"Governor Murphy's announcement today is both hypocritical, and evidence that powerful Trenton special interests get to play by one set of rules, while the rest of us are forced to play by another set. Specifically, why is Governor Murphy willing to find common ground on a flexible vaccinate or test policy with the teacher's union, but not willing to do the same with parents who oppose his mask mandate for K-12 students? The answer, of course, is simple: average parents don't run a powerful union that funneled $10 million in dark money to benefit the Governor's campaign. The NJEA did, so they get to cut a deal. Parents did not, so they are told what to do without any recourse."
