Contribution Disclosure Page Changed…..


They just pulled down the false information they put up yesterday that said that they didn’t file 29 day pre-election reports with NJ ELEC.

Of course they’re still in violation because those reports need to be published on the borough website and they aren’t.

a. Each and every candidate for any elected office within the Borough of Belmar, and each elected official who is a candidate for elected office other than for the office of Mayor or Council of the Borough, shall file with the Borough Clerk a true and correct copy of each and every campaign finance report they are required to file with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission, and shall do so not later than the date that the said report is due to be filed with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission.

    What am I missing, as that reads candidates for OTHER THAN the office of Mayor or council must file? Seems they have exempted themselves. Could also be read to apply to challengers, not elected officials, who are candidates for other offices only. Dog catcher? Truant officer?

    The language is probably meant to include school board candidates also?

    Anon the language you are referring to applies to a incumbent mayor or council member running for other office like freeholder or assembly. The candidate would have an obligation to comply with Belmar’s pay to play ordinance even though he was seeking an office outside of Belmar. The ordinance was meant to disclose who is influencing the both the decision makers both incumbent and seeking.

    Mike, I understand what it was meant to do, too bad the language was not more precise leaving it open to more than one interpretation. How about instead within the parens it read, ‘and each elected official of the Boro who is a candidate for any elected office outside the Boro’. By the way who drew that one up?

    It does say, other than. If I had something I didn’t want public I wouldn’t comply either. Imagine if Bill was asked,”did you have sexual relations with anyone OTHER than Monica Lewinski?”, he could have answered, “Yes” and not committed perjury.

    Bold and arrogant – what are they hiding? To avoid doubt about intent, why not just publish the information fully and truthfully?

    It’s already on ELEC’s page and also on this page. I don’t understand why they won’t just create a link to it.
