  7. The old movie title “The Devil’s Brigade” seems to be appropriate to describe our local conspirators and their leader. Personally, thinking of Belmar’s residents once again paying attorneys to defend Doherty et al for their illegal actions is infuriating.

    #13. It’s not a “drama”. If you knew the facts… 10 million is not enough! After reading the above posts I am embarrassed by these responses. The abuse of political power and political corruption at this level “is way to much for a small town”. Look back to the beginning of the Doherty cronyism. The damage to hard working people has been growing incrementally to the new level $10,000,000.00. If I wrote a book it would be entitled Matt and Maggie: From Sandy to Salt. I personally was hurt by these same individuals sans Ted Bianchi. So familiar am I with their abuse and corruption, that I’d be glad to fly up and be a witness against these bullies.

    According to a gentleman who works at Family Dollar, they are selling off the Family Dollar label items because the store is changing its name and will offer the same merchandise under a new label.

    How many lawsuits is this? When will the counsel wake up and realize what a mess the Mayor got us into again!!! You know the Mayor will never step down from power (Even though, it’s the right thing to do). Maybe Brian could encourage him to take a leave of absence. Didn’t see the new committee member (Mark Walsifer) listed on the complaint, maybe the counsel should step in and appoint him as Acting Deputy Mayor. Seems he has no ties to anyone and appears very capable. At the very least, the counsel should restrict the mayor’s power for the remainder of his term. The counsel should also restrict his ability to make appointments and ensure that the administrator reports directly to the Acting Mayor and all her actions are reviewed by the counsel as a whole.

    The counsel, i.e. attorneys, are appointed by the mayor, so I doubt they are motivated to do the right thing. Except save their own tails and resign. Brian seems to have been feeling his oats with speaking up at the last meeting, but I put no faith in him either.

    Just a short note to thank the Belmar PDFOR putting up the 16th and Ocean Avenues DO NOT ENTER sign and cones today to prevent the westerly direction of traffic on this dangerous two way street. Bumper Cars is the best description for the 2 way traffic as soon as the weather improves. Acknowedged very dangerous traffic conditions on 16th Avenue running East to West from Ocean Avenue. The County DOT should wake up earlier this spring to change all dangerous two way traffic to one way East out of an abundance of CAUTION.

Kinda like United Airlines saying that they re-accommodate their passengers who are subject to bumps and drags.

    The lies we will hear from the confederation of Belmar will be rehearsed and likewise trapped.

    A question out to my friends in the legal profession. What if this case is not going well for the defendants, what if at some point discussions turn to settlement, what if as the plaintiffs have a strong case the settlement figure is huge. Do Matt, Brian, Jenn and Tom vote on it?? Who protects us taxpayers?

    #29 Mike-
    I’d like to add something to that. Is there anything that would stop a taxpayer or a group of taxpayers from suing the named defendants personally because they may have been acting as individuals and not as elected officials of this town. One more thing, if they’re being sued as individuals shouldn’t they be required to get their own attorneys and not have one paid for by the fine taxpayers of Belmar ?
