Remember when Governor Phil Murphy tried to steal from the state’s firefighters? NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt remembers and his press release follows:
Trenton, NJ - The NJGOP is counting down the last 20 days before Election Day in the 2019 Murphy Mid-Terms with 20 reasons New Jersey is weaker and poorer under Governor Phil Murphy and 20 reasons to vote Republican on November 5th.
Reason #19: Governor Murphy Tried To Steal Money From Firefighter Burial Fund
Comment from NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt:
“The NJGOP is proud to fight alongside New Jersey’s first responders, especially after their Governor tried to pay for his laundry list of liberal handouts by stealing $33 million from the Firemen’s Association burial fund. And even though his screwball scheme failed, Phil Murphy’s last second retreat can’t erase his blatant disregard for the hard working men and women who risk their lives to protect our lives. New Jersey voters should be shocked and appalled, but then, hey, this is the same Governor who, last week, said, “If … tax rate is your issue … we’re probably not your state.” You shouldn’t be our Governor either, and your Party’s policies are killing our State.”
