Top Latino group backs Platkin

By David Wildstein, February 03 2022 12:26 pm

The leader of one of the state’s most influential Latino grassroots organizations is supporting Gov. Phil Murphy’s nomination of Matt Platkin as his new attorney general.

Latino Action Network President Christian Estevez said his organization worked with Platkin during the nearly three years he served as chief counsel to the governor.

“Platkin was a key partner with civil rights organizations,” Estevez said.  “We have seen first-hand his commitment to defending working families and look forward to working with him to advance key agenda items, including police reform, desegregation, and expending civil rights protections.

Murphy formally announced his intent to nominate Platkin this morning.
