Dear Governor Murphy:

I write to you on behalf of our mutual constituents who are working parents, childcare providers, and their staff members. Your recent executive order, No. 264, has left many New Jerseyans confused and concerned over the well-being of their children in daycare centers.

Says Murphy Out of Touch With Needs of Children, Parents & Child Care Providers

Senator Kristin Corrado (R-40) issued the following statement in response to a new executive order from Governor Phil Murphy requiring all children over 2 years of age to wear masks in child care settings:

Sen. Kristin Corrado said Gov. Phil Murphy’s new executive order requiring 2-year-olds to wear masks at day care is ‘big government at its worst,’ adding it shows how the governor is ‘completely out of touch with the needs of children, parents, and child care providers.’ (Pixabay)

“Forcing a two-year-old to wear a mask all day is big government at its worst. Will working parents be forced to pick up their child from day care if they refuse to wear a mask or wear it properly? Will day care employees be reprimanded if a toddler refuses to comply?

“I’ve spoken to concerned day care operators who struggle to get two-year-olds to keep their shoes on, never mind a mask. This overbearing executive order is yet another sign that Governor Murphy is completely out of touch with the needs of children, parents, and child care providers.”

“I am shocked and disappointed that both Essex and Morris counties were not declared major disaster areas by FEMA. The damage left by Tropical Storm Ida was quite severe, and many people in those counties require substantial federal assistance for recovery efforts,” said Corrado (R-40). “I visited several towns in both counties to survey the damage and noticed immediately that there were numerous homes and small businesses that were permanently damaged from extreme flooding. There is absolutely no reason to exclude the people of Essex and Morris from receiving essential federal support.”

“We’ve heard too many excuses from Governor Murphy for his refusal to reopen walk-in unemployment centers. October 18 is a month and a half away—that’s not good enough,” said Corrado (R-40). “My office continues to hear from hundreds of unemployed workers who can’t resolve their claims online or over the phone to get the benefits they’re owed. It’s unbelievable they still can’t walk into an unemployment center to quickly resolve whatever issues they’re having in a face-to-face conversation. Governor Murphy needs to reopen these walk-in centers and other public-facing offices immediately.”

“If an individual in New Jersey would like to purchase a used car from a private party, that individual should be afforded the same benefits he or she would receive from a dealer,” said Corrado (R-40). “Right now, if a person buys a car from a private seller, there is no legal way for that person to immediately drive the car home. My legislation, which was inspired by a letter from a constituent, will change that by providing the purchaser with a temporary registration. This registration will be issued via email and will make the car buying process far more efficient and enjoyable.”
