If it’s not for Sandy, it’s for the Covid


Here’s the bill:

Introduced last June 22, exact same day as Murphy’s famous news conference:

    Plenary license holders are suckers. The life of our restaurants are being destroyed and the legislature decided to grant their buds without goods windfall advantages. Just brazen but you all know who really runs NJ

    BS. This hurts the year round liquor license holders (and their employees)struggling through the fall – winter – spring to make ends meet and remain in business. Now these your round license holders will have the added burden of competing with the seasonal holders all year long who never paid the huge premium for the year round license.

    I wonder how many of the seasonal license holders donated to the north Jersey political hacks sponsoring the bill to get this going.

    Maybe do nothing number 2, Frank Cincelli, who lives right next door, will do something about the illegal outside bar. But I doubt it, he’s turned a blind eye to it all along so far. Besides, he’s soft. He’ll only do what he’s told like go get the mail.

    #4 who is the person telling him what to do? Why doesn’t this person make sure the law is enforced or does DJ’s still have diplomatic immunity here.

    The year round license holders are now being forced by the state of NJ to up the minimum wage to $12 an hour as of January 1st. This is on top of the increase to $11 for the minimum wage that was mandated earlier in 2020.

    This is just more political fairy dust for the politicians to pay back the voting support and donations of their cronies. This will continue to hurt these small business and lead to reduced hours and likely headcount of the staff. Sadly, look for some of your favorite year round license holding restaurants and watering holes to continue to shut their doors in the months ahead.

    It was a fraud when this operational latitude was provided to seasonal license holders due to super storm Sandy. Sandy hit on October 29th when seasonal license end date was on November 14th. More pay to play with drinks on the house in the corrupt state of NJ.

    #4 & #5. Isn’t Cinelli “Code Enforcement Officer”? He’ll do nothing to D’jais or anyone else unless told to.

    Not sure but I think even though the gov signed this the town can still regulate it. Meaning, the town can force the seasonal bars to close.

    Huisman doesn’t do an ounce of work either. When he doesn’t have his feet on the desk he’s hanging out at the police station.

    Can these year round bars file a lawsuit against the state? I know they are already hurting financially, but someone needs to try.

    I believe the initial bill gave full time licenses some sort of compensation for the measures, whether it was monetary or some sort or tax credit. In other words you as a taxpayer lost.

    A bit off subject but what is the scoop on marijuana use now that it’s the new year? Can people legally smoke it?

    Doesn’t a councilperson (politically correct terminology, 2021) live down the street from the property fronted on Ocean and 18th controlling the environment of the South End of Belmar?
