Assembly Republicans Jack Ciattarelli and Donna Simon were at the table today with the local business leaders to listen to ideas to grow the economy and create jobs.

“Reaching out and listening to businesses in the community is critically important,” says Ciattarelli. “Today, local business leaders offered some insightful suggestions on what government needs to do to create an environment in which jobs are created and the economy grows.”

Simon explains, “Although we have seen some encouraging signs, we need to keep working. Today’s discussion in Hillsborough touched on worker’s compensation, unemployment and local zoning permits.”

The four counties in the 16th Legislative District represented by Ciatterelli and Simon have created roughly 20,000 private-sector jobs in the past two years, according to State Department of Labor and Workforce Development data.

“Our meeting with local job creators confirmed that the best way to grow our economy is to cut the red tape and burdensome taxes that stifle growth,” says Simon. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with local businesses so that we can keep creating jobs in our region.”
