On behalf of the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce and its Board of Directors, I want to congratulate Phil Murphy on his inauguration today as New Jersey's 56th governor and also congratulate Shelia Oliver for becoming our new lieutenant governor.
We wish them every success.
Gov. Murphy's "fight for Jersey" attitude is long overdue.
No one can be satisfied with where New Jersey is today.
Our state can achieve greatness with energetic and enthusiastic bipartisan leadership and we all need to work together to achieve it.
That message came through loud and clear in Gov. Murphy's remarks today.
The governor's message was broad and inclusive, but the theme was simple, and reminded me of the lyrics to the song "Settlin'" by Sugarland:
I ain't settling for just getting by
I've had enough so-so for the rest of my life
Tired of shooting too low, so raise the bar high
Just enough ain't enough this time
I ain't settling for anything less than everything.
