Centurion Says Gentile is Too Extreme
Sudbury, MA . . . .Today Ingrid Centurion(R-Sudbury), candidate for State Representative in the 13th Middlesex District, expressed deep disappointment Rep. Carmen Gentile’s vote for the “Police Reform” bill.
“Being multicultural, I understand the issues minority communities face. However, that doesn’t mean we throw the police under the bus. Our Massachusetts police did not cause the death of George Floyd. Yet, this week Gentile voted as if they did. He has let down our first responders and every resident of this district,” said Centurion.
Last night the House voted 93 to 66 in favor of the “Police Reform” bill which the Police Chief Association opposes. Despite measures already available to hold bad officers accountable, the bill repeals qualified immunity so good officers can be sued on the job decisions.
There was bipartisan support against the bill, but Gentile refused to cross the aisle.
“Gentile is not a moderate. He is a left-wing radical who has jeopardized public safety. We will have a terrible time recruiting and maintaining the police workforce moving forward. In New York, they have had massive retirements. Due to this bill, we will have the same problem. You can thank Rep. Gentile when we don’t have enough police on the street to protect us or it takes hours for the police to respond to a 911 call,” said Centurion.
“When I have been talking to voters, they have expressed anger over the Floyd death but they know our law enforcement is not the cause. They don’t like this bill. In November, Gentile will lose this race due to his failure to represent the people of this district,” said Centurion.
