“Important State offices, including unemployment walk-in centers, have been closed for nearly 19 months and completely inaccessible to New Jerseyans,” said Corrado (R-40). “Given the long wait, I hope the rumors aren’t true that some offices may have their reopenings pushed back beyond the date the governor set for his administration to get back to work. It would be yet another failure of leadership if Governor Murphy delayed the full reopening of State government any longer.”

“We’ve heard from seniors in Passaic County who were notified that their Meals on Wheels breakfast deliveries will stop on October 15 because CARES Act funding has run out,” said Corrado (R-40). “These food deliveries have been critically important to low-income, high-risk seniors who have avoided crowded places like grocery stores since the start of the pandemic. We’re calling on Governor Murphy to continue funding these Meals on Wheels services that are set to expire with a tiny portion of the $6 billion in federal relief funds he has yet to spend.”

“In-person voting is a critical part of our democracy and would not be possible without dedicated and committed poll workers,” said Corrado. “Sadly, our vital election workers have not received a consistent wage increase in twenty years. This is inexcusable and has helped contribute to a significant shortage of workers across the state. I am calling on Governor Murphy to address this problem by increasing the pay of all poll workers before the upcoming 2021 election.”

Dear Governor Murphy:

I write to you on behalf of our mutual constituents who are working parents, childcare providers, and their staff members.

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.”
