Hi everyone – wanted to pass on this week’s update from the NJGOP:
Happy Labor Day weekend.
Experts and studies continue to raise red flags over Governor Murphy’s spending and borrowing habits.
Today, business relocation expert John Boyd said that Governor Murphy’s proposed budget effectively takes New Jersey “off the table” for businesses looking at relocating here. Watch the interview here.
Yesterday, a survey of 892 New Jersey CPAs found that the vast majority of them opposed Governor Murphy’s $9 billion borrowing scheme. Read more here.
And earlier in the week, data from United Van Lines provided to Bloomberg News showed that 7 in 10 New Jersey citizens moving were actually moving out of the state. Read more here.
“Governor Murphy has failed to inspire confidence in New Jersey businesses and families,” said NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt. At one time New Jersey led the nation in the export of pharmaceuticals, goods and other services. Today, we lead the nation in the export of jobs and people. Our parents and grandparents can’t afford to retire here and our children and grandchildren can’t afford to start their lives here. Under Murphy’s reckless and irresponsible spending, New Jersey’s economy will continue to shrink and we’ll continue to devolve into FaceTime families. Next November, it’s Phil Murphy who needs to pack his bags.”
