Eleven Monmouth County Residents Confirmed by the Senate

Senators Joe Kyrillos, Jennifer Beck, and Sean Kean (all R- Monmouth) today applauded Senate confirmation of eleven Monmouth County residents to various state and county positions, including Peter Warshaw as Monmouth County Prosecutor, and Leslie-Ann Justus and Linda Grasso Jones as Monmouth County Superior Court judges.

Senator Kyrillos:

“Governor Christie made fantastic appointments of Monmouth County residents that, frankly, took far too long for the Senate Judiciary Committee to consider. I want to congratulate each of the appointees confirmed today and wish them the best of luck as they go about the service with which they have been charged. I am, however, disappointed that George Kolber’s nomination to the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority was held by the Committee despite his nomination being submitted in March of 2010. That body has been operating a multi-million dollar budget for nearly a year with members serving on expired terms due to the Senate’s inaction on Governor Christie’s appointments.”

Memorial Envisioned by Senator Kyrillos Inducts 56th Member

Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) issued the following statement today regarding the inductees of the 2011 class into the New Jersey Hall of Fame. Senator Kyrillos was a prime sponsor of the legislation that established the New Jersey Hall of Fame in 2005.

“The New Jersey Hall of Fame honors the men and women who played a critical role in the development of the State and the Nation,” Kyrillos said. “There have been so many mile stones in the state including the first baseball game and the first football game, the workshop of the world’s most prolific inventor, not to mention the turning point of the American Revolution. That there are literally too many distinguished New Jerseyans to list only underscores the need for a Hall of Fame dedicated to our past accomplishments to inspire our children to achieve great things.”

State Senator Joe Kyrillos (R- Monmouth/Middlesex) offered the following response to Governor Christie’s 2011 State of the State Address:

“Governor Christie has shown the people of New Jersey what true courage and leadership looks like. After nearly ten years of leadership in Trenton that was long on politics but short on results, this Governor has laid out an agenda that is bold, direct, and puts the taxpayers first. That agenda will not be without its detractors: defenders of the status quo and those that believe political or survival is an end in itself.

Legislation reforming the property assessment process in Monmouth County has cleared the Senate. The bill (S-2234), sponsored by Senators Joe Kyrillos and Sean Kean (both R- Monmouth) and co-sponsored by Senator Jennifer Beck (R- Monmouth/Mercer) will provide significant cost savings to municipalities by adjusting the appeals calendar. The bill also ensures fairness for taxpayers by requiring an annual assessment revision and standardizing the software used by assessors across the county for property valuation.

Senator Joe Kyrillos:

“This legislation improves what can often be a frustrating process for property tax payers, while strengthening the financial position of municipalities in Monmouth County. Under this demonstration program, Monmouth County taxpayers will be assured of an efficient and fair process by which their real property is valued- saving tax dollars and headaches in the process.”

Senators Gerald Cardinale, Kevin O’Toole, Kip Bateman, Jennifer Beck, and Joe Kyrillos, Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement regarding today’s confirmation hearing for Ron Gravino, nominated by Governor Christie to the New Jersey Turnpike Authority:

“Ron Gravino is an exceptionally qualified nominee for the Turnpike Authority who possesses both the experience in transportation policy and strong moral character the agency needs. He previously served for six years on the New Jersey Highway Authority, the Turnpike Authority’s predecessor. His nomination should pass the Senate overwhelmingly if our Democrat colleagues consider merit and merit alone.

Legislation sponsored by Senators Joe Kyrillos (R- Monmouth) and Fred Madden (D- Gloucester/Camden) expanding the Business Retention and Relocation Assistance Grant Program is now law. The bill passed both houses of the Legislature on January 6, 2010 and was signed by the Governor this afternoon.

“By working across the aisle and with the Governor, we have been able to expand a highly successful job creation program to more New Jersey employers,” said Kyrillos. “I have said time and again that improving our state’s business climate and competing with other states for jobs and economic activity is the most important thing we can do as elected officials.
