PETERSBURG – At Upper Township Committee’s Jan. 11 meeting, committee members answered questions with opinions about the Jan. 6 mob insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
“In light of several committee members’ participation in a recent parade for Trump in the township, I would be interested in hearing your reactions as to what transpired,” a resident said.
Mayor Richard Palombo and committee members each condemned the violence.
Another resident asked if the Committee would recommend that U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-2nd) resign, being the state’s only congressional representative continuing to contest the 2020 Election results.
Deputy Mayor Ed Barr responded, saying Van Drew represents many voters, and that there is a recall process in place if voters are dissatisfied with his representation.
