad Street, in Red Bank and will be canvassing the Red Bank area to support Congressman Pallone’s re-election. They will be working for our county candidates Eric Brophy for Monmouth County Sheriff, Councilwoman Janice Venables who is running for the Board of Chosen Freeholders with incumbent Freeholder (Judge) John D’Amico, as well.

This DFA Day of Action will also add gusto to local municipal candidates’ campaigns for re-election — Red Bank Councilwomen Kathy Horgan and Sharon Lee.

Volunteers are welcomed to join and participate in tomorrow event.

Byrnes Easliy defeats Beson, Will Run Against Curley For Monmouth County Freeholder

I just returned home from todays Monmouth County Democratic Party’s Mini-Convention that was held at  Red Bank’s Carpenter’s Hall, where the big news of the day happened.
By a tally of 147  to 41, Middletown Committeeman Sean Byrnes was chosen over former Neptune Mayor Mike Beson to be the Monmouth County Democrats candidate for Freeholder.
Sean Byrnes will be facing off against former Red Bank Councilman  and fellow Midddletown resident, Republican John Curly  to succeed Freeholder Director Barbara McMorrow, who announced last week that she would not seek re-election due to health reason.

Middletown’s Sean Byrnes to Seek Freeholder Position in Monmouth County


I have a stunning announcement to make, one quite frankly that has taken me by surprise but am very glad to hear.

Middletown Democratic Committeeman, Sean Byrnes, will be seeking the Democratic Party line to run for Monmouth County Freeholder at the party’s convention on Saturday.  
Sean Byrnes will be seeking to fill the seat left open by Freeholder Director Barbara McMorrow,when she announced that she would not be seeking re-election this year due to health concerns. 
From what I have been told, the other notable in the race is former 11th District Assembly
candidate Mike Beeson, Ocean Township.
Whomever wins the support of the Monmouth County Democrats on Saturday, wether it is Sean Byrnes, Mike Beeson or some other as yet unnamed person, they will be facing off against last years  Republican challanger John Curley, who lost narrowly to Freeholder Amy Mallet.

Mallett Turns Monmouth Blue

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.

Reports of her triumph started to be reported around 6 pm last night, PolitickerNJ was the first to report followed by Save the Jersey Blog and Blue Jersey.

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.

Deputy AG on the ground in Monmouth as workers resume inventory

From Politicker NJ this morning comes the following news, it seems that the County Clerk, Clair French needed to stop the counting of ballets last night until she could get a representative from the Attorney Generals office to oversee the goings on. It must be getting hot and heavy down in Freehold:

A Deputy Attorney General is in the Monmouth County Clerk’s Office observing as Superintendent of Elections workers at 5 p.m. again began tallying provisional ballots.

Democratic Party representative Michael Mangan and Republican Party representative Rosanne Scotti also stand in the room with the attorney general’s office representative and the elections workers.

“All of the material they inventory will go to the Board of Elections where two Republicans and two Democrats will count all of the provisional ballots,” said County Clerk Claire French.

The process could take up to two weeks, according to French.

At stake is who wins the Monmouth County Freeholders’ election, Democrat Amy Mallet or Republican John Curley. As of right now, Mallet leads Curley by 18 votes with the provisional ballots yet to be counted.

If Mallet hangs on and wins, control of the Monmouth County Freeholder Board would flip to the Democrats.
