While a number of hateful comments were made at the podium during the five-hour Jackson Township council meeting earlier this week, perhaps none were as despicable as the comment made by Thomas Bradley.
Bradley, who is married to Zoning Board Chairwoman Lynne Bradley, made the shocking claim that the ordinances being voted on during the meeting would lead to “cultural genocide.”
“With this ordinance, we’re opening the door for future exploitation of the resources of the town of Jackson,” Bradley, who also teaches at Jackson Liberty High School, said during the public comment period. “You’re opening the door for the cultural genocide that has taken place in Lakewood to come here to Jackson. We have to take a serious look at what these ordinances would do to the town.”
The silence from the chairwoman also calls into question some of the recent application which were denied by her board, as whether she has been serving impartially, or does she share the same views as her husband?
A wide range of Jewish groups have released statements condemning some of the comments made during the meeting.
