With Primary Win, McClintock and McAuliffe Are Ready to Run for Hunterdon County Freeholder in November

Flemington, NJ - Fresh off a primary win in the race for the Democratic nomination for Hunterdon County
Freeholder, Lynne McClintock and Cullen McAuliffe both look forward to sharing their vision of an ethical and responsive county government with voters on the road to Election Day in November.

Expanding on their campaign theme of bringing an approach of personal dedication to everyone
in the county, regardless of political party, Lynne McClintock noted, "We are truly humbled by the
support we received in the primary process, and now we are looking forward to highlighting the common
beliefs that we all share as Hunterdon County citizens. Our campaign will show that with a fresh
perspective and an open mind, county government can improve our daily lives without raising taxes."

McClintock and McAuliffe have been traveling the county and communicating the message that with all the economic troubles in Washington and Trenton, they will be dedicated to sticking up for Hunterdon County in the face of changing tax laws, unfunded mandates, and state and federal politicians who don't understand Hunterdon County's needs.

"Hunterdon County needs advocates ready to demand that we get our fair share of support from Washington and Trenton, and Lynne and I are certainly ready and able to take on that task for everyone throughout the county," said Cullen McAuliffe. "People who live in Hunterdon County have a unique perspective on what they want from government. We understand that perspective, and we will make sure we consistently listen to voters and conduct ourselves ethically, and with full transparency, if we are privileged enough to earn their vote in November," he added.

In the coming months, McClintock and McAuliffe will talk to voters directly, with an open mind, to hear their thoughts on the best way for the county to meet all people at their point of need. "It will be fun. There's nothing better than seeing our beautiful county change from summer to fall," said McClintock. "And meeting new people along the way," McAuliffe added.

Regarding the recent TAPinto article that quoted Raritan Township Committeeman Lou Reiner about a possible marijuana dispensary being located in his town, I crack up every time he opens his mouth and plants his pseudo-conservative foot in it.

Trump Border Policy Wrong, Counterproductive

To the editor:

As an educator and a child-advocate, I have been at the forefront of the immigration debate over the past decade. And while I have always advocated for a comprehensive solution, I never thought any opposing plans were morally wrong; until now!

The Trump policy of separating children from their parents at the border is morally wrong and counter-productive from a public ...

A Man of 'Deep Pockets, Sterling Character'

To the editor:

Initially the project was to find someone to ...
