Assembly challenger backs Murphy EDA task force

Democrat running off the line against Egan, Danielson

A progressive challenging two incumbents in the Democratic primary for State Assembly says he supports the work of Gov. Phil Murphy’s task force investigating tax credits offered by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority.

“In an act that can only be described as brazen, political boss George Norcross and his allies worked to craft the very laws that funneled our tax dollars into their own pockets,” said Ron Rivers, who is running in the Middlesex/Somerset 17th district. “This is a bitter pill to swallow for any New Jersey resident concerned about our taxes.”

Rivers criticized his opponents, Assemblymen Joseph Egan (D-New Brunswick) and Joseph Danielson (D-Franklin), for not speaking out about the EDA issue.

“I will stand with Governor Murphy in his fight for transparency and accountability of the allocation and spending of our tax dollars,” said Rivers, a 35-year-old first-time candidate from  North Brunswick.
