NJAMHAA Applauds Gov. Murphy’s Commitment to Continue Fight against Opioid Crisis, Lt. Gov. Oliver’s Determination to Meet Housing Needs
Statement from Debra L. Wentz, PhD, President and CEO

January 16, 2018 - 

The New Jersey Association of Mental Health and Addiction Agencies, Inc. (NJAMHAA) extols Governor Phil Murphy for his inaugural address in which he expressed his commitment to continue the fight against the opioid crisis. NJAMHAA also applauds Lieutenant Governor Sheila Oliver for her determination to ensure safe and affordable housing for working families.

Gov. Murphy’s anticipated Executive Order to promote equal pay for women and his determination to fight potentially harmful federal policies are also greatly appreciated.

NJAMHAA looks forward to Gov. Murphy’s address on the FY 2019 State Budget, which he stated would be “balanced fiscally and morally” – a goal that NJAMHAA wholeheartedly supports.

NJAMHAA is eager to work with the Murphy Administration, as well as Lt. Gov. Oliver in her role as Commissioner of the Department of Community Affairs, to ensure that New Jersey’s vulnerable residents receive housing and the services they need to live healthy and fulfilling lives.
