ILNH Statement Re: Actions of Susan Soloway

We, the volunteers of Indivisible Lambertville/New Hope, strongly condemn the involvement of the Hunterdon County Board of Commissioners Director Susan Soloway in the “Save America” protest in Washington DC on January 6.  Ms. Soloway knowingly participated in an event aimed at denying and overturning the results of the proven, legitimate election of our next president, Joe Biden, and vice president, Kamala Harris. Her presence at the event, standing side-by-side with those flying Nazi and confederate flags, demonstrates a complete lack of support for our democracy on a large scale, and in the abilities of our County Clerk and Board of Elections to honestly and accurately execute a free and fair election at the county level. 

We find Ms. Soloway’s participation in this horrifying event to be wholly incongruous with the good government and duties of any elected official. As a board of elected officials who are charged with representing ALL of the residents of Hunterdon County, we expect the Commissioners to be morally and consciously aligned with our Constitution in both private and public life. Ms. Soloway has shown she is not, therefore, we request the immediate actions by the Board: 

  1. An apology by Ms. Soloway to the Board of Elections for her denial of their ability to accurately and honestly execute elections, record and report the results. 
  2. A public statement by Ms. Soloway acknowledging that the elections were free and fair, and that she accepts that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the legitimately elected President and Vice President. 
  3. The replacement of Ms. Soloway as director by the Board of Commissioners, effective immediately. 
  4. A public statement by the Board of Commissioners about the remediative steps taken to restore the faith and confidence in the Board of Commissioners damaged by Ms. Soloway’s presence and participation in the Jan. 6 election and the recognition and support of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the 46th president and vice president.
  5. The resignation of Ms. Soloway if the above actions are declined. 

We look forward to the Board of Commissioners taking swift action. 

Sincerely, 

Indivisible Lambertville/New Hope
