A group of Union County Democrats say that Colleen Mahr used their images in a campaign video without permission.
Freeholders Christopher Hudak and Alexander Mirabella and the former Mayor of Scotch Plains, Kevin Glover, want Mahr to take them out of a video urging county committee members to support her for Democratic Chairman.
“Mahr did not get our authorization to use our images in her video. Her actions placing our images in her video creates the misperception that we are endorsing her candidacy for UCDC Chair. We are not. We are supporting Nick Scutari for Chair, and we call upon her and her campaign to immediately remove our images,” the three said.
Yesterday, Kimberly Nix, a county committeewoman from Scotch Plains, complained that Mahr used her image in a piece of literature without her permission.
Our Union County Democratic Chair has to be someone who has earned people’s trust. But if this is any indication of what kind of chair she will be, she has not earned mine,” Nix said. “Given Ms. Mahr’s misleading campaign and blatant disregard to the Democratic Committee’s bylaws, we think everyone should reconsider their support. These are not our Democratic values.”
