Mayoral Candidate William OHanlon Vows to Fight Corruption Starting with the Ballot

By: PRLog

SEWELL, N.J. & BLACKWOOD, N.J. - April 20, 2024 - PRLog -- Fearing the overwhelming support for OHanlon, Acting Mayor Laurie Burns and her political insiders have taken their corruption to a new low by manipulating the democratic process to prevent reformer William OHanlon from appearing on the ballot.

William OHanlon, an anti-corruption candidate running for Mayor of Washington Township, announced today that Acting Mayor Laurie Burns conspired with political insiders Christine Ciallella and Barbara Moore to disqualify OHanlon from the 2024 Democratic Primary ballot. Citing an erroneous claim that OHanlon did not meet the residency requirement, even though OHanlon has lived in Washington Township for over 30 years.

"The political machine in Washington Township will do anything to maintain power, even if it means denying voters a choice in their own election," said OHanlon. "I'm running to put an end to these corrupt practices, and it's clear I've already struck a nerve."

OHanlon's campaign anticipated this undemocratic move and filed a lawsuit on April 17, 2024, against Ciallella and Moore to overturn their ruling. OHanlon called on the Board of Elections to immediately reinstate his name on the ballot and allow the democratic process to proceed freely and fairly.

"The voters of Washington Township deserve a choice in who will lead them," OHanlon said. "Our township has been crippled by corruption for too long. This latest stunt shows exactly why we need new leadership committed to integrity and fairness. I will continue to fight for the people of Washington Township and work to put an end to these rigged systems that only benefit the political elite."

OHanlon, a lifelong resident of Washington Township, has pledged to make anti-corruption a major part of his campaign. His platform includes overhauling the Board of Elections, establishing an independent ethics board, and stopping the decay and revitalize the Black Horse Pike which has been plagued by corruption for decades.
