WHO: Senator Testa, Assemblyman Simonsen, and Assemblyman McClellan
WHAT: Press conference to discuss small business COVID-19 response.
WHEN: Friday, May 8th at 10:30 a.m.
WHERE: Coho Brewery 28 Indian Trail Rd #103, Cape May Court House, NJ 08210

“Governor Murphy’s Shutdown has picked winners and losers all across the Garden State. Unfortunately, thousands of our small business owners and their employees have been dealt the loser card,” Senator Testa said.

“On Friday, we will stand with Karen Buckingham, owner of Coho Brewery, in her empty parking lot… while the Home Depot across the street remains active and open for business. How is this fair?” Assemblyman Simonsen questioned.

“It’s time our state’s entrepreneurs, the back bone of the New Jersey economy, had a voice. It’s time Governor Murphy and his liberal North Jersey task force get with the program ‘South Jersey is NOT North Jersey,'” Assemblyman McClellan stated.

“Every day, I enter the tasting room by myself. The darkness, the silence, and the cold made me feel not only alone, but I felt increasingly anxious wondering what the future of Coho will be,” Karen Buckingham said. “I worry about everything. If I catch the virus it may be bad, however, I also feel that if we don’t start living our lives the stress and toll that this virus takes on everyone can also be just as devastating as the virus itself.”
