"New Jersey mayor opens Trump food boxes, removes president’s letter, and replaces it with his own Fresh food deliveries went to Linden senior citizen buildings By David Wildstein, October 22 2020 2:32 pm A letter from President Donald Trump that accompanied U.S. Department of Agriculture fresh food boxes for Linden was replaced by one from the city’s Democratic mayor, Derek Armstead. Food boxes were opened by local public works department employees. Trump’s letter was removed and a letter from Armstead was added. “The original letter in these boxes was removed, and the mayor had city employees put in his letter on work time,” said Councilwoman Gretchen Hickey, a Democrat and an Armstead political rival. Armstead acknowledged that his message was added to the box, offering local residents the impression to recipients that the food came from him. “Whenever I do a delivery, I always add a letter from the mayor,” Armstead told the New Jersey Globe. https://newjerseyglobe.com/local/ne...esidents-letter-and-replaces-it-with-his-own/ "
