A slate of Democrats challenging the Camden County Democratic organization in the June 4 primary have endorsed the efforts of Gov. Phil Murphy’s task force to probe tax credits awarded by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority.
“Taxpaying residents of Camden County deserve a full, thorough, and independent investigation into the practices of the New Jersey EDA and the tax incentives it awarded.” said Brian Dilks-Brotman, who is seeking a Democratic county committee seat in Collingswood on the rival Democrats of Camden County slate.
The slate — which includes 93 candidates running for party and public office — says the want a comprehensive investigation by the task force and voiced their support of the New Jersey Working Families Alliance. The group is now headed by Sue Altman, a leader of the Democrats of Camden County effort.
“Recent news reports point to potentially serious violations of the public trust,” Dilks-Brotman said. “Such violations, if left uninvestigated, will irreparably erode people’s faith in our state and local governments’ ability to protect the interests of its citizens.”
