For immediate release:

It's nice that a sitting US Senator visits Scotch Plains. And while Senator Booker can command a lot of attention, what he can't do is make Lou Beckerman's voting record disappear. The Senator isn't going to prevent next years sewer rate hike. The Senator isn't going to fix the SID. The Senator isn't going to bring responsible funding for the Library. The Senator isn't going to get back the money wasted on new township attorneys who are billing the town 50% more.

This election will be decided where it was started, which is on the issues facing Scotch Plains voters. Voters will elect Llewellyn Jones because he will bring the financial leadership Scotch Plains taxpayers need.
