He also said that the people of Sussex County do not support the radical policies of the four members of Congress that some local Democrats showed up for.
He added: “They have made cruel anti-Semitic statements and are the authors of the most economically dangerous legislation in the history of our Republic – including the Green New Deal.
& # 39; I support my genuine opposition to the policies they promote. & # 39;

Howard Burrell, an African-American and the last democrat elected to the entire Sussex office, reported NJ.com as follows: & We don't drive people out of the city by rail.
& # 39; We believe in the rule of law, but as far as we can, we want the public to know that this is a great institution, that we don't endorse this kind of language. & # 39;
Jason Boehm, a graduate of Sussex County Community College, told the curators that he was disappointed in learning the & # 39; racist, Islamophobic and xenophobic memes that were brutally misogynistic & # 39; especially in the light of Scanlan & # 39 ; s role at college.
& # 39; I hope the board will do something about it. I'm not going to suggest anything, & Boehm would have said it through NJ.com
Chairman William Curcio claimed that a lawyer from the college would be consulted and added: "We will see exactly which means that we are available to us as a board."
The next meeting of the Executive Board will take place on 24 September.
