Marlboro Mayor Jonathan Hornik says that two alleged bias incidents in his Township are a product of a post-election environment that allows people “with hate in their heart” to express that hatred in ways that are not appropriate.
Hornik said that since Election Day, a sidewalk on Ryan Road has been vandalized with a swastika and that a customer of the Costco on Texas Road was questioned by another customer about his religion. “Are you a muslim?” the man was asked twice in a firm manner, according to a facebook post that the mayor referenced.
Both incidents are being investigate by the Marlboro Police Department.
In a letter to the Marlboro Community posted on facebook, Hornik celebrated the religious and ethic diversity of Marlboro and expressed his sadness and disappointment in recent incidents demonstrating “hate based on this same diversity.”Art Gallagher | Filed under: Donald Trump, Jon Hornik, Monmouth County News | Tags: Bias crime, Cheri Jacobus, Corey Lewadowski, Donald Trump, Jon Hornik, Larocca Horinik Rosen Greenberg and Blaha, Marlboro, Marlboro hate crimes, Marlboro Mayor Jon Hornik, Monmouth County News, President Elect Donald J.
