Statement From Governor Chris Christie on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Trenton, NJ – Today, Governor Chris Christie issued the following statement in commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day:

“Today as we honor the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I am proud New Jersey has long been at the forefront of efforts to honor and continue his work. I encourage New Jerseyans to pause and reflect on his contributions to our society and to do their part to make his dream a reality for all Americans. Dr. King’s message is one that is deeply rooted in the same ideals that have made our state and our nation great -- equality, freedom, faith, and opportunity for all.”

New Jersey, under Governor Tom Kean, was the first state to establish a Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Commission in 1983 to ensure Dr. King’s life and work were continually recognized across New Jersey.

Governor Christie also proclaimed Monday, January 16, 2012 “Martin Luther King, Jr. Day” throughout New Jersey. Statement From Governor Chris Christie on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
