Statement from Speaker Prieto

Statement from Speaker Prieto:
“I would like to thank the Working Families Alliance, the NAACP, the Latino Action Network and all of the advocates and organizations that spoke out today on this issue. Diversity means respect and an understanding that the officials who have the privilege of leading our state should reflect the multitude of people who make New Jersey such a vibrant and exciting place. It also means championing the issues that matter to working families of all backgrounds, like raising the minimum wage, lifting families out of poverty and creating educational opportunities. That’s what I have done as Speaker and I’m honored to see that work recognized. It’s unfortunate that some do not seem to understand this, even in our Democratic Party which should pride itself on embracing progressive ideals like inclusion, diversity and opportunity.”
