Manalapan Committeeman Andrew Lucas Resigns

The resignation was announced on Monday.

Manalapan Township Committeeman Andrew Lucas has resigned from his position, according to a press release issued by the Township Committee Monday morning. Lucas has served on the Township Committee for eight years. 

The reason for the resignation was not provided by the Township Committee and Lucas has not responded to Patch for comment. 

Stephen McEnery, the Republican Municipal Chairperson, will soon be calling a meeting of the Manalapan's County Committee to select a new Committee person to fill the vacant seat, the release said. 

Lucas' term was set to expire in December.

I applaud Mr. Lucas decision. However, the actions which compelled his decision to resign this did not happen in a vacuum. They were enabled by the conduct of the Township Committee and the Board of Freeholders - which included current Assemblyman Bob Clifton. Maybe Lucas never heard Kennedy's statement "Ask not what your county can do for you, ask what you can do for you country." First Lucas decided not to run for re-election. Now he is resigning. Actually, first Lucas gamed the system to get $1.196 of taxpayer moneys for the development rights to his farm. We need to elect Dr. Ayesha Chaudhary, David Goldstein and Ryan Urgo to the Township Committee (see RestoreManalapan.com), Brian Froelich and Larry Luttrell to the Board of Freeholders, Ray Dothard (DothardForNJ.com) to the State Senate and me to the General Assembly (FurmanForNewJersey.com).

I think we need to elect people who aren't politicians for office. Oh silly me.......those are the only people who run for office.

If you think this guy will walk away with a slap on the hand you understand govt today the good old boy,s club! Today if you are not a Crook you can,t run for office .It,s the first question.This is nothing compared to all of the other things they got away with ! How about buying a very expensive emergency vehicle that must be stored indoors and new we had no building to house it so a construction job was needed asap before it was dropped off. Tip of a huge iceberg or a goldberg as long it is not a Lipshit(joke).(2) The product that was used to finish the new soccer field, shredded car tires . It lasts a long time,very little to care for but just one very little set back!When the sun shines at it best and its warmer a gas is released that is not good for anyone or any thing!Our most important gift our kids are breathing it .EVERY OTHER SCHOOL IN OUR COUNTRY,THE U.S.A. HAS REMOVED IT FROM BECAUSE OF ITS HARM FULL GAS . IT KILLS AND DESTROY,S STUFF NOT TO WORRY OUR MANALAPAN CAN PAY TO REMOVE IT . You can not say we did not know its very easy too learn not rocket sience but it is a money maker. Sorry for the bad grammer. but i print only facts!
