Hoffman Strikes Back at Trump
Madelyn Hoffman, NJ Green Party candidate for U.S. Senate today responded to President Donald Trump’s threats to withhold federal funding from schools that do not reopen.
“In April and May – as parents across the state feared the potential of Governor Murphy – who at the time was straddling the fence on the issue – sending students, faculty and staff back into the brick and mortar schools, I was one of the earliest voices, even before NJEA announced its concerns, to call for the schools to NOT reopen. This is a demand which has been followed to this day. As I launch my drive to capture the U.S. Senate seat – I again am calling upon Governor Murphy – to NOT reverse the decision to reopen, and ignore Donald Trump’s threats to cut off federal funding to schools that do not. At least, at this point, let’s wait and see if NJ is going to have a new uptick in COVID-19 cases!
“I am not doing this as much as a U.S. Senate candidate – but as a concerned NJ resident about whether we can protect our children and families as well as teachers and workers – and I ask Senator Cory Booker to join me in this call.”
