A Letter from Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno

When I started my first term as Lt. Governor, unemployment in New Jersey was over 9%. This was unacceptable. Today, we are down to 5.1% unemployment, near the national average. But, I am not taking anything for granted. I embarked on a "100 Business Tour" in 2011, visiting businesses and learning about how we could help them grow and thrive in New Jersey. With that in mind, I am visiting businesses once again, and I started with a roundtable in Berkeley Township. For 2016 I will be holding roundtables all across the state highlighting our State's journey "Back from the Brink", giving community business leaders a chance to be heard. The opportunities for government and the community to work together to build a better business environment in New Jersey are endless. There is still a fight to be had to keep thriving and successful businesses here in New Jersey; I am ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work once again.

Businesses and Communities Working Together

My first stop to visit local businesses and communities for 2016 was held in Berkeley Township. In the meeting was myself, Mayor Carmen Amato, and local business leaders exemplifying how businesses and communities working together to create successful partnerships. We have made a lot of progress, but there is still work to be done. The roundtables will continue with soon to be announced dates and locations in February.

Winter Storm Jonas
As you know, New Jersey was hit by Winter Storm Jonas. Last Monday, I was able to go to the heaviest hit areas, including Ortley Beach, Stone Harbor, Long Beach Island, and North Wildwood, to personally assess the damage to see if there was anything that we could do to accelerate the pace of recovery. On Thursday, I will be returning to attend recovery workshops.
