Harmon Camp Responds To The Mayor


Harmon attorney Roger J. McLaughlin, of McLaughlin Stauffer & Shaklee, on Doherty’s comments to TAPinto’s Cathy Goetz:


The Mayor, as usual, ignores the plain facts. Belmar has prevented the Harmon’s

from using the property they leased from Loko – intentionally and repeatedly.


In fact, the proposed “settlement” is nothing more than another effort by Doherty

to cause damage to Tim and Matt Harmon. It actually proves the points made by

the Harmons in their federal civil action. The Mayor shuts them out of an outdoor

café/bar, while at the same time promoting the outdoor facilities of others, like the

Anchor Tavern and 10th Avenue Burrito.


We don’t think anyone will be fooled by his comments that the Harmons are trying

to “ interfere” with a settlement. They are the ones targeted by the “settlement”,

which is obvious to everyone we’ve spoken with. Our clients have no intention of

letting him get away with it.

    Dear Mr. McLaughlin,
    Please do not settle any of these lawsuits. I would love to be in court the days you get to grill Matt, Colleen, Drew, etc, etc.

    They weren’t room mates but they probably lived on the same floor. They also worked together in the Corzine administration.

    #5, #8 Her major at Douglas was Political Science. Most likely they got their political start with Jim McGreevey. I OPRA ed her resume in 2012. Prior to becoming Business Adminstrator, she was unemployed after her previous job in NJ School Construction Dept. She was hired as a consultant ( political ) by the Mayor in the summer of 2012 6 months after he hired his drinking buddy Bill Young ( also no experience ) as Belmar Business Administrator.
