"It's no surprise that Phil Murphy has resorted to lying about me in his latest ads. It's all an attempt to distract from his own failed record," said Ciattarelli, an MBA/CPA who started two successful Main Street businesses. "Hard-working residents throughout the state are burdened by the highest taxes in the nation and have been left to fend for themselves by an incompetent state government. They're tired of politicians who are more concerned with pointing fingers than providing solutions. It's time to tackle the top issues facing New Jersey families and build a government that serves its citizens effectively. When I'm Governor, we will."
"Even Governor Murphy knows that our plan to Fix New Jersey by lowering property taxes, creating jobs, supporting law enforcement, and streamlining state government is resonating with voters. That's why he's resorted to such dishonest campaign tactics," said former State Senator Diane Allen. "Over the next 40 days, Governor Murphy will do everything he can to avoid discussing his track record of tax hikes, rising crime, and failing to protect women. Thankfully, New Jersey residents are smarter than he thinks – we know the mess Murphy has made. He can't hide behind his lies."
