Like many of you, I had the unfortunate task today of reading a particularly shameful and insulting public statement from Flemington Mayor Betsy Driver. (Provided below for reference)
While I don’t quite know where to begin, I do know where to end: Mayor Driver, you should resign and you should do it now. Your statement is antithetical to the principles of representative democracy. It is further proof that you do not represent the people of Flemington, the character of Hunterdon County, and the values of at least a part of the Democrat party. While I trust Republicans agree with me, I also call on Freeholder Candidate Heller and all current Flemington candidates to join me and many others in a bipartisan call for Mayor Driver's immediate resignation.
This election will soon pass and the business of governing will and should again become the focus of our elected officials. And painting over blue lines with orange monsters is no way to govern. It is time for Betsy Driver to resign.
