Joseph Hornick 22 hours ago . I have Zero Respect for the City of Long Branch! Once the Mayor & some officials are removed, the City will be a better place! But alot of damage has been done! So the better part of Long Branch will probably never come back. Wait for the Wave to hit Pier Village! And it won't be green! It will be the Payback for stealing land! Enjoy it while you can. The Time is near! And if the power should go out in Long Branch for a week again! You will know the Mayor won't be showering! The Mayor knew zero about JCP&L's lack of upgrades, that has been going on for many years before the Sandy storm. Only after the fact! The Mayor makes a big deal about JCP&L! The way I look at this is: If the Mayor showered & stayed clean! He may have been aware of JCP&L's many problems way before this Sandy Storm! Even if the shower was used! It still stinks!
