Bloodshed: Gov Fires GOP Director of the State Business Action Center

Link.

Monmouth County Freeholder Gerry Scharfenberger lost his job today as Director of the state Business Action Center, three days after the Republican refused to attend Gov. Phil Murphy’s press conference supporting a federal property tax deduction.

Scharfenberger had survived the first four weeks of Murphy’s administration, but sources familiar with the situation say that his termination today was a result of his refusal to endorse Murphy’s plan. Sources also suggest that key Monmouth County Democrats had pushed for Scharfenberger to be fired.
