Alex Sauickie, who declared his candidacy for the open assembly seat, has a troubling history which cannot be forgotten, Jackson activists say.
On Wednesday, he received the endorsement Jackson municipal chairperson Clara Glory and vice chair Todd Porter who were both condemned in the past by RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and other leading republicans for anti-semitism.
”Mr. Sauickie has been at the forefront of the Jackson Council’s push to make the lives of orthodox Jews in Jackson miserable,” said multiple activists.
As reported earlier this year, Mr. Sauickie was responsible for the appointment of a known agitator and anti-semite Elanor Hannum to a Jackson township advisory committee.
A Jewish neighbor of Mr. Sauickie in the whispering hills neighborhood of Jackson provided stated, “Alex Sauickie has been at the forefront of attempting to stop Jews from moving into whispering hills. He fraternizes with all the known neighborhood agitators, and the thought of him walking the halls of power in Trenton sickens me.”
The Jewish members of the Jackson county committee have made it clear that they “will not be supporting someone with such a troubling history, and will be working to ensure the other respectable republicans are aware of Sauickie’s misdeeds.”
