Responding to Senate President Steve Sweeney hyper political decision to yank GOP bills from his chamber’s voting agenda, LD3 challenger Niki Trunk compared the incumbent to something less than an adult.
“Just recently Steve Sweeney proclaimed himself a ‘reformer,’ but his ‘actions yesterday were that of a spoiled child who takes his ball and goes home when he doesn’t get his way,” said Trunk in a Thursday afternoon press release:
This is why I am running. We need bipartisan leaders in Trenton who are focused on problem-solving, not petty nonsense that only perpetuates the negative reputation of people in elected office. Unfortunately, it’s the actions of people like Steve Sweeney who make that reputation well-earned. Hopefully Senator Sweeney will see how ridiculous he looks and relent, so these worthwhile measures can move forward and help people in their time of need.”
Trunk is seeking Sweeney seat alongside Assembly challengers and current South Jersey freeholders Bob Vanderslice and Larry Wallace.
