Rutherford for All
The Rutherford Pride Alliance and Rainbow Fellowship of Rutherford want to use town property to make political, moral and social statements. This includes flying a flag at town hall for an entire month and permanently repainting crosswalks to colors that only represent the groups. The Rutherford town council is in favor of this and working with certain individuals to make this happen by June 2019. Will the council now allow any group to repaint a crosswalk or fly a flag? Why is one group given preference over another? If one group is allowed to make these changes then others will follow. This will only foster division. Town property belongs to all residents; not special interest groups.
Tell the town council you don’t want Rutherford torn apart by the bitterness, anger and political partisanship of our day. Rutherford is made of many different groups and it is wrong to favor one special interest group over another or over the entire town. The council should fly flags on town property that speak for all residents such as the U.S. flag, State of NJ flag or Rutherford town flag and keep crosswalks as they are without modifying the colors and lines or jeopardizing safety for political gain.
All residents want to live in peace with our neighbors and ensure that all are treated fairly for the common good. Keep Rutherford for All.
