Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso (R-Holmdel) wants Gov. Phil Murphy to postpone his nine-day trade mission trip to Germany and Israel so he can address questions about former administration official Albert Alvarez, who was allegedly investigated for sexual misconduct.
Murphy is scheduled to leave on Monday and return on October 24.
“Now is not the time for the governor to leave the state,” said DiMaso. “There are serious allegations of misconduct, and it is Governor Murphy’s responsibility to answer the public’s questions. With the governor’s insistence that equal rights and treatment of women are at the top of his platform, it is completely baffling why he would continue to avoid answering questions.”
