Gov. Phil Murphy Responds to Release of Full Al Alvarez Report

Gov. Phil Murphy responds to the release of the full report of the NJ Legislative Select Oversight Committee concerning the hiring of Albert Alvarez by reiterating that he has long said that we can and must do better to allow survivors of sexual assault to seek justice.

Statement from Alyana Alfaro, Press Secretary:

“Governor Murphy has long said that we can and must do better to allow survivors of sexual assault to seek justice. He commissioned a systemic review by former Attorney General and Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court Peter Verniero, launched an internal review of existing EEO policy in State government, and directed the Attorney General to review how these cases are handled by law enforcement.  These actions have already led to meaningful reforms, putting New Jersey on a path to being a national leader in the fight for survivors of sexual assault. Although there is still work to do to change the culture surrounding issues of sexual assault, the Governor is confident that these steps will significantly improve our current system.  The Governor’s Office will review the Legislature’s report and recommendations.”

    Wow, what a genius she is! If a campaign loyalist and appointee can’t find justice, how can a regular person? This administration is a joke. They don’t even care about their own.
