Ciattarelli wants Murphy to give up DGA post

Former Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli wants Gov. Phil Murphy to give up his post with the Democratic Governors Association.

“New Jersey has full-time problems that require the undivided attention of a full-time Governor. Phil Murphy should take heed,” Ciattarelli said. “New Jersey taxpayers have no appetite whatsoever for a Governor of either party spending his/her time flying around the country engaged in partisan activities raising money, campaigning and strategizing for their political party. For New Jersey’s sake, this is not the time for Phil Murphy to become Chairman of the Democratic Governors Association.”

Murphy is currently vice chair of the DGA. He’s set to take the organization helm of the organization next year.

Murphy’s predecessor, Gov. Chris Christie, helmed the Republican Governors Association while in office. Christie also ran for president.

Last week, Murphy said he had no plans to seek higher office.
