JACKSON-Progressive Democrat Josh Welle is on a mission to combat the “racists” in the fourth congressional district of New Jersey. Those racists he says are the of residents Jackson and Howell Townships. Tonight, he is coming to confront those he has called out in a public town hall meeting.
Welle had left no context as to why he singled out residents of four Central Jersey towns as racists, but tonight he will be in Jackson Township holding a town hall at the AmVets post #2, located on Route 571.
“I want to move this district forward,” Welle said. “I want to fight against racism and discrimination in this district.”
Today, we reached out to the Welle campaign for clarification on his comments, but have yet to receive a reply.
“But as you go to Howell and Jackson and Allentown and Millstone, and people who voted for Chris Smith for 37 years,” he said. “They’re not there yet.”
The event will run from 6:30 to 8pm tonight at Amvets Post #002 JACKSON NJ 1290 Toms River Road Jackson, NJ 08527. It is open to the public.
