NJ Councilwoman Resigns and Then Rescinds Resignation Over Christmas Tree Lighting

Tis the season:

It’s a Christmas miracle!

A New Jersey councilwoman who vowed to step down after her co-lawmakers voted to call the city’s holiday tree a Christmas tree rescinded her resignation.

“I cannot in good conscience continue to be part of a council that is exclusionary or to work with a mayor who is such,” Roselle Park Councilwoman Charlene Storey wrote in her resignation letter.

The body voted 4-to-2 Thursday to change the name of the town’s ceremony from “Annual Holiday Tree Lighting” to “Annual Christmas Tree Lighting.” …

Storey met with Mayor Carl Hokanson Saturday and decided to stay on the council, but will not attend the tree lighting, NJ.com reported.

People like her are truly the scurviest sort. Their motives are not pure, sensible or even reflective of the general wishes of people in her community. She is an exhibitionist showing off her politically correct bona fides and ultimately a hypocrite.

And, like the Grinch, she only shows up at Christmas time.

  • What a bitch!

        Now that’s a classic!

      But she’s an INCLUSIVE bitch, which she thinks makes her a better person than you or me. It doesn’t. It just makes her a politically-correct and wrongheaded bitch.

      • Blacksmith

        Inclusive unless you are a Christian you mean, It is easy to miss that since we cannot fathom it generally. If you are Christian you are evil and should be scourged……

  • Clausewitz

    Apparently she’s a councilor at large, which basically means she is an appointed progressive hack with no responsibilities to amyone but with political power. In other words the argument on why we should never embrace proportional representation as part of our political system.

  • Justin St.Denis

    The expression coined for what this councilwoman did is “virtue signalling”.

    What this woman is saying is “I have a more inclusive perspective than you people, therefore I am morally superior and a better person for it.”

    But really, we all know she is just trying to spoil things for Christians, the New Niggers of Western Civilization (NNWC).

      And let’s all wish her a Happy Holy Day.

    She might — MIGHT have been worthy of a small amount of respect if she had stuck to her principles and completely resigned but back pedalling on that shows what a weasel she really is.

    • moraywatson

      She has no principles. I suspect she has a degree in Womyn’s Studies.

  • moraywatson

    “Inclusivity” means that we will be allowed do only that which the fascists permit.

  • Allan

    So she back pedals after she calculated how much money she would lose not allowing her to buy all the “CHRISTMAS” presents she wanted.

    She is just signalling her progressive virtue very little chance of her actually resigning she needs the position to impose her facits ideas on
