Please see the below statement from Matt Weintraub on campaign signs that recently appeared in Bucks County:
“Over the weekend, I was disappointed to learn that my name has been used by the Marseglia-Harvie campaign without my authorization or permission.
I’ve worked hard serving the people of Bucks County over the last 3 decades and have lived here with my family for most of half a century. I’ve earned my reputation, I’m proud of my good name here, and I am honored to have the opportunity to serve the people of Bucks County as the next Judge of the Court of Common Pleas.
Earning the support of Bucks County voters, regardless of their party affiliation, is important to me because Judge is not a partisan position. That is why I accepted the will of the Democrat voters who wrote me in during the Primary Election in May. So, now I appear on both sides of the ballot.
Unfortunately, in typical underhanded politics, the Bucks County Democratic Party seeks to capitalize on MY name, and MY reputation, for their own selfish reasons.
I can’t allow this, and I won’t stand for it.
In February, I neither sought, nor received, the endorsement of the Bucks County Democrat Committee, despite their endorsement for every other candidate on their slate. I was the only one not endorsed, and it was their choice.
I was never consulted on whether my name could be used, and it has now been misappropriated in a purely political move by the Bucks County Democratic Party.
Let me be crystal clear: my name appears on their signs without my endorsement or my permission. It is the worst kind of underhanded politics.
I resent it, and I demand that they take my name off their signs, immediately.”
