About the Governor
Phil Murphy, as he says, "grew up in a family that was middle class on a good day." That has shaped Phil's values, his priorities, and the kind of governor he will be.
Religion, basic values, work ethic, education, and civic awareness were pillars of family life. His father never graduated from high school, his mother worked as a secretary; they inspired Phil and his three siblings to pursue their educations and be active participants in civic life.
