WEST DEPTFORD – Saying voters deserve an unscripted discussion on key issues like property taxes, job creation, and education between candidates running for high office, Republican State Senate challenger Niki Trunk made a novel offer to Senate President Steve Sweeney today, inviting him to campaign door-to-door with her in Sweeney’s hometown of West Deptford.
“I am not a conventional candidate and have no interest in running a conventional campaign,” said Trunk. “Instead of letting this race be decided by who has more access to special interest campaign money, I am asking Senator Sweeney to leave his political handlers at home and join me knocking on the doors of real voters and engaging them in an unscripted discussion about the issues that matter most to them and their families. Voters deserve an opportunity to see us side-by-side, so why not right on their door steps?”
Trunk, who graduated from Trenton State College in 1996 followed by Temple University’s Fox School of Business and Beasley School of Law would be the first woman ever elected to the Senate south of Burlington County.
“I just graduated college when Steve Sweeney began his long career in politics,” said Trunk, who in her career took on corporate greed and then helped tackle waste, fraud and abuse as Deputy Chief of Staff for the State Comptroller’s Office. “And I am running against him now because after fifteen years of Steve Sweeney, South Jersey is a far more expensive place to live, jobs are much harder to find, and people have a lower opinion of government than they ever have before. I am eager to challenge him on that record, while outlining my own positive vision for the future of South Jersey and our entire State.”
