Republican gubernatorial candidate Jack Ciattarelli to Governor Murphy: 'Cut the Checks!' - The Ridgewood Blog
Trenton NJ, “Cut the checks!” That’s the salient message Republican gubernatorial candidate Jack Ciattarelli wants to send to Governor Murphy to relieve the burden on New Jerseyans faced with delayed unemployment benefits. The remark came during his talk with Joshua Einstein-Sotomayor and the Hudson County Republicans via webinar Friday evening.
During the course of his conversation with the Hudson Republicans, Ciattarelli discussed a number of topics, including his economic plans for the state should he become the next governor.
While stressing social distancing behavior and the wearing of face masks as part of the effort to curb the spread of coronavirus, Ciattarelli also emphasized that New Jersey needs to reopen because of the financial hardships faced by so many. “I think the pressure is building, particularly with the Jersey Shore economy,” Ciattarelli said. “Its official start is the Memorial Day weekend which is about three weekends away. It is critical to the state economy and the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of New Jerseyans who depend on that season from Memorial Day to Labor Day. We need a thoughtful and responsible plan to open up the Jersey Shore and we need it now. We can’t afford to be thinking about it after Memorial Day.”
