Senator Edward Durr said Governor Phil Murphy’s plan to send New Jersey National Guard troops to Washington, D.C. for a peaceful rally planned by truck drivers is a waste of resources when many State services remain inaccessible to New Jerseyans.

“A peaceful truck rally in Washington is where Governor Murphy thinks he should dedicate State resources while unemployment offices remain closed, the MVC is still a mess, and thousands of Corrections Officers and health care professionals are on the verge of losing their jobs due to unnecessary vaccine mandates,” said Durr (R-3), a career truck driver. “It’s another example of Governor Murphy focusing on Washington instead of helping people here in New Jersey. It’s beyond offensive.”

The Murphy administration announced that more than 100 troops from New Jersey’s National Guard will be sent to Washington in advance of the planned truck convoy.

“The governor may have reveled in the images of peaceful protesters being hauled off to jail in an authoritarian manner by Justin Trudeau in Canada, but that’s not how we do things in the United States,” added Durr. “If Governor Murphy wants to be President, he should know that.”
