Calls for New Jersey County Commissioner’s Resignation After Organizing Trump Insurrection Bus Trip

1 min read

HUNTERDON COUNTY, NJ – The left today is calling for the resignation of Hunterdon County Commissioner Director Susan Solaway.  Last week, Soloway organized a bus trip to Washington D.C. to attend Trump’s “Save America Rally”.  That rally turned deadly after several hundred of the tens of thousands of attendees stormed the inside of the U.S. Capitol building.

A petition now has 2,421 signatures.

“After learning that Hunterdon County Commissioner Director Susan Soloway organized a bus to Washington, D.C. and attended the so-called “Save America Rally” on Wednesday, January 6, we are deeply disturbed by her participation in an event that was championed and attended by white supremacy groups, especially as someone who makes county level decisions about our tax dollars,” the petition states. “We recognize that attending the rally is protected under our First Amendment as a right to free speech. However, we also note that the focus of the rally undermines the democratic principles on which our U.S. and State Constitutions are based. It is clear that Commissioner Soloway either does not believe in the validity of any vote with an outcome she does not like, or does not have faith in the due process established by the government and upheld as legitimate in 60 lawsuits. In either case, she chose to attend the rally knowing that the President of the United States refused to accept the results of the election and to commit to a peaceful transfer of power. All of this is unacceptable in an elected official.”

The petition calls upon Commissioner Soloway to denounce white supremacy and resign from the Hunterdon County New Jersey Board of County Commissioners.

“She swore to uphold both the US and NJ constitutions. Attending a demonstration (with a high likelihood of becoming violent) to protest certified election results is unacceptable and continues to feed the conspiracy theory narrative,” said petition signer Kiersten Robbins.

In Ocean County, Ocean County GOP Chairman Frank Holman has been under fire from both sides of the aisle after he lead this summer’s massive Barnegat Bay boat parade for Trump and last week organized his own bus trip to D.C.  After the rally, Holman condemned President Trump. The left criticizes Holman for his bus trip and the right is now criticizing Holman for backing down from Trump. You can read that story here.
