Sherrill says Webber is anti-woman

Says GOP congressional candidate sought to turn back the clock on women

By David Wildstein, September 17 2018 11:02 am

Democrat Mikie Sherrill is stepping up her pitch to rally women voters in New Jersey’s 11th district, criticizing GOP opponent Jay Webber for his record on women during his eleven years in the State Assembly.

Sherrill, a former U.S. Navy helicopter pilot and federal prosecutor, says Webber has spent the last decade voting against the interests of women — a point that Webber disputes.

“The women of New Jersey deserve a representative in Congress who will use their voice to stand up for equality and reproductive freedom,” said Sherrill. “It is clear that after a decade in Trenton, Assemblyman Webber has, time and again, used his voice and his vote to try and turn back the clock on women’s rights. We need look no further than his voting record to know Assemblyman Jay Webber is out of step with the women of this district.”

Sherrill specifically pointed to Webber’s votes against equal pay for equal work, funding for reproductive health services, protecting domestic abuse victims from gun violence, paid family leave, and support of female and minority-owned businesses.”

“This is a tired and false attack straight out of the Democrats’ 2008 playbook. Jay is a husband and father of four daughters, has been an advocate for women in the Legislature, and has stood up for women as an attorney when they were discriminated against in the workplace,” said Ronica Cleary, a spokesperson for the Webber campaign.  “Mikie Sherrill is playing Nancy Pelosi-style politics because she knows her support for tax hikes, being soft on immigration, and interest in Medicare for all are wildly out of touch with North Jersey values.”

  1. He voted AGAINST equal pay for equal work THIS YEAR. 118 voted for the bill, now NJ law and he was one if 2 against it. I would never want that kind of fringe zealot representing me.

  2. Well, if Webster says so…

    OK, thanks for clarifying that the New Jersey Globe is the political equivalent of PR Newswire. In the future, I will assume that all claims made by politicians on this website have not been verified”

    A pretty fair representation of the rationale for Webber and Carrols “No” vote can be read here…

    1. Thanks for quoting me out of context Phil, I mean “Jay”. Sorry that I had to block you on Facebook, but you’re a kook. The real problem with Jay Webber is that we only have his votes and his sparsely written statements on his website to judge him by. He has no message other than he’s a family guy who makes things up about his opponent, demands her to apologize, and then claims victory when he’s rightfully ignored. Jay is going to lose big. Those of you working to get him elected are in for a big shock on Nov. 6.

      1. Webster ol’ pal, last time I looked I was still alive and well on FB…despite your several attempts to sic FB authorities on me as a fraudulent profile. When I gave you and yours the horselaugh in the “People blocked by Webber group” associated topic, Elizabeth Juviler apparently felt compelled to remove evidence of your personal “kookiness” by deleting the topic…but screencaps are a wonderful thing, are they not? Horselaugh.

  3. Hi Emily Foye. I organized a vigil, not a rally, to support the kids and families who were separated by the US government. Its beyond heartbreaking to think that many still are . I’m sure you weren’t a fan of taking toddlers and babies and 5 year old kids away from their parents while in detention were you? Jeff Sessions said he was using the tactic as a deterrent which I found to be cruel beyond understanding. Also abolishing ICE is not my agenda either. What I really want us proper oversight and transparent policies for our immigration system. Obviously immigration is absolutely necessary to grow the economy, and it’s absolutely necessary to be a moral nation too but we have a lot of work to do. I’m also dying ot a socialist though I have been paying into social security since I was 17. You are right about one thing thoug, I live in Montclair. We love the architecture, the restraints, but mostly we love that our schools are specifically and internationally diverse and that we have choices in middle and Elementary school that don’t sacrifice that diversity. Snd I guess it’s nice that people who only want to live among their own pigments don’t choose it. Where do you live?

  5. Women really should not be allowed to run for Congress without the permission of their husband. I have asked Mikie Sherrill many times on Twitter to provide proof that she has her husband’s blessing to run for office, and so far she has chosen to ignore those questions. This alone shows that she is far too out of touch with NJ-11.

  6. Emily, clearly, you have never spoken to Elizabeth Juviler or know much about her. What shall I make up about you? Someone I’ve never met? Jay Webber’s voting record is just that– a RECORD for anyone to see. FACTS. He voted against equal pay for women in NJ this year. Making judgements on FACT is a much stronger argument than judgement based on hearsay, interpretation, and assumptions.

  7. Juviler felt compelled to delete a topic in her “People Blocked by Webber” page when I was able to ridicule their attempt to have my FB page removed as fraudulent by simply laughing at their attempts with a “Haha” like. Perhaps a “People Blocked by People Blocked by Jay Webber” page might be fun. Lol.
