BERNARDS TOWNSHIP, NJ - Sally Dunlap Booth and Joan Bannan Harris, Democratic candidates for Bernards Township Committee, issued the following statement in response to the recent events in Charlottesville Virginia.

As the Democratic candidates for Bernards Township Committee, we are saddened and deeply troubled by the recent events in Charlottesville. We believe the response by our elected officials and those seeking election must be strong and clear in abhorrence and condemnation. We believe elected officials have an obligation and moral responsibility to stand up against those who marched to promulgate white supremacy, neo-Nazism, and racism.

There should be no equivocation or injection of other issues that serve to minimize the loss of three lives and the harm caused to every person targeted by those who advocate hate, intolerance and bigotry.

Now is the time to come together and say enough is enough. We will not remain silent against those who believe one of us is less than another, for to do so would betray the principle our country was founded upon - equality for all. 

As a courageous young woman recently said, “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.”

We have been paying attention. We are outraged. We are speaking out. We will hold our elected officials accountable.
