Ghee Leaps into Webber-Sherrill Scrum: ‘Pou Should Apologize’

Unwilling to stand on the sidelines as the Sherrill and Webber forces collide, Assemblyman Jay Webber’s (R-26) CD11 Republican Primary opponent today leaped to Webber’s defense.
“Has our political discourse gotten so bad, that we need to drag the children of candidates into political statements about the critical issues impacting our community?” said Ghee, referring to a statement issued by state Senator Nellie Pou (D-35), a backer of CD11 Democratic candidate Mikie Sherrill.
“It’s 2018 and we should all be able to agree on three simple concepts:  political corruption is bad and should be repudiated by everyone, regardless of party; everyone deserves equal pay for equal work and government has a responsibility to ensure that; and the family of a candidate for public office is off limits, especially their children.
“This campaign should not be about scoring cheap political points, rather it should be about putting the people we are seeking to serve above partisan politics,” Ghee added. “We need leaders who are dedicated to serving a cause greater than themselves or their party, because the issues at stake in this election are too great to be mired in soundbites and cheap petty politics. Senator Pou owes an immediate and unequivocal apology to the Webber’s for dragging their children into this campaign.”

    For the last 8 years democratic school districts connected to Chris Christie have been robbing New Jersey Taxpayers blind. Districts in Morris have not seen increases and many have seen cuts in funding. Where has Jay Webber been? If he cannot stand up for Morris County schools how can we trust him in Washington. Check out the presentation I was asked to create regarding Union City and the rest of the state.…/12vFFOnse0AgSpx2…/view

      What a crock of shit there Joe. Democrats have controlled the Assembly and Senate for years. Many of the requirements as to school spending come from Federal regulations. I note you don’t point to any specific votes of Webber on any specific legislation. Just do what trolls do and use ad hominem invective.

        Follow the numbers Rich. Do a little research and you will see Christie rewarded certain democrats with our money to push his agenda. What did Webber do to protect Morris County? Nothing. Many of the requirements for school funding do not come from the feds, most are state mandated and court rulings from the NJSC. Please explain how one district with 13,000 students gets 190 million in state aid while just about every district in Morris County either saw cuts or no increase. Because people like Webber were to afraid to stand up to the big bully Christie and allowed Christie to make back room deals with the Democrats bosses like Stack, Joe D, Norcross.
