    Well Tom Burke is running for the Republican nomination but doesn’t have any support within the Belmar Republican Committee. I expect another candidate that the Committee can support will be making an announcement within a couple of weeks.

    I want to know whom she is fighting to keep taxes down, as stated in the recent newsletter. And how will she do it.

    #5 I don’t know who you are and was not accusing you of any wrong doing. From what I have seen in the decisions made it does not appear to be on the residents best interests.

    Here’s an easy question… Who is paying for this thing at 10th Avenue Burrito ? Was it donated ?

    I’m sure the Democrats are paying. If 10th Ave donated, it would open up a whole can of worms with the campaign finance laws.

    Some ideas for Belmar that perhaps she would be interested in:

    more garden spaces with benches

    a new library for adults

    fundraisers to provide school trips to students

    events for Earth day, such as planting new trees

    rezoning ocean ave to eliminate bars

    getting unsafe cars off the streets of Belmar

    providing laptop computers to all students

    #8. I have nothing against anything you say except for the last thing. I don’t believe it’s a good idea to let women read.
    There’s no telling where that can lead. Much too dangerous.

    You obviously don’t know me-or my sense of humor-of course I know it’s a game-my comments are off/again-on/again -attached with humorous reactions-actually, I recently had some fun with ms perspicacity (aka despicable me) who called me a saint twice-in separate commentaries(sarcastically)-I acted thrilled about my “sainthood”…..but I was joking! Couldn’t you get the hint when I used meatball maker? I advise YOU to calm down-get a sense of humor-it’ll help you to calm down….

    Claire- is the Belmar Democratic Committee so embarrassed of the way Belmar beach looks that they use a picture of Spring Lake beach in their logo instead? I am sure any number of local photographers would give you a picture of the Belmar shoreline if you asked:)

    Ben #18 They don’t care what you think or what they do they have lots of support. If they did care what goes on, we would not have the antics in the court etc. etc.

    CLAIRE #20-I am referencing the picture of the ocean on the Belmar Democratic Committee’s letterhead. It is Spring Lake beach, not Belmar.

    Elected officials should conduct business, like reading and understanding all the Belmar ordinances that are on the books and proposed so they understand what they are voting on or overseeing and can ask intelligent questions. Social projects are nice but should be secondary to running the town properly and ethically. Maybe look into taking some government and fiscal management courses? Commenter #13 has some good suggestions that would benefit the majority of residents, not just females and children.
