Twisted Sister

WHO’S UP

Twisted Sister

There are a lot of people out there who aren’t going to take it, ensuring, at the very least, the survival of the Ho-Ho-Kus heavy metal act from the 1980’s.

Katie Rotondi

The new chair of the Sussex County Democratic Committee previously served as chair of the Young Democrats of Sussex County.

Jane Kelly

This from The Bergen Record’s Dustin Racippoi: “Sensing that a newly formed legislative committee to investigate Gov. Phil Murphy’s hiring practices was coming at him like a ‘locomotive,’ Kelly, a vice president in charge of ethics at the Schools Development Authority (SDA), called the governor’s office in November to warn of another potentially damaging matter. She called Murphy’s office to warn him and instead got low-balled for doing her job.

Laura Matos

The general manager of Kivvit was elected as the new LUPE PAC president for the 2019-2020 term.

Robert Field

The current aide to the Governor will receive a promotion to Senior Aide to the Governor. In his role, Field serves as a liaison between the Governor’s Front Office and Federal, County and Local Elected Officials to assist with various issues.

WHO’S DOWN

Heather Darling

Things don’t seem to be getting any easier for Heather Darling, the Republican candidate for Morris County Surrogate, according to InsiderNJ columnist Fred Snowflack. After withstanding unusually harsh personal attacks from a GOP  primary opponent, Darling is now being accused of urging struggling families to help make ends meet by selling their babies.

Richard Smith

The president of the New Jersey chapter of the NAACP got an earful from members after he signed onto a pro-Norcross op-ed penned by U.S. Senators Cory Booker and Bob Menendez.

Kellyanne Conway

An independent government investigative agency said the senior adviser to President Donald J. Trump (and New Jersey native) twice violated the Hatch Act, which prohibits government employees from engaging in political activities.

Matt Platkin

The aftermath of last week’s select legislative committee report on the Brennan-Alvarez mess wasn’t kind to Governor Phil Murphy’s chief counsel.

Jim McGreevey

According to a story in the Hudson County View, six months after the Jersey City Employment and Training Program voted out the former governor as their executive director, officials allege that a forensic audit “shows millions of dollars are either unaccounted for or were redirected to a McGreevey-run non-profit.” McGreevey vociferously proclaimed his innocence and pointed the finger at Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop. He later released past years’ audits, contradicting the claims of Fulop’s allies.

The Burlington GOP

The party organization is out of their magnificent Mount Holly headquarters after 3o years.
