Democrat Mayor Blames Murphy For Crime Surge


According to a new report, Paterson Mayor Andre Sayegh is blaming Governor Murphy’s early prisoner release program for the surge in gun crime. reports that more people have been shot in Paterson this year than at any other time in the past decade, according to city statistics.

NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt published an Op-Ed earlier this year exposing the shocking increase in gun crime and Governor Murphy’s refusal to get tough on chronic criminals.

NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt released this comment:

“Governor Murphy lied to New Jersey and released violent criminals into our neighborhoods. His weak leadership and bad judgment make our communities less safe and put our families at greater risk. Now, even members of his own Party are crying out publicly, condemning his policies and highlighting his failures. Governor Murphy’s radical, liberal agenda rewards criminals and threatens innocent New Jerseyans. His reckless, unreasonable and unsafe ideas must end. New Jersey deserves government with guts. It’s time for Phil to go.”
