“Given the many failures, abuses, and lapses of judgement demonstrated by Prosecutor Camelia Valdes, it’s increasingly clear she should not continue to serve as Passaic County’s top law enforcement official,” said Corrado (R-40). “The longer she serves as Prosecutor, the more damage she will do to people’s faith in our justice system. If she truly cares about the integrity of her office and the reputations of her colleagues in the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office, Ms. Valdes would resign immediately.”

Corrado said there was a lengthy list of concerns regarding Valdes, including her repeated refusal to investigate corrupt Paterson cops who later were convicted of federal crimes and her alleged years-long abuse of and retaliation against a low-level staffer who was forced to perform personal duties for Valdes at their own expense.

Both community activists and Passaic County police unions have called on Valdes to resign.

“The simple fact is that Ms. Valdes no longer has the trust of the public or the law enforcement community,” added Corrado. “I urge Governor Murphy to listen to all of these concerns and help us find a better path forward for Passaic County with a new Prosecutor.”
