NJEA Money
A significant chunk of the $5.7 million spent on the past election by the NJEA’s Garden State Forward super PAC came from membership dues. “Many members were under the impression that the money spent on the race was only from voluntary donations,” found NJTV’s Leah Mishkin.

Revel Beach
A New York-based private equity firm says it is under contract to buy a Boardwalk-fronting site next to the casino formerly known as the Revel, according to a press release from the company. The plan – dubbed “The Metropolitan at Revel Beach” – is to build a 40- to 50-story condo project with restaurant and retail space. The company is also interested in buying the Revel. “We are working between our counsel and Mr. Straub’s to come to a conclusion on the Revel that we are still feverishly excited about. The Metropolitan project will only enhance our position and objectives for the Revel Beach side of the Boardwalk,” said Jeffery Keating, Co-Chairman of Keating and Associates, in a (feverishly?) emailed statement.
