    Went to vote around 6 pm and no lines and only two other voters.

    TV now declaring Murphy won in NJ so we can all look forward to higher taxes – both State and probably federal.

    Worst part was the drive to the polls and seeing so many signs up for Vicari.

      Boo Hoo Hoo how much did your taxes go down under Gov Chrisco? How bout da RepubliCON led Ocean County Freeloaders supporters of pussy grabbers and uncle Fester he of the not qualified pol appointment jobs ? How bout the Friends and Family Plan loving Republicon TC
      Hey still no Taco Bell I’m guessing the vig for the permits under the guise of “site improvements” isn’t going so well
      Next you will tell me Happy Gilmore is an honorable man
      Then you will tell us Trump U wasn’t a fraud
      Fly that drone and expose just who owns that land locked property behind Penn Ave and Shop Rite west of the road
      Anyone wanna take a guess?

      • llewellynh says:

        Guess you didn’t read the last line I wrote. I am an Independent and am very concerned about the financial situation that is already hurting so many of my neighbors.

        But that puts me in the minority in this State as we can see from the results tonight. I’m used to that and will just push on.

          Fear NOT for I Donald J Trump will put a widget factory in Lacey in place of the plant full of 100 K jobs
          I will pave Rt 9 in gold and I will lift the vig that is holding up the Taco Bell
          Tell your neighbors to back The King of Lacey and the Friends N Family Plan where they will go from haven’t yetters to full Friends N Family Plan members
          Don’t you find it odd RepubliCONS who belong to unions and have Govt jobs is that not hypocrisy

      Sadly I was one those who did not even show up. It simply was not worth it. Goldman’s boy was a shoe in and the people down here would elected Joseph Stalin if their was an “R” behind his name. It is a sad state of affairs indeed.

      • llewellynh says:

        I went to vote for anyone except Vicari on that line because it’s time for us to hold people accountable where we can. We just don’t get that many opportunities but I admit I didn’t vote in many of the other categories offered.

        From seeing those signs it hit me that probably most of them didn’t even know what had been going on. This is the only news outlet that provides us with that pertinent sort of information.

        But when we moved here we did have an iffy paper that did cover all Town meetings and some Planning Commission and Board of Adjustment meetings as well.

        Part of the problem around here is that we don’t get news and the politicians just love it that way.

    • why vote? says:

      Just sent in my paperwork to the elections board , so I am an undeclared voter once more..About taxes. The last 3 democrats we had as governor had 12 years in office. The last 3 republicans had 24 years in office. Doesn’t look like it matters what party is in office. We get screwed every time

        Phil Murphy to legalize weed and raise tax revenue from it
        So why are there 13 Commissioners at the OCUA again each receiving pay and medical benefits?
        End Home Rule
        End The Friends N Family Plan
        Cap all Govt workers Pay
        Legalize Sports betting use the money for infrastructure

      Tell Tommy to vote NO on this Tax Increase on the Middle Class folks

  2. USAFWX says:

    All I can say is oh well. I hope I am wrong and taxes will not go up much faster now that the Democrats have full control of the Governor’s office, the Senate and the Assembly.

    On the bright side, at least we can all get high while they are in our pockets!

    • #BonespursConManFraud says:

      Did they raise your union dues?
      Do you know what the vig is for the permit for the Taco Bell ? A Traffic light or 2 ?
      Did your taxes go down under Christie?
      How bout under the King of Lacey and the Pussy grabber of Ocean?
      Why exactly do we need 13 Republicons on the OCUA getting paid and FREE BENEFITS

    • Mercy Otis Warren says:

      I agree with your sentiment minus the sarcasm in the last sentence. Legalizing marijuana is the right thing to do and it could save us a bunch of law enforcement money in the long run (if this were a state other than NJ) NJ never cuts government no matter what. Toking the magic dragon is none of the state’s business, but since Purdue Pharma (makers of synthetic heroin) aren’t interested in competition, the law makers must step in and protect their donors, don’t you know? Plus said involvement puts all the law enforcement/court/penal lobbyist firmly in their corner too)?! Win win for the aforementioned — lose lose for the tax payers and cheap pain relief; not to mention freedom.

    • #Pinesysrstupidppl says:

      Attn Pineys

      None of this not needed road is “Free”

      “Lacey officials said the contract will be funded in part by a $1 million grant from the state Department of Transportation and $500,000 grant from Ocean County, the latter of which will pay for construction of a new recreation trail alongside the bypass road. The remainder of the cost will be funded by Lacey taxpayers.
      Read: Lacey bonds $3M more for rail trail road”
      Yes Piney s you are paying for the whole bill for this not needed road
      What is the “shake down” vie ie “site improvement” for Taco Bell?
