Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington) on Tuesday congratulated Gov. Phil Murphy on his inauguration and pledged to work together to address the many challenges facing New Jersey.
“I congratulate Gov. Murphy and wish him all the best as he officially begins his first term.
“Today is the beginning of a new era in New Jersey, but it is not without its challenges. While we’ve had a number of bipartisan successes over the past eight years, there are many families in our state that are still struggling to make ends meet, put their children through school and, most importantly, afford their property taxes.
“I know Gov. Murphy is committed to raising the quality of life in New Jersey and making our state a more affordable place for everyone to live and I look forward to working with him in the spirit of cooperation to meet these challenges.
“New Jersey is one of just a handful of states right now that is uniquely positioned with both Democratically-controlled executive and legislative branches. It’s time for us to get to work and demonstrate to the nation how inclusive policies that strive to build up the working and middle class people of our state will make us stronger as a whole.
“I hope our friends in the Republican Party will continue to work together with us in a bipartisan fashion much the way we did under Gov. Christie.
“Today is a day of celebration but tomorrow the work begins,” said Greenwald.
