Cumberland GOP Candidates Call Out Democrats Over Misleading Ad
Democrats had their chances and failed. It’s time for new leadership
VINELAND – Republican candidate for Cumberland County Surrogate Kim Codispoti and Freeholder candidates, Arvene Kilby Hays and Frank Spatola, Jr, called a new commercial for the Cumberland County Democrats is misleading.
According to the 30 second spot, posted on the Cumberland County Democrats Facebook page, Joe Derella, Jim Quinn and Doug Rainear are all things, to all people.
“Watching that ad one would think the Surrogate is out filling potholes. You’d have better luck with Domino’s ‘Paving for Pizza’ program,” Kim Codispoti said. “Obviously, that will never happen, Doug Rainear couldn’t get the roads paved when he was a freeholder and it’s not his job as Surrogate. It’s time for a new County Surrogate, with new ideas that will make it easier for those needing the Surrogate’s services to be served.”
Arvene Kilby Hays added, “To brag about creating hundreds of new jobs in a commercial is a stretch. The truth is anyone driving through the county and seeing all the boarded-up businesses knows that under control of the Democrats Cumberland County has seen a net loss of jobs.”
“They talk about improving county services and a commitment to our youth in this ad,” Frank Spatola, Jr. said. “We agree, we must be committed to our youth and a great place to start would be the development of a county parks system, something that will benefit all the residents of Cumberland County. As to improving services, the Democrats had their chances and failed. Electing Kim Codispoti Surrogate, Arvene Kilby Hays and I as freeholders will lead to an immediate improvement.”
