EAST ORANGE, NJ - Springtime marks the beginning of a new season…a season characterized by growth and budding opportunities. But this year in New Jersey, spring also marks an important political season. 

With the departure of our current mayor, East Orange will elect a new chief administrator to lead the city over the next four years. And in addition to our local election, this spring begins the statewide process where East Orange will participate with the rest of New Jersey to select a new governor.

This week, Phil Murphy, a businessman and democratic gubernatorial hopeful visited East Orange Cicely Tyson School of Performing Arts in a ‘town hall’ meeting to explain why he should be the next governor of our great state.
