How many jobs for Mayor Kennedy? Four, and all illegal

Oct. 3rd, Asbury Park Press

Mayor Paul J. Kennedy is in trouble with the state for serving in four paid positions within the municipal government he presides over, including the role of acting borough administrator.

Kennedy also receives public salaries for his roles as the town’s acting personnel director, acting coordinator for the Americans with Disabilities Act and acting insurance administrator, according to Borough Clerk Ileana Vazquez-Gallipoli. First elected mayor in 2006, Kennedy receives no salary for that job. The mayor is seeking a third term this November.

For all these offices, Kennedy, 59, a Republican, will receive an annual salary this year of $50,000 from the taxpayers of Ocean Gate. In addition to his municipal duties, Kennedy is also a full-time employee in Ocean County’s government where he receives about $40,000 as a carpenter in the Building and Grounds Department, according to public records.

Jack Fanous Ends Campaign for Congress and Endorses Aimee Belgard

Democrats Show a United Front as the GOP Faces a Messy Primary
March 31, 2014, Campaign Press Release

(Willingboro, NJ) – Jack Fanous announced today that he will be ending his campaign for Congress in New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District and endorsing his fellow Democrat, Aimee Belgard.

“I’m endorsing Aimee because she is a strong leader who will represent our district well in Congress. She has done great things for our community, and we need someone in Congress who really understands South Jersey. Her Republican opponents moved down to this area from North Jersey just to get elected. They are outsiders who don’t understand what we need here in South Jersey, so how could they possibly represent us well in Congress? I’m proud to endorse Aimee in her efforts to become our next Representative, and I will work hard to ensure that she is victorious in November,” said Fanous.

“I greatly appreciate Jack’s support, it means so much to me. Jack has done incredible work for our veterans community and I’m excited to announce that he’ll be joining my campaign as a member of our Veterans Committee,” said Belgard. “Jack brings with him years of experience working for and advocating on behalf of veterans and I look forward to working with him on important issues that impact veterans. In Congress, I’ll fight to ensure that we keep the promises we’ve made to our veterans. I’ll strive to decrease wait times at the VA and ensure that veterans have easy access to quality health care, including mental health care. I will also work with the business community to provide job training and placement for our troops when they come home. The men and women who have bravely served our country are highly skilled and highly qualified to work in a variety of fields and I want to ensure that they are hired following their service to our nation.”

Aimee Belgard is a Democratic candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s 3rd district.  Aimee was elected to the Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders in 2012 following a highly competitive race, where she was outspent by her opponents by 6 to 1.  As Burlington County Freeholder, Aimee works across party lines building problem-solving coalitions that have delivered results for our community.  Aimee’s consensus-driven approach to governance will help break the partisan fever in Congress and restore bipartisanship in Washington.  In her position as Freeholder, Aimee currently represents more than half of the constituents of New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District
