Jack Ciattarelli, the front runner for GOP nomination for governor of New Jersey, slammed Governor Phil Murphy as “drunk on power” after Murphy vetoed legislation that would have allowed restaurants to expand their outdoor footprints.
The legislation passed unanimously in the State Senate and Assembly.
Murphy’s reasoning for vetoing the bill? It takes too much power away from NJ alcohol regulators protecting public health.
Gov. Murphy is destroying small business, our economy, and livelihoods. He’s not interested in compromise, only control. He’s drunk on power and it’s long passed time to take the bottle away. https://t.co/RVrWqupGSx— Jack Ciattarelli (@Jack4NJ) January 5, 2021
