Gubernatorial Candidate Phil Murphy Visits Community Options
PRINCETON, NJ (December 12, 2016) — Last week, 2017 New Jersey gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy visited nonprofit Community Options’ Daily Plan It office in Princeton, NJ.
The Daily Plan It (DPI) is a Community Options Enterprises’ business which was created to train and employ people with disabilities. The DPI is a complete office, conference and copy center that offers furnished office rental space or virtual tenancy to a variety of businesses. The DPI gives people with disabilities an opportunity to earn minimum wage or better, learn new skills and find employment in the community with their new skill set.
Murphy spent time interacting with the individuals supported, the Community Options staff and touring and learning how the Daily Plan It operates.
“Community Options’ work is not only vital and important, but invaluable,” said Murphy. “Our state works best when every resident, regardless of ability, has the resources and tools to achieve their full potential. I am grateful to the clients and staff for their warm welcome, but more importantly for what they do.”
In May, Murphy announced his campaign for the 2017 Democratic nomination for New Jersey governor. Murphy spent several years as the Unites States ambassador to Germany and was also an executive at Goldman Sachs. The Middletown, NJ native graduated from Harvard University and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
