A new digital ad for State Sen. Joseph Cryan (D-Union) touts the reopening of the Motor Vehicle Commission office in Elizabeth that was closed ten years ago, allegedly as a retaliatory measure by then-Gov. Chris Christie.
“When Chris Christie pulled this location for political retribution, the impact on our district was sharp and immediate,” said Cryan. “We promised our constituents we would do whatever it takes to get an MVC restored in Elizabeth so people wouldn’t have to travel for miles to get basic services fulfilled and working with Governor Murphy and his Administration we were able to keep that promise.”
The ad features Cryan and Assemblywoman Annette Quijano (D-Elizabeth) speaking at the announcement of the new MVC office, along with Gov. Phil Murphy and Rev. Reginald Atkins, a former Roselle mayor and candidate for the State Assembly.
Cryan faces a primary challenge from Assemblyman Jamel Holley (D-Roselle) and his slate of Assembly candidates.
“We fought every day to get this MVC location restored for Elizabeth residents and for people throughout the district,” said Cryan.
