TRENTON, NJ — New Jersey Democratic State Committee Vice Chair Peg Schaffer is releasing the following statement regarding Republican Gubernatorial candidate Jack Ciattarelli:

“Jack Ciattarelli is a Republican political insider who fully supported Chris Christie’s disastrous agenda while he was in Trenton. That is the exact opposite of the kind of leader New Jerseyans want. Governor Murphy and fellow Democrats are working hard to correct the many mistakes of the Christie era, and Jack Ciatarrelli can’t be trusted to fix them. From stripping away funding for women’s health care, to enacting devastating cuts to NJ TRANSIT, to drastically reducing state education aid and thus causing property tax increases on the middle class, to failing to support common sense gun safety legislation, Ciattarelli owns the failed Christie legacy and it will follow him throughout this campaign. Even in the county we both call home, voters have rejected the old ways that Jack Ciattarelli personifies and chosen a very different path.”
