Well, SPCNJ’s FACTS have apparently gotten under NJEA Vice President and Montclair mayoral candidate Sean Spiller’s skin. We were surprised to see a Spiller campaign mailer (largely funded by the NJEA) designed as if Spiller were running against SPCNJ for mayor. But Vice President Spiller, SPCNJ is a non-profit research organization not a candidate for mayor!
Rather than address the FACTS that SPCNJ presented about his manifest conflicts of interest, Spiller’s NJEA-funded mailer attacked SPCNJ with falsehoods:
- SPCNJ is not “neo-conservative:” SPCNJ takes no position on America’s military interventions overseas. Does Spiller even know what “neo-conservative” means?
- SPCNJ came into existence after both Chris Christie and Dick Cheney were out of office. It is simply false to say that SPCNJ “supports” them.
- SPCNJ does not push a “pro-Common Core, pro-charter school, corporate education agenda.” SPCNJ has never taken a position on any of these issues, and it is false to say otherwise.
- SPCNJ is not “affiliated” with the American Enterprise Institute. AEI has absolutely nothing to do with SPCNJ.
That’s four-for-four on falsehoods. Easier to throw mud than address your clear conflicts of interest, Vice President Spiller?
Please see SPCNJ’s “Councilman Spiller, Mayor Spiller, Governor Spiller?” for a full discussion of Spiller’s conflicts of interest.
