TRENTON, NJ — Opportunity New Jersey (ONJ) has announced that its New Jersey Economic Development and Advisory Council (EDAC) hosted a productive meeting in Trenton this morning. The Council discussed New Jersey’s economic challenges and steps needed to put the Garden State on the path to affordability and regional competitiveness.
The nonpartisan Council was organized to further the education of ONJ’s objectives as stated in the Plan for an Affordable New Jersey, including supporting the state’s economic growth and streamlining the cost of government. The meeting included representatives from numerous statewide chambers of commerce, business and labor organizations, higher education and economic advocacy groups.
“We are pleased by the progress we have made, and grateful to the Council participants and meeting attendees for their collaboration and insights,” Bracken and Siekerka said in a joint statement. “We look forward to working with our Council members, the ONJ steering committee, and New Jersey’s governor and legislative leaders to effect positive change in 2020 and beyond.”
The EDAC and its activities are central to ONJ’s Plan for an Affordable New Jersey. Those interested in learning more about the Plan, and signing up for the organization’s e-newsletter, can visit www.opportunitynj.org.
