CEO Comments

“New Jersey has high taxes, eroding infrastructure, the workforce works in New York City, government favors gambling organizations, budget is spent on governor ads for the state and his campaigns as well as his legal fees. Healthcare suffers. Public education suffers. Technology is behind most states.”

“Connecticut, New York and New Jersey: if you do not get your finances in order, you will have no business here. You are driving everyone out and do nothing to combat the problems. Every year your budget gets further and further in the red.”
