The Toms River GOP Released an ad – stating why residents should vote for them.
Instead of reasons such as: ‘bringing people together’, or ‘bridging the gap,’ they state:

Its essentially saying ‘ keep the jews out – vote for me’

At a time where there is so much hate, candidates should focus on bringing people together and run a positive campaign. Negative rhetoric only furthers the divide in our community.
As the Township’s resolution stated “We condemn any use of freedom of speech that will promote hatred, bigotry, and prejudice that will divide our community and the peace and goodwill amongst our residents”
