"Today’s cowardly attack in Seaside Park, New Jersey is yet another alarming example of the dangers facing our community. As a Colonel in the United States Army, I am especially aggrieved to know that the target of this attack was the location of a charity event being held to raise money to assist wounded Marines and their families.
With my 30 years of experience in protecting civilians and my experience as a combat veteran, anti-terrorism expert, and federally certified Disaster Management professional, I know what a safe and secure community should look like. That’s why I’ve laid out a plan to help bolster the resources needed to protect against these types of attacks, including creating an anti-terrorism force that will identify and reinforce soft targets such as boardwalks, malls, and other densely populated areas. New Jersey’s residents need to know that their leaders are focused on their safety, first and foremost."
