Criticism of Jay Webber’s vote against pay equality on Monday is now on day three, with Woodland Park Mayor Keith Kazmark hammering the GOP congressional candidate for being one of two legislators to vote against the measure.
“Jay Webber is completely out of touch with the working families of the 11th District. His vote on Monday and comments last night make that abundantly clear,” said Kazmark, a Democrat who comes from the Passaic County portion of New Jersey’s 11th congressional district. “The last thing we need in Washington is another extremist, an extremist like Jay Webber.”
Kazmark also lambasted Webber for his attacks on two opponents who served in the military: Democrat Mikie Sherrill, a former Navy helicopter pilot, and Antony Ghee, who currently serves as a major in the U.S. Army Reserve.
“His campaign of baseless assumptions and political attacks against Mikie Sherrill and even his primary opponent Tony Ghee, both of whom took an oath to defend and protect this country, is designed to deflect from his right-wing extremist voting record,” Kazmark said. While Assemblyman Webber spends his campaign attacking, he fails to offer any ideas, proposals or solutions. He only offers more of what we see today in Washington DC — deep divides, divisiveness and contempt.”
Kazmark, who explored running for this congressional seat before Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen announced his retirements, argues that Webber “makes no attempt to bring people together, no attempt to compromise and no attempt to help improve the lives of the people here in New Jersey.”
“Jay Webber offers no path forward for our country and his voting record continues to be completely out of touch with the people he wants to represent,” said Kazmark.
