TRENTON — Murphy for Governor today launched a new television ad, highlighting Governor Murphy’s actions to provide immediate relief to small businesses throughout New Jersey that have been impacted by the pandemic. Through the Governor’s actions, small businesses — and the Main Streets many of them call home — are getting back on their feet and poised for a stronger future.
In the ad — “Bakery” — Renee Faris, owner of Erie Coffeeshop & Bakery in Rutherford, describes the challenges of keeping her doors open during the pandemic, her support for Governor Murphy’s efforts to boost hard-hit small businesses, and her optimism for New Jersey’s future.
I built this business on relationships with people.
Classic Mom & Pop shop.
The unknown factor of it all was the most scary.
I thought I was going to lose my business.
I think Governor Murphy tried to do the right thing.
I think he cares about people.
He’s making sure small businesses like mine get the help we need — right now.
This isn’t just a bakery — it’s a second home to some people.
I’m super hopeful about the future.
Diehard Jersey Girl.
