TOMS RIVER, NJ – May 18, 2020 – David Richter, Republican candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s Third District, today criticized Andy Kim and called out his failure to deliver for the veterans of the Third District.

“Andy Kim has made a habit out of failing to live up to his promises,” said Richter.  “On his first day in office Andy broke his first promise, by voting to elect Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.  He claimed he did this so that he could gain better committee assignments to support the people of the district, notably our veterans. Well that broken promise was pointless, since the planned VA medical clinic that our veterans in Ocean County so desperately need has now been cancelled.”

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs recently announced that it has cancelled all procurement efforts for the long-planned clinic.  The current facility, located in Brick Township, is outdated and overcrowded and does not provide adequate services to the region’s veterans.

“Now Andy is sending complaint letters to the VA after the fact, which we all know will have little impact on their decision.  The time for action has passed, Congressman Kim, and you have failed New Jersey’s veterans,” added Richter.

Richter is the former CEO of global construction management firm Hill International.  During his time at the company, Hill grew from a struggling family business with less than 300 employees into a successful public company with more than 4,300 employees.  A lifelong Republican, Richter grew up in and has spent most of his life living and working in the Third District.  He earned two bachelor’s degrees and a law degree from Penn as well as master’s degrees from Oxford and Harvard.  Richter and his wife Michelle, who have been married for 20 years, are the parents of four daughters.
