“Our state has suffered through one of the most challenging times in recent history. We have had a complete shutdown of our economy and we are in the rebuilding process with many more hurdles to still overcome. Yet, somehow, Trenton Democrats believe now is the appropriate time to rename holidays in an attempt to change our nation’s history.
“We must use our time in Trenton wisely and help the people of New Jersey recover from the shutdown. Take a look at the Democrats refusal to investigate the deaths of thousands of senior citizens in nursing homes because of Murphy’s policies. Do Democrats realize we still have small businesses that are on the brink of closing and restaurants that are barely making ends meet with only 25 percent indoor capacity? We need to immediately go to 50 percent capacity with the goal to reopen completely as the colder weather approaches. Instead their focus remains on erasing our nation’s history.
“To Trenton Democrats, it’s all about attention grabbing headlines. Our delegation will always put our constituents first and focus on solving the real problems in this state and not be easily persuaded by what’s trending on Twitter.”
