TRENTON, N.J. – Assembly Republican Leader John DiMaio called on Gov. Phil Murphy and his administration to take full accountability for continuing to fail veterans at state-run homes and take immediate action to ensure their health and safety following the conclusion of the federal investigation at Menlo Park and Paramus Thursday.
“The DOJ’s report will be a permanent stain on this administration and revealed what we long knew to be true – that Governor Murphy violated the U.S. Constitution by sweeping the suffering of veterans under the rug. Unfortunately, his administration’s egregious failures have continued to bring harm to these heroes. Murphy must take accountability and immediately address the conditions at Menlo Park and Paramus. Lives are at stake,” DiMaio (R-Warren) said. “Our most vulnerable residents cannot survive this administration’s long-overdue Covid investigation, apathy and inaction. There must be no question as to the kind of care New Jersey’s veterans are receiving. They deserve the best that this state can provide. Enough excuses.”
