  • Atlantic County Expecting GOP Convention Fights

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Election 2015 lacks statewide or even State Senate races at the top of the ballot, Save Jerseyans, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty on line. Far from it. Each and every Assembly seat is up, for starters, and when it comes to what most directly impacts your local quality of […]


  • The Pallone Who Cried Wolf?

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog I can’t help but wonder: was Frank Pallone voted “most likely to waste everyone’s time on inane B.S.” in High School? Only if he wasn’t a classmate of John Wisniewski! But it still would’ve been a close call even in that case. He’s back in the news […]


  • REPORT: 5-Term Monmouth Clerk French to Retire

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog That’s the word from Art Gallagher over at MMM, Save Jerseyans. Art says M.

  • Atlantic Dems and Republicans Publicly Disagree with Mazzeo

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Vince Mazzeo needs some new advisers. The freshman Assemblyman offered a weak sauce defense against gaming expansion into North Jersey back in November, saying only that “that’s for another time, another day down the road. Hopefully, way down the road.” Not exactly a “no” right? But regardless of where you […]

  • Breakfast with Shaun Golden

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog We met for breakfast at 9:30 a.m. on a brisk December Saturday but Sheriff Shaun Golden (R-Monmouth) had already held a full meeting earlier in the day before sitting down with your Blogger-in-Chief for eggs and toast at Freehold’s Sweet Lew’s Cafe, a greasy spoon located directly across from the […]


  • Mazzeo Plan: Property Tax Increase Takes it From Wrong to Worse

    By Ed Sheppard | The Save Jersey Blog Just few days ago, Save Jerseyans, I posted about how bad Vince Mazzeo’s plan for Atlantic City was and that is was the wrong plan. Well, it just went from wrong to worse. One thing I noted at the time was that Vince Mazzeo neglected to include Atlantic County […]


  • DiSomma to Sweeney: Stay out of Red Bank

    By Art Gallagher | MoreMonmouthMusings Referring to Senate President Steve Sweeney as a conflicted Trenton lobbyist, and Red Bank Councilmen Michael Dupont and Art Murphy as influence peddling shady dealers, Red Bank Republican Chairman Sean DiSomma, launched a no holds barred attack on New Jersey’s highest ranking Democratic elected official, a presumed contender for the 2017 gubernatorial […]



  • Next up: Gopal wants to take on Casagrande and Angelini

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Monmouth County Democrat Chairman Vin Gopal was once considered a real up-and-comer in state Democrat political circles. Election 2014 demonstrated that he’s more accurately described as ambitious-and-possible? Certainly not down-and-out, granted, but the wheels have absolutely come off of his Democrat county insurgency. The GOP freeholder slate swept […]

  • A Tale of Two Resorts

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog FYI – Don’t expect a ton of news from the New Jersey political scene this week, Save Jerseyans, other than good ‘ole Frank Pallone’s fun upset win over the Pelosi Democrat caucus faction down in D.C. One week out from the Thanksgiving holiday, the N.J. solar system is centered on two gatherings […]
