Governor Murphy and his allies in the Legislature stood by complacently while small business suffered – and many failed – due to the Governor’s extreme pandemic policies.

While the Governor delivered daily Coronavirus briefings, average New Jerseyans began to experience despondency and mental illness. Additionally, middle class residents suffered near financial ruin because of a faulty unemployment benefits system.

Assemblyman Barranco will fight these unilateral mandates with his Republican colleagues – and will bring fresh ideas to fix this broken system. Governor Murphy’s policies have poisoned New Jersey’s economy for several years.
