Vainieri Huttle on Bergen County Sheriff Saudino: If the Allegations are True, He Must Step Down

(TRENTON) – Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-Bergen) issued the following statement today in response to the allegations against Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino:

“The comments made in that recording are despicable and unbecoming of a public official, especially one tasked with enforcing the law. It is these kinds of attitudes that make people distrust the justice system and how it treats certain segments of the population. The racist assertions against African-Americans and Attorney General Grewal, and the inflammatory remark against Lieutenant Governor Oliver are repugnant. If these words were indeed spoken by Sheriff Saudino, if these allegations are proven true, then he must step down.”
