Former Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli said Gov. Phil Murphy should cut ties with staffers alleged to have contributed to a toxic work environment on his 2017 campaign.
“They should be axed,” Ciattarelli said. “I think anyone who has created a toxic work environment, anyone who’s violated someone else, should be fired.”
A growing number of people in Murphy’s orbit, including his 2017 campaign manager Brendan Gill and outside advisor Adam Alonso, have been accused of creating a hostile work environment.
Gill, who denies the charges, has remained close to Murphy after allegedly calling longtime Democratic operative Julie Roginsky the C-word in an argument.
Roginsky said she was fired after informing Murphy of the incident and passing along workplace concerns raised by others on the campaign.
Murphy said Roginsky was let go following a disagreement between top-level staffers.
“The people of New Jersey need not another black eye,” Ciattarelli said. “They deserve a gubernatorial campaign and an administration that sets the highest standards of competence and professionalism.”
