manalapan-debate-800x600Deputy Freeolder Director Serena DiMaso was challenged by her Democrat opponent, Sue Fulton, to declare her differences with the Republican National Platform at a candidates forum on Thursday night at the Four Seasons 55+ community in Manalapan.

Both DiMaso and Fulton were both aware that Democrat operatives were seated in the audience recording the exchange for use on the barrage of TV commercials that will attack DiMaso starting next week and extending through election day.

Rather than get into a same sex marriage or abortion debate by answering the GOP platform question, DiMaso deftly pivoted and addressed the presidential candidates.

“I am undecided on how I will vote for president,” DiMaso said. “There are millions of people in the country and these two candidates are the best we can do?!

“Under no circumstances could I vote for Hillary.  I am very disappointed that she is the first woman nominee.  I don’t consider her a role model. She is a bad example for our daughters.

“But I am very disturbed by Trump’s treatment of women and his rhetoric about women.”

DiMaso’s comments were made the night before the Washington Post released an 11 year old recording of Trump engaging in misogynist banter with TV host Billy Bush and Trump’s televised apology.

Earlier in the evening in response to a similar question from the moderator, DiMaso spoke of her bi-partisan work with fellow women leaders in the National Federation of Women Legislators.  DiMaso is the membership chair and a member of the Board of Directors of NFWL.

“This is a wonderful organization,” DiMaso exclaimed. “Women public servants, Republicans and Democrats, working together, teaching each other and sharing experiences on how to better serve our constituents.

“Unfortunately, there are no members of congress in the organization,” DiMaso said, “We need more cooperation in Washington.”

In a follow up interview with MMM, DiMaso said, “Hillary was a doormat for Bill and now Bill is a doormat for Hillary. They are no better. Hillary was worse than a doormat because she defended and enabled Bill’s predatory behavior.  They have a lot of nerve calling Republicans deplorable.”
