Art Haney, the State Senate candidate in the 12th legislative district aligned with Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli’s gubernatorial campaign, indicates that he is a Middlesex County Freeholder in his campaign literature.
Haney was a Freeholder in the 1990’s.
Campaign workers distributed Haney’s cards, along with Ciattarelli propaganda, to Republican voters’ homes in Matawan on Saturday.
The 12th district includes Allentown, Englishtown, Manalapan, Matawan, Millstone, Roosevelt and Upper Freehold in Monmouth County; Old Bridge in Middlesex County; Jackson and Plumsted in Ocean County and the Burlington County towns of Chesterfield, New Hanover, North Hanover, and Wrightstown.
Reached on the phone and asked to explain his bio on the campaign literature, Haney refused to say if he proofed or approved the card before it was printed. He did say, “Yes. I was a Middlesex County Freeholder. You know that. What is the issue?”Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2017 Elections, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, Old Bridge | Tags: 12th Legislative District, 2017 GOP primary, Art Haney, Burlington County GOP, Hinky Art Haney, Hinky Haney, Jack Ciattarelli, Josh Foote, Middlesex County GOP, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, Old Bridge Republicans, Senator Sam Thompson | 1 Comment »
