In January, the Neptune Township Republicans announced that they were seeking candidates to oppose Rizzo and Lane in November for the two seats coming up at the Township Committee.

We have discussed this topic before.  On the incumbent side, we have two Committeemen who do not represent the people of Ocean Grove; they are part of a monolithic one-party rule Democrat machine that might as well be a dictatorship.

The Committee certainly lacks transparency  and motivation to represent the citizens of Ocean Grove.   They are secretive, abusive of Grovers who attend their meetings, and disdainful of our issues.

In fact they are suspected of worrisome motives in how they are administering  the North End Area in Need of Redevelopment.  Since the days of Mary Beth Jahn, they refuse to participate in legitimate dialogues on Blogfinger, despite the fact that we average about 1,000 hits a day, yet they will appear before the Home Groaners to dish out murky “news” before maybe 60 people.

The Dem incumbents never say anything to Grover citizens other than their usual evasive gobbledygook offered at their meetings which are tightly controlled to prevent any meaningful exchanges.

Our only hope is elect the two Republicans:  Gary Moll and Kendra Hogan, both of Neptune Township.  They sent a press release to the Qoaster, which the Qoastericans dutifully regurgitated back in the May 9 edition.  In that release, the words “Ocean Grove” were not uttered.

In the last two years I have had some conversations with the Neptune Repubs, but so far I have heard nothing from their candidates that would indicate a familiarity with our specific problems much less solutions to the issues.

If we get the chance, we will ask them if they represent the citizens of Ocean Grove in addition to the Neptuners, and what can they tell us about the performance of the current Committee regarding OG.

Also, how do they feel about term limits and a possible change in how the mayor is chosen?

We will have to see if the elephants offer any good reasons to vote for them other than to fill at least one seat on the Committee which, in of itself, might be reason enough to give them our votes.

This song is dedicated to the 5 Committeemen.  They don’t seem to be good with numbers,  but they do understand counting votes.  Let’s give them Grover numbers to worry about.
