Where is Bob? Island Heights!

Many people thought it was odd that we are calling out Senator Singer on his residency. Many people felt that the way that we did it was even stranger. I agree. But sometimes you have to do things in an unconventional way when all other conventional methods fail.

Voter registration records are publicly available from the State of NJ. If you run for office you must file certified statements as to your address. For both Bob lists 1463 Massachusetts Avenue in Lakewood. His wife also is registered to vote at that Lakewood address. You can look up me and my Husband as well. We both reside in Howell and are registered at the home that we actually live in. You can also drive by the house and see our cars there and our lackluster landscaping.

The NJ Constitution provides: "No person shall be a member of the Senate who shall not have attained the age of thirty years, and have been a citizen and resident of the State for four years, and of the district for which he shall be elected one year, next before his election."

And there is case law on this, one for example, challenging Carl Lewis from being eligible to run because he was not a resident of the State for 4 years. The point is that these rules are not a game and they are not a joke. If you are a seated, incumbent, Senator, you are charged with a greater knowledge of the law. In Singer's own words, "There is a certain respect you have to have to run for office." In my opinion Singer does not have that respect for our Constitution. He is renting an address for purposes of being able to claim that he is a resident of Lakewood and it is quite clear that no one is residing at that address.

To be clear, I have no faith that anyone will take any action. The head of every agency in Ocean County that would be responsible to take issue with Singer, is, you guessed it, affiliated with his party. The Democrats have out right refused to pursue this because they don't believe that challenges like this are effective.

I have specifically asked Bob in writing and in person to tell the truth about where he resides. He outright lied when we were at the APP last week for an interview. He refused to specifically answer the question as to whether he lived at the Massachusetts Avenue address. Rather he just claimed that he has two homes. Well, I think you can see the difference in the two homes. One is literally a shell. The other is loved and lived in.

The question you have to ask is whether or not our public servants should lie and cheat about something as basic as where they live? If they are lying about residency how can we trust them on bigger issue? If he doesn't live in the district how can he understand the day to day issues we face. Bob thinks I'm mean to him. Better to be mean than a liar.
