Dear Governor Murphy,
A serious oversight regarding Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) locations in South Jersey has been brought to our attention. While we are thankful these facilities have begun a slow reopening, the lack of geographic focus is putting an extreme burden on large portions of our community.
We have come a long way in terms of equality for every race, sex and creed in this nation. We still have a ways to go to before we are there for everyone, but we must find peaceful and meaningful solutions that offer positive outcomes for all.
Our law enforcement officers put their lives on the line, and some die in service to their community and nation every year. The malicious conduct that we saw from some police officers, one of whom took George Floyd's life, do not represent law enforcement and they need to be punished to the full extent of the law for their actions.
