Hackensack NJ, in a statement on his friend Sheriff Mike Saudino endorsing Josh Gottheimer , ” Unfortunately, he is doing what he has to do to survive, placing partisan politics above friendship. Eight other New Jersey sheriffs have endorsed me and have recognized these four points.
– I was directly responsible for saving over $1 million in healthcare savings in the jail. In contract Josh Gottheimer wants to spend taxpayer money.
– It was my initiative, and upon my recommendation that the Sheriff’s department adopted the policy to use body cameras as the first in the state.
– Myself and members of the team spent thousands of hours merging the Sheriff and County police departments. A policy that Josh Gottheimer opposed in January of this year.
– I modernized the medical leave policy, saving tens of thousands of dollars of overtime hours.
By endorsing a democrat in this national election, Saudino wants to put the gavel back in the hands of Nancy Pelosi and liberal democrats. “
