Weinberg Responds to the Governor’s Comments on the LSOC’s Final Report

Trenton – Senate Majority Leader Senator Loretta Weinberg issued the following statement in reaction to the Governor’s response to the Legislative Select Oversight Committee’s final report.

“The governor’s response to the select committees careful report is a disservice to the women of New Jersey,” said Senator Weinberg (D-Bergen).

The Governor today reacted to the findings of the committee by claiming that his team “did what they believed was the right thing.”

The bipartisan joint Legislative Select Oversight Committee was responsible for determining how Al Alvarez was hired for a top job by the Murphy administration after being accused of sexual assault by fellow campaign staffer Katie Brennan.

The committee’s report found that the administration acted irresponsibly, unprofessionally and with inadequate concern for the survivor of the alleged assault.
