Governor’s staff pushing turnout for state party conference, NAACP leader says

Danger: ‘The bus is free’

By David Wildstein, September 23 2019 12:13 am

Gov. Phil Murphy’s office is working to increase turnout at the Democratic State Committee Conference in Atlantic City this week, according to Long Branch NAACP President Bill Dangler.

“The Governor’s Office has asked me to be the  coordinator from Long Branch and fill a bus so we can be apart of the convention,” Dangler said. “ The Bus is free.”

Dangler says that lunch and dinner are included and that the first 30 individuals who sign up will receive VIP passes.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is headlining Friday’s event and Democrats appear to building a crowd for her.

It’s not immediately clear who authorized the bus for Dangler, who did not respond to an email request seeking comment.

Murphy, U.S. Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin will be attending the conference.
