NEW BRUNSWICK – In remarks this morning, Democratic gubernatorial front-runner Phil Murphy emphasized his commitment to growing New Jersey’s economy – for all.
“It’s the economy, the economy, the economy,” Murphy told the NAIOP crowd at a Heldrich Hotel breakfast forum. “We have too many people who live at the edges of the economy.”
He wants the Gateway tunnel project. He wants more investment in education and institutions of higher education.
And he wants to be bipartisan, he noted.
“[Republican] Governor [Tom] Kean is one of my mentors in life,” the Democrat said.
