Willingboro Mayor Walker Excoriates MacArthur Hours Before Town Hall

Hours before a U.S. Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-3)-scheduled town hall in his hometown, Willingboro Mayor Chris Walker reproved MacArthur for the work he did to assist the repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

As a representative from the host municipality, Walker rejected the congressman’s invitation to introduce him, citing MacArthur’s work on “Trumpcare.” Instead, the mayor plans to address protesters – including the Burlington County Democratic Committee – outside the town hall event.

“Willingboro a hard-working, middle-class town,” Walker said. “Our families are trying to get by just like everyone else. Rep. MacArthur’s work on Trumpcare is not only out of step with this district, but it will have a direct, negative impact on our residents.”

The rally will take place at 6 p.m. at the JFK Center at Willingboro, 429 John F Kennedy Way, Willingboro.

Walker also noted MacArthur’s status as the richest member of the New Jersey Congressional delegation, with an estimated worth of about $30 million.

“When you’re part of that 1 percent and you make decisions that have an adverse affect on the 99 percent, then you can’t tell me you represent everyone,” Walker said.
