BERKELEY TOWNSHIP, NJ – Since taking power of the GOP in 2009, millionaire pay to play accountant Frank Holman has seen the Republican party in Ocean County fall apart from infighting, political scandals, pay to play and patronage job controversies. This month, Bayville Councilwoman Judith Noonan announced she has seen enough and is resigning from her position in Berkeley Township.
Berkeley Township Republicans are coming off a strong November 2019 election where Mayor Carmen Amato and his slate dominated the Democrats by a nearly 3 to 1 vote margin. She made the announcement at the final town council meeting this July.
“Unfortunately, I am resigning due to many unsatisfying factors which have caused me to become increasingly disappointed with unprincipled political decisions over the past several months,” Noonan said. ” The reason I became a Councilwoman was to serve my constituents and to make the lives of the people of Berkeley Township better. I can no longer be a part of the hiring practices, excessive spending, and the unethical political behavior. This unprofessional conduct I can no longer tolerate.”
The resigning councilwoman said she doesn’t see eye to eye on many issues with her Republican colleagues in government.
Noonan was praised by her fellow council members and members of the public for her years of service to the community of Berkeley Township.
