Press Release 2/20/17
PERTH AMBOY – Mayor Wilda Diaz today gave her endorsement to Phil Murphy for governor.
“I am proud to give my support to Phil Murphy and will do all I can to see that he is the governor to lead our state forward after the disastrous years of Chris Christie,” said Diaz. “His focus on making our economy work for all residents and making our cities real engines of growth is exciting. And his willingness to stand up to President Trump to protect our immigrant communities and our Dreamers is assuring.”
“When I became mayor, I was the outsider who wasn’t part of the failed machine politics. And, as mayor, I’ve stayed true to serving my constituents. Phil’s campaign mirrors that ideal, and I know his administration will similarly put the people of New Jersey first,” said Diaz.
“I am honored and humbled to have earned Mayor Diaz’s support, and welcome her strong voice on behalf of Perth Amboy to our team,” said Murphy. “Under her leadership Perth Amboy is a city on the rise, and, as governor, I look forward to partnering with her to continue that positive trajectory.”
