Christie ends term unpopular, but with legs left unbroken

A former Democratic Obama administration diplomat is set to take over the New Jersey governor's office from Republican Chris Christie.

"A stronger and fairer New Jersey embraces criminal justice reform comprehensively, and that includes a process to legalize marijuana", Murphy pledged shortly after being sworn in as New Jersey's 56th governor.

Murphy did not answer questions regarding the specifics of the order.

"We have to be a state in which we are judged not by the color of our skin, not by our gender, but by our qualifications". As President Kennedy once said, "we celebrate not the victory of party but the celebration of freedom".

Gov. Phil Murphy, a multimillionaire former Goldman Sachs executive, said Wednesday that he will accept the full $175,000 salary that comes with the governor's job.

Murphy, 60, a former United States ambassador to Germany and Goldman Sachs Group Inc.

"As Gov. Murphy acknowledged, hard work lies ahead, and as I've also made clear, the Assembly is ready to do hard things, stand up for middle-class families and boost our economy", Coughlin said. She favors allowing women to recover back pay for inequitable salaries. By asking lower-paid candidates - typically women - what they were paid in their last job before an offer, it can perpetuate the problem of lower pay. "So it's vitally important that we continue this particular effort".

And while Christie didn't break a bone himself, he did shift that burden (classic!) to the former lieutenant governor, Kim Guadagno. Right-to-work laws, which have become popular across the country in recent years, prohibit unions and employers from requiring employees to join or otherwise support a union as a condition of employment.
