On Thursday at 7 p.m., New Jersey 101.5 presented the latest in a series of Town Hall broadcasts to help New Jersey residents dealing with the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Even as more New Jersey businesses are permitted to reopen, the road to economic recovery will be long. With unemployment at record levels and the state facing a multi-billion-dollar deficit due to lagging tax collections, critical decisions will be made in the months ahead that will determine how quickly businesses will recover, or if they will recover at all.

New Jersey 101.5 continues the tradition of connecting state residents with top government officials to get them the answers and help they need.

New Jersey 101.5’s Eric Scott led the news and digital departments in a discussion with New Jersey State Senate President Stephen M. Sweeney.

“We want to hear from businesses about what they need to recover,” Scott said, “so those ideas can be incorporated into future relief legislation.”

Online, the Town Hall was streamed on Facebook Live at Facebook.com/NJ1015, where the members of the Senate Majority Office fielded questions from audience members in the accompanying live chat. The broadcast may also be accessed via NJ1015.com, the New Jersey 101.5 YouTube channel, or the free New Jersey 101.5 app.
