Union County Democratic Committee Chairman Jerry Green today announced his support for Phil Murphy for governor in the 2017 elections.
“I have decided that Phil Murphy has the leadership, the ideas, and the temperament needed to turn our state around and turn the page from Chris Christie,” said County Chairman and state Assemblyman Jerry Green. “New Jersey needs to restore its place as a progressive state with responsible and strong leadership. Phil will be the governor who can get us back to where we belong. After speaking with dozens of elected officials and party leaders across Union County, the response was resoundingly clear: we are proud to stand with our next governor, Phil Murphy, and we are certain that all Union County Democrats will join us.”
“I am humbled to have the support of Chairman Green and his organization,” said Murphy. “Union County is one of our state’s great melting pots, and every single family deserves a governor who will have their back and focus on them. That’s the governor I want to be and with the help of the grassroots Democrats of Union County, it’s the governor I will be.”
