FREEHOLD - A resolution concerning the censure of Monmouth County Freeholder John Curley, and another aimed at reinforcing County policies regarding workplace discrimination and harassment, form the entire agenda for a special Board meeting, planned for this Friday afternoon.

Monmouth County Freeholder Director John Curley

Prior to the 4 PM public meeting in the Hall of Records, Board members conduct an executive session to discuss "personnel and potential litigation," according to information issued by Clerk of the Board Marion Masnick.

The actions are predicated by a lengthy, and sealed, investigation of sexual harassment allegations, which his attorney flatly discredits, and which led to actions that prompted Curley to file a federal lawsuit, according to the Asbury Park Press.

Discussions stemming from the filing reportedly led to easing Board-imposed restrictions on access to the building and staff for Curley.

Curley, entering the final year of his third term, would be up for re-election to the all-Republican board in 2018. He served as Director in 2012, and Deputy Director in 2011.

A request for comment from Curley's attorney has not elicited a response.
