Racist Post from Newton Councilman

Current Newton Councilman and former mayor Dan Flynn posted a racist comment on Facebook on Monday concerning the recent tragedy in Dallas, Texas.

Flynn was re-elected to a new term on the Council on May 10th, 2016.

The post has since been taken down, but a concerned citizen captured an image of it before it was removed.


In December 2015, then Mayor Flynn made disparaging comments about Muslims to the New Jersey Herald, voicing his opposition to a rally on the Newton Green in support of refugees fleeing the violence in Syria.
