Response to Freeholder Walsh's Divisive Statement on School Funding

Statement from Somerset County Democratic Committee Chairwoman Peg Schaffer

“I was stunned to see Freeholder Pat Walsh’s statement on the Hillsborough school referendum that she opposes the state’s proposal to increase aid to Somerset County schools by eleven percent. School districts in twenty towns will see increases, including her home town of Green Brook, but Walsh chose to be negative and divisive instead of representing families throughout the county.

Even more egregious was Walsh’s attack on immigrants, blaming without evidence these hardworking families for the referendum being voted down. Like Donald Trump, Walsh wants to hide her record of raising taxes while cutting services behind attacks on immigrants.”
