The event is scheduled for Saturday, November 4th, at the Holiday Inn in Clinton, NJ.  Registration begins at 8:30AM, with a brief County Committee meeting starting at 9:00AM.  A continental breakfast will be served. 

Then, get prepared for some fun and excitement with the GOTV (Get Out The Vote) Pep-Rally. There will be candidates, guest speakers and pep-rally music ramping up the spirit and energy for this important election. 

 

We have an opportunity to have a Democratic Governor and end the Christie regime 

We have an opportunity to have Democratic  State Senate and Assembly Representatives

We have an opportunity to have a Democratic Hunterdon County Freeholder

We have an opportunity to have representation on our local town council or committee

But we risk losing these opportunities if we don't help our candidates campaign.  So let's get door knocking and phone banking. Together we can make this happen.

HCDC Statement on Negative Ad Attacks

HCDC Chairwoman Arlene Quinones Perez has issued an official statement on behalf of the Hunterdon County Democratic Committee regarding the negative ad attacks against Gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy and his position on Sanctuary Cities.

During the Gubernatorial debate on October 10th, Ambassador Murphy stated that he would not only be in favor of NJ hosting Sanctuary Cities, he would also call for NJ to become the first Sanctuary State. 

The GOP contender, Kim Guadagno, has since invoked upon a negative ad campaign and is insinuating that Phil Murphy "has the backs of criminals", specifically convicted murderer Jose Carranza. This could not be further from the truth and demonstrates that  her character is much like that of her current boss, and our soon to be our ex- Governor, Chris Christie.

The following is a statement from Chairwoman Perez regarding the negative - and misleading -  ad attacks against Ambassador Murphy.

"The only thing too dangerous for NJ would be if Kim Guadagno gets elected. Her spin on Phil Murphy’s Sanctuary City Plans exemplify how dishonest and corrupt she really is. To insinuate that Phil Murphy has criminals’ backs is outlandish. Referring to what was stated on Tuesday’s debate in regards to illegal alien, Jose Carranza, who was convicted of killing 3 people in a Newark schoolyard - Murphy clearly stated in the debate that the crimes were 'heinous' and that those responsible should be prosecuted 'to the fullest extent of the law.' As a County Chair and as a Latina, I am personally offended by her divisive comments. We do not need another divisive politician in New Jersey politics - we have enough of that at the national level."

 

A debate between our Democratic Lieutenant Governor Candidate Sheila Oliver and her opponent is set for October 16th. The 2nd Gubernatorial debate between Murphy and Guadagno is scheduled for Wednesday, October 18th at 7pm and can be viewed on CBS Channel 2 out of NY.
