N.J. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO
Thomas Bracken's Statement on NJ's Unemployment Rate
and Economic Progress
Gov. Christie's report today on New Jersey's unemployment rate and private sector job growth is good news for our state.
Under Gov. Christie's pro-business agenda and with the support of the Legislature, we have made progress in the past seven years.
Lower taxes, reduced red tape and common sense fiscal policies have all contributed to the numbers outlined today by the Governor.
As we approach election season, we urge all of our leaders in Trenton to stay vigilant, and continue to maintain a pro-business agenda and the tax reforms enacted in the last seven years which will continue to grow jobs and improve our economy.
