Kyrillos abandoned his District 13 constituents by not even making a comment to support Union Beach in its fight to prevent a 38-story noisy industrial wind turbine just a little over 1,000 feet from a lot of homes. Hazlet, Matawan, Holmdel, Keyport and Monmouth County also passed resolutions opposing the turbine. But still Kyrillos refused to weigh in, even after he granted a meeting to a few locals looking for his help. Recently, he was the only Republican sponsor on a bill that would have allowed wind turbines up to 500' tall on preserved farm land in two southern NJ counties. Kyrillos is not what he claims. He's a wheeling-and-dealing back door politician with no loyalty to the people he's supposed to represent. I'm a Republican, and will gladly vote for Menendez if Kyrillos gets the nomination.

Then give your vote today to Bader Qarmout- his story is an impressive one- he will work for us. He is not a politician.
