FALLOUT: Statement From The United For Perth Amboy Campaign On Billy Delgado’s Misleading Claims

Press Release 9/21/12—

PERTH AMBOY – Today, the United for Amboy campaign released the following statement in response to Billy Delgado’s claims that he informed the campaign three weeks ago that his consultant James Devine was to have no contact with Mayor Wilda Diaz:

“Mr. Delgado never contacted our campaign three weeks ago to let us know that Mr. Devine was to have no contact with Mayor Diaz. If he had, we call on him to produce evidence to that effect. Furthermore, Mr. Devine contacted the mayor with additional harassing emails as recently as two weeks ago.

“The bottom line is this: Billy Delgado’s campaign consultant made offensive, derogatory remarks towards Mayor Diaz which were roundly condemned by some of the highest ranking Democrats in the state. Delgado has stood by his consultant and by his remarks. If that is the kind of person he would choose to surround himself with now, just imagine what he would do as mayor. Perth Amboy needs honest, ethical leadership in City Hall, not Billy Delgado’s brand of destructive politics.”
