Green to represent Manalapan GOP for Twp. Committee

After a strong turnout by County Committee members, Butch Budai and Steve Johnson, who challenged and lost last years GOP Primary to Green and Garcia, realized that they wouldn’t gain nomination during Saturday’s Candidate selection and opted to drop out of the running, declaring full support for Ryan Green as the party’s nominee.

Marlboro: Ex-mayor wants town to dismiss suit against him

Marlboro asserts damage done by bribed officials

A complaint filed by Marlboro Township in November asserts that the town was indeed damaged by the actions of four former public officials who accepted more than $300,000 in bribes from real estate developers between 1997 and 2004.

Marlboro claims that the corrupt activity by those officials resulted in increased development and a corresponding increase in the need for public services, such as roads and schools. As a result, the town would like to recoup damages of at least $300,000.
