Senator Robert Singer said the Murphy administration needs to do a better job of listening to and working with local leaders in shore communities who have expressed serious concerns about the impact of pop-up parties on public safety.

“The Jersey Shore has always been a welcoming place for visitors, but many small towns are not equipped to handle thousands of teenagers who suddenly pour off trains and flood their streets, boardwalks, and commercial districts for pop-up parties organized on social media,” Singer (R-30) said. “We saw what happened in Long Branch a few weeks ago when 5,000 teens and young adults suddenly showed up in Pier Village. People were jumping on cars, fighting, and openly smoking pot and drinking in public. The local police had an extremely difficult time trying to restore order. Most shore towns looked at what happened in Long Branch and are hoping they’re not next, but hope isn’t a plan. That’s why they’re looking for help and guidance from the Murphy administration that so far has not been forthcoming.”

My legislation will increase Medicaid reimbursement for the critical services that partial care programs provide to some of New Jersey’s most vulnerable residents.”

As Jersey Shore towns face the likelihood of more pop-up “parties” like the one Saturday that lured more than 5,000 raucous young adults to Long Branch forcing businesses to close and municipal officials to declare a 9 p.m. curfew, Senator Joe Pennacchio and Senator Robert Singer said legislation they introduced last summer may hold the key to preserving the summer season.

After an early summer pop-up mob last June, Pennacchio and Singer introduced a bill that would expand the legal definition of “riot,” and increase penalties for crimes committed during a riot.

“Our bill would provide communities and law enforcement with the tools necessary to combat these organized mobs,” said Pennacchio (R-26). “If it was passed a year ago, maybe we wouldn’t be worrying about the next ‘event’ that could erupt in violence, property damage and business interruption during the crucial summer season.

“This weekend’s incident followed the same script we saw last summer, when hordes of out-of-control teenagers swarmed to the shore,” said Singer (R-30). “This is not a case of getting some people together and going to the shore, it’s an orchestrated criminal act. These are organized incidents, promoted with flyers and posts all over social media calling for people to ‘bring your booze, bring you marijuana, and let’s go to Long Branch.’

Senator Robert Singer said Manhattan’s Museum of Jewish Heritage was wrong to cancel a planned Jewish Leadership Conference event after the museum learned that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was an invited speaker.

“It’s absolutely appalling that Governor DeSantis, who has been among our nation’s greatest defenders of Jewish families, has been cancelled by the Museum of Jewish Heritage in Manhattan,” said Singer (R-Ocean). “When New York City did nothing to address rampant violence against Jews on the streets, DeSantis welcomed a flood of Jewish families that moved to Florida seeking safety. An institution whose mission is to remember the Holocaust should welcome a leader who strongly protects people of the Jewish faith who are under assault today.”

Under Singer’s bill, S-85, municipalities with more than 100,000 residents would be authorized to appoint as many as five alternate deputy registrars to ease the workload of filing vital documents.
