New Jersey: Statement from Governor Murphy on the Passing of Calvin West
Jersey Desk/10039839

"If anyone truly wanted to know Newark, they had to know Calvin West. For more than 60 years, he put his home city first and fought tirelessly for its people and neighborhoods. He garnered great respect across the state. I met Calvin long before I ran for governor, but when I did he gave me advice when few others cared and handed down some tough love when he thought it was needed -- something he continued to do right up until his passing. He was a friend, and I will miss him. I know countless Newarkers will miss their friend, too."stats
