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.”
