October 2021

A regular membership  meeting of the Ocean Grove Homeowners Association (OGHOA) was held on Saturday, October 23, 2021 at 10:00 am in the Camp Meeting Community Room, 28 Pilgrim Pathway, Ocean Grove, and via Zoom.

The meeting was called to order by Richard Williams, President, at 10:00 am. Richard welcomed everyone and began the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance.


  • The next Township Meetings will be Monday November 8th and Monday November 22nd
  • Our November 27th HOA Meeting Guest Speaker will be Nicole Nappi, Executive Director of the Jersey Arts Center
  • A meeting of the OGHOA Green Committee will be held on November 17th

Candidates Forum II:

This meeting was scheduled to have three very important Candidates Forums:

  • Candidates for NJ State Senator
  • Candidates for NJ State Assembly
  • Candidates for Neptune Township Committee

However for complex and frustrating reasons, all Republican candidates declined to attend, and in addition to no Republican candidates for the Township Committee, both Democratic candidates also declined to attend.

We ended up with a very thoughtful forum with 3 Democratic Candidates sharing their thoughts on numerous campaign issues and fielding questions from the audience:

  • Vin Gopal – Democratic Candidate for NJ State Senate
  • Eric Houghtaling and Joanne Downey, Democratic Candidates for the NJ State Assembly

There was no Business Meeting

The meeting adjourned at 11:10 am. Respectfully submitted, Theresa R. Checki, OGHOA Secretary
