EAST BRUNSWICK – Republican State Senate candidate David Stahl and State Assembly candidates Rob Bengivenga and Lisa Goldhamer announced endorsements from 23 middle-class Democrats from across the 18th Legislative District and formed an advisory committee dedicated to bringing bi-partisan solutions to Trenton.
“Voters are tired of the same stale political games in Trenton,” said Stah, who is the mayor of East Brunswick. “While Trenton politicians focus on issues that divide the party, we focused locally on uniting both parties behind an agenda to make East Brunswick more affordable and create good paying jobs. I changed parties to ensure that I can provide the independent leadership necessary to bridge the party divide in Trenton.”
“[Democratic Assemblyman] Barnes and Diegnan have proven that they are incapable of working with Governor Christie to move New Jersey in the right direction,” said Bengivenga, a councilman in South Plainfield. “We are running to ensure that voters of all political persuasions get the property tax relief and jobs they deserve. The problems our state faces are bigger than two parties and it’s time for politicians in Trenton to realize that.”
“While over 156,000 working-class residents like me lost our jobs, Barnes and Diegnan were voting to increase our taxes,” said Goldhamer, a mother of two and long-time Edison resident. “They created the mess in Trenton and refuse to work across the aisle to clean it up. Our team is ready to shake up Trenton and with the support of Democrats, Republicans and Independent voters across our district, we will end political gridlock and provide New Jersey with a voice of reason in Trenton.”
