Cumberland County Freeholder Jack Surrency today released the following statement regarding the
outcome of the July 7 Democratic Primary Election:
“I would like to congratulate my colleagues Carol Musso and George Catellini on their win and a hard fought campaign.
“More importantly, I want to congratulate and recognize Donna M. Pearson on her historic win, where she overcame giant-size hurdles on her way to victory. Her commitment, passion, and dedication to Cumberland County showed throughout this entire campaign. Donna, you made us proud and I look forward to campaigning with you.
“You can’t talk about making history without mentioning the candidacy of Amy Kennedy. From day one, Amy has displayed class, conviction, and maintained a strong spirit despite facing overwhelming adversity. Cumberland County needs Amy Kennedy in Washington, D.C., and we’re going to make sure that happens.
“For me, this has been an exhausting six months. I’m going to refuel, recharge, and utilize my last six months left in office to continue my fight on corrections’ reforms, COVID, micro-loans, access to recreation and public transportation, and putting an end to contracts that delegitimize our county.
“Whether as a school board member, councilman, freeholder or private citizen, a title doesn’t define my work, I do. And there’s still much work to do; we can do more. Thank you.”
