Former Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli said his campaign won’t use non-disclosure agreements on his campaign for the Republican gubernatorial nomination.
“We didn’t have them last time, and we won’t have them this time,” he said. “I don’t see the need for them, frankly. And as Tom Moran said it best, Phil Murphy is hypocrisy on steroids when it comes to that issue.”
Gov. Phil Murphy has drawn fire for non-disclosure agreements, with critics claiming the gag orders prevented women from exposing toxic work environments.
On Tuesday, Murphy directed campaign attorney Paul Josephson to send a letter saying all members of his campaign were allowed to discuss toxic workplace issues to Democratic strategist Julie Roginsky, who has advocated against NDAs in part by citing her experience on Murphy’s campaign.
A potential candidate for governor, GOP state chairman Douglas Steinhardt, said last week that any candidates or party organizations that use NDAs to prevent staffers from discussing sexual harassment or assault on the campaign would not be permitted to use state party data bases or bulk mailing permits.
