TOMS RIVER, NJ – Jack Ciattarelli, the man who is challenging Governor Phil Murphy on the Republican side of the aisle in 2021 said Governor Phil Murphy and Attorney General Gurbir Grewal have gone too far. Ciatarelli said this week that their new knee-jerk scheme to shame the state’s police officers for transgressions, some decades-old is out of line.
“A good number of the names that AG Grewal plans to release include troopers granted retirement or no longer involved in law enforcement. Some have even passed away, leaving their families to see the names of their loved ones dragged through the mud with no ability to defend themselves,” Ciattarelli said. “I join with the police unions in calling on the AG to protect troopers and their families from becoming potential targets of violence or harassment, rescind his order, and come up with a more reasonable and appropriate plan.”
At this time Ciattarelli is the only candidate from the Republican side who has announced he will run against Phil Murphy next year.
