Christie criticizes Murphy for not doing enough for N.J. small businesses as he raises $800K in donations for his nonprofit

Former Gov. Chris Christie has raised close to $800,000 in committed funding for a nonprofit he started with his wife that gives $3,000 forgivable loans to small businesses struggling to remain open amid the coronavirus outbreak, the couple said Tuesday.

Despite Commitment to Transparency, Murphy Less Than Open About COVID-19 Spending

The state has received more than $5B in federal funds to deal with coronavirus, but it’s taken more than four months for administration to announce a dashboard to follow the money

By COLLEEN O’DEA , NJSpotlight

Today, it is virtually impossible for any member of the public — and even some members of the New Jersey Legislature — to know how or even if the state is spending more than $5 billion received so far from the federal government to deal with COVID-19.

Statement by Governor Murphy on the Passing of David Applefield

David Applefield, 1956-2020. RIP
“As a journalist, David Applefield covered some of the most pressing challenges of our time. As a candidate for Congress, he sought to do something about them. I am incredibly saddened to learn of his untimely passing this morning, only one day after the Primary Election — a primary in which he reached back across his years of journalistic experience to propose new ways of looking at old problems. We need more thinkers like David in our politics. I send my deepest condolences to his family at this awful time. May his memory be a blessing to them.”
