Camden County GOP Candidates Respond To Lampitt And So-Called South Jersey ‘Leaders’

Why were these so-called leaders silent during the Barclay incident

CHERRY HILL – Responding to a statement released by Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt and “other South Jersey women leaders” Camden County Republican Party candidates for Assembly and Freeholder asked where the outrage was after former Assemblyman Arthur Barclay was arrested after a domestic violence incident, an incident he admitted happened.

Lampitt, according to a published news release, was joined by Assemblywoman Patricia Egan Jones and Camden County Freeholders Carmen Rodriguez and Susan Shin-Angulo. The purpose of their statement was to make negative remarks about U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump and U.S. Senate candidate Bob Hugin.

Republican candidate for Assembly in the fifth district, Nick Kush, said. “I’m a candidate for assembly because former Assemblyman Barclay resigned after admitting to a domestic violence incident. Not one of these women stood up against Barclay’s admitted act of domestic violence. One of the reasons I’m running is that I’m tired of the double standards of our elected officials, and this is a huge double standard.”

GOP freeholder candidate Keith Cybulski asked, “Where were Assemblywomen Lampitt and Egan Jones during the Barclay incident? Where were Freeholders Rodriguez and Shin-Angulo? Why have they never called out Bob Menendez for helping to get young women Visas to come into the country for Salomon Melgen?”

“I’ll tell you where they were,” Cybulski said. “They were waiting to be told what to say by their political bosses.”

“As a woman I am deeply offended these ‘South Jersey women leaders’ would use the accusations against Brett Kavanaugh to score cheap political points,” Republican Freeholder candidate Claire Gustafson said. “They refused to stand up for women after the Barclay arrest and, at the very least were complicit in helping those who tried to hide the fact Barclay had been arrested by keeping silent on the issue. It’s time for new leadership in Camden County, leadership that is willing to speak for all county residents and not just speak when a political boss says to.”

Camden County GOP Freeholder Candidates Welcome Mayor Bloomberg To Camden County

Cybulski and Gustafson suggest Mayor Bloomberg avoids county roads due to potholes

CHERRY HILL – Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is scheduled to headline a “$1,000 per individual guest” fundraiser in Camden County tonight. Camden County Republican Freeholder candidates Keith Cybulski and Claire Gustafson said it would be in poor taste not to “welcome” such an honored guest to the county.

“I would like to be among the first Republicans to welcome Mayor Bloomberg to Camden County,” Cybulski said. “I sincerely hope he enjoys his visit.

“I do have a little advice for Mayor Bloomberg. He should tell his driver to avoid county roads. I would hate to see him get a flat tire after hitting one of the crater-like potholes scattered across our county roads. If the driver ignores that advice and he does get a flat, it’s okay because there’s a 7-11 down the street from where the event is being held where Mayor Bloomberg can grab a Big Gulp in a plastic cup and drink through a plastic straw while he waits for a repair service.

“If Mayor Bloomberg decides to spend the night in the county, I suggest he wake up early and use one of our county parks,” said Gustafson. “Maybe he can figure out what the line item for ‘wow factor park improvements’ is in our county budget. It’s got to be a really special item given that the ‘wow factor park improvements’ line item is in addition to ‘general park improvements.’ I sincerely hope you enjoy your stay Mr. Mayor.”
