In A Show Of Bi-Partisanship, Republican Mayor Don Purdy & Democratic Mayor Jesse Tweedle Give Joint Endorsement

Newark, NJ – Today, Galloway Township’s Republican Mayor Don Purdy and Pleasantville’s Democratic Mayor Jesse Tweedle came together to give a dual endorsement to Trenton’s Bad Bet joining New Jersey residents voting no on Question One next Tuesday.

“The proposed casino expansion ballot question has brought together Republicans and Democrats; progressives and conservatives; organized labor and businesses, because we all recognize how detrimental this would be to our region and to the entire state. We stand shoulder to shoulder with each other to protect New Jersey’s working families and defeat Question One,” said Purdy.

Opposition to the referendum has created a bridge across party lines due to concerns over the impact gaming expansion would have local constituencies.

“Casino expansion would devastate our regional economy, increase unemployment and accelerate home foreclosures for thousands of hardworking families across South Jersey,” said Tweedle. “We need to send a message on Election Day that we will not allow a small group of out-of-state billionaires to dictate what is best for the citizens of New Jersey. I stand with the dozens of community leaders and elected officials across the state in voting no on Question One.”
