Manchester Mayor Rob Arace “Appalled” Over Swastikas Spray-Painted On Residences

Manchester Mayor Rob Arace told Lakewood Alerts that he was “appalled” after learning that swastikas had been drawn on several homes in Pine Lake Park, denouncing the act and condemning all forms of anti-Semitic hatred.

“I am appalled by these actions and will not stand for such harm done to any of our residents. I fully condemn acts of vandalism in our town, but more specifically and emphatically, acts of vandalism fueled by hatred,” Mayor Arace said.

“Additionally, I want to address the act of possible arson which placed our Manchester residents at high risk as forest fires continue to rise in New Jersey this season. I support the full prosecution of those responsible for these heinous crimes, as I would for any crimes alike. These actions have no place in our town, state, or country, and I will continue to advocate for unity,” he added.

“My administration values the concerns of all our residents and encourages you to share your thoughts on this matter. Together, we can work towards maintaining the distinct character of our town and creating a thriving community of which we can all be proud.”
