According to the site, the candidate, Nicholas Ferrara posted on the social network Gab in January saying he was “FOR execution of the marxist/communists jews [sic].”
The nj.com report added that Hamilton Mayor Jeff Martin slammed Ferrara's comments, calling them “vile and disgusting," adding that such hateful rhetoric is not welcome in his city.
“Hate has no home anywhere but especially not here in Hamilton - home to so many people from different religions, living in harmony with their neighbors,” he said, according to the report. “No one with such hate should serve in any elected capacity.”

Response by current board members
Furthermore, Susan Ferrara and Susan Lombardo, both current members of the Hamilton School Board, called on two other candidates who had run with Ferrara, Monica Quaste and Stacy Byrne, to drop out of the race following Ferrara's remarks.
"As board members, we are continually called upon to analyze and consider issues in the interest of others," they said. "Mrs. Burns and Mrs. Quaste, take your hollow words and turn them into deeds. Step down with Ferrara. All three of you need to leave the race."
