Mahwah NJ,  Frank Pallotta, Republican candidate for New Jersey’s Fifth Congressional District, made the following statement in response to United States Senators Robert Menendez and Cory Booker’s announcement last week that local governments in Sussex and Warren Counties would not receive any money from the First Wave of Federal Funding from the COVID-19 Emergency Stimulus Package.  Under the Obama-era, pre-pandemic formula adopted by the Democrats, Congress failed to allocate any of the $82 million in grants to assist communities in New Jersey to Sussex and Warren Counties.
“It is unacceptable that any of our hard-hit communities would be left out under the stimulus bill. New Jersey sends more than its fair share to the federal government only to be given the short shrift during one of the most challenging times in our history. Josh Gottheimer was silent when Nancy Pelosi loaded the bill with far-left Green New Deal proposals and then came home empty-handed. We need a Congressman that will make all of District 5 a priority in a National emergency, instead of treating certain parts of the district as if it were an afterthought.”
