It’s finally here! In one of the most important elections in our lifetime, we finally have the chance to throw Corrupt Bob Menendez out of the Senate, and send in a Marine – someone NJ can be proud of – Bob Hugin!
Our Congressman Leonard Lance may be all that stands in the way of Speaker Pelosi! How do we know? The Washington Democrats hand picked his opponent Tom Malinowski – who has never lived in the 7th District – and parachuted him from DC into NJ.
We can keep Somerset County the best County to live in NJ by reelecting our Freeholders Patrick Scaglione and Mark Caliguire!
And we can keep our Borough the special place it is by electing a team we can be proud of – Mary Jane Canose for Mayor, and John Donahue & Lloyd Sems for Council!
Bernardsville – and you – might be the deciding vote in all of these races! So please take 10 minutes and cast your vote from 6am to 8pm today! If you need information on where to vote, you can check our site here.
Today, Tuesday November 6 – Vote Column 2! Vote the Republican Ticket!
Tom O’Dea has been caught lying again. He has been spewing misinformation that Republicans don’t care about the downtown and that the Democrats are the only ones that have done anything. In actuality, he is taking credit for the volunteerism of others, and specifically taking credit for the hard work of our Republican candidates for council and their bipartisan approach to problem solving.
Here is a must read opinion piece by Noah Rothman in Commentary Magazine, regard the Star Ledger’s shameful endorsement of Bob Menendez. You can read it here in the magazine and we also copied it below! We need people of honesty and integrity in office like Bob Hugin!
Bob Menendez and the Shame of the Star-Ledger
OCTOBER 29, 2018
BY NOAH ROTHMAN
Compromising and unconvincing.
It is a testament to the unexpected closeness of the race for U.S. Senate in New Jersey that the leading daily newspaper in the Garden State, the Star-Ledger, felt compelled to festoon its rote endorsement of Senator Bob Menendez with unconvincing apologetics.
In an editorial uninspiringly entitled “choke it down, and vote for Menendez,” which the paper illustrated with images of the senator evincing pain and embarrassment as he threw himself upon the mercy of the editorial board, the Star-Ledger nevertheless tried to convey how important it was to vote for the crook.
The Democrats want to continue the record of the last Mayor and administration. What is that signature accomplishment? Doubling our Borough debt. By our reckoning, the last Mayor, who was the Democratic nominee until replaced by O’Dea, has doubled our Borough’s debt burden to nearly $15 million dollars including the $1.2 million borrowed this year. That is almost $2,000 for every man, woman, and child in the borough without considering the associated $325,000 of annual interest to carry this debt.
What’s worse, this trend will carry on until 2020 with long term budget projections calling for another $2.7MM of additional debt.
We hope you were able to catch Leonard Lance’s winning performance in last Thursday’s 7th congressional district debate! If not you can watch his closing statement here!

Hi Neighbors –
This week, we want to highlight that in comparison to other towns, our municipal tax rate, which our mayor and council vote on, is moving in the wrong direction. In 2011 our rate was ranked 8th out of the 21 towns in Somerset county (See here for the full list).
