Chairman Sean Earlen issued the following statement in regards to the use of non-disclosure agreements in Republican campaigns:
“Female candidates, party leaders, campaign staff and volunteers make our party better and stronger. In return, these women deserve to feel safe and should never have to sign away that right.
Today I join the NJGOP and Chairman Doug Steinhardt in banning the use of non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) in our campaigns, which could prevent women from reporting or publicly sharing accounts of sexual harassment or abuse. This behavior should never be tolerated and should always be called out and held to account.
This ban would also extend to any candidates outside of the Burlington County Republican Committee seeking our endorsement. Women should never be silenced and perpetrators protected in the name of political expediency.”
– Sean Earlen, Burlington County Republican Committee Chairman
