The Courier will be welcoming new columnist Joe Caliendo, chairman of the Middletown Township Democratic Party, as a columnist in its editorial pages in upcoming weeks. The veteran Democratic leader will become a permanent fixture in our pages, and has previously been a columnist for the Atlantic Highlands Herald. Mr. Caliendo will round out the columnists for the newspaper, sometimes characterized as "too Republican" by critics. Personally, I think the more points of view the better and so this is bound to be a lively addition. Be sure to look for Joe Caliendo's "Democrats Calling."
CAPTION: At the recent Crystal Beacon Awards, in Red Bank, Greater Long Branch NAACP President Lorenzo W. Dangler and Middletown Democratic Chairman Joseph Caliendo.
