Governor Murphy To Discuss State Of The State At Rowan University

1025

By: SNJ Today Staff

GLASSBORO, N.J. — New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy will be at Rowan University to discuss the state of the state’s politics on Tuesday, October 22, at 7:00 P.M in the Eynon Ballroom of the Chamberlain Student Center.

Since taking office, Murphy has pursued a progressive agenda, including initiatives to raise the minimum wage, combat climate change, protect undocumented immigrants, and ensure paid family and medical leave. Murphy will discuss those efforts, which were not without controversy, and also will talk about his perspective on–and approach to–state politics.

Murphy has recently touted the achievements of the states economy as his economic plan hits the one year mark.

“In the year since I announced my economic vision for New Jersey, we have made substantial progress in making our state both stronger and fairer for everyone,” Governor Murphy said in an October 1 press release. “Although we have made progress, we still have more work to do. We are hard at work attracting businesses to our state, beyond a narrow focus on excessive corporate tax incentives. We must continue to find ways to realize New Jersey’s potential as a hub for business activity, as well as a fantastic place to raise a family.”

Presented by the Rowan Institute for Public Policy & Citizenship (RIPPAC), the governor’s talk is free and open to the public; however, space is limited. To reserve a space visit go.rowan.edu/Murphy.

Murphy’s talk at Rowan will conclude with a question-and-answer session.
