No Free Drinks In Spring Lake

I was researching some of the pay to play laws in some of our neighboring towns and learned to my surprise that most don’t have any.  It sort of makes sense though because, as I’ve noted recently, the party in power can’t be depended on to enforce the law against itself and the state and county won’t enforce local ordinances.  I think this is something that Monmouth County should look into.

Spring Lake, however, does have some campaign limitations and bars there that try to make political donations or give gifts to elected officials will get their licenses pulled.

    For all the chatter about moving out of Belmar think about how you live next door to the IRISH RIVERA. You too can move there because they really have low taxes. Their business district is thriving and they truly frown on payola of all sorts. Except the BREAKERS BILL that is.

    It’s election cycle time so it looks like the BELMAR incumbent candidate could offer an ordinance like the aforementioned spring lake anti-gifting legislation. Here’s to ending influence peddling in Belmar. See you at the polls. You CANNOT make this stuff up for the book.
