The New Jersey Chamber of Commerce announced today that Gov. Phil Murphy will speak at its 81st annual Congressional Dinner on Thursday, March 1, at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C. U.S. Sens. Robert Menendez and Cory D. Booker, as well as Rep. Chris Smith, also will deliver remarks.
The dinner is the highlight of the Walk to Washington, the N.J. Chamber's annual train trek to the nation's capital. The event attracts New Jersey business leaders in every industry and political leaders in every level of government, giving guests unprecedented opportunities for conversation, visibility and business networking.
"I ain’t settling for just getting by/I’ve had enough so-so for the rest of my life.”
The words from Sugarland’s song “Settlin’” popped into my head as I listened to Gov. Phil Murphy’s inaugural address Tuesday.
No one should settle for where New Jersey is today. With the advantages and assets our state enjoys, New Jersey’s economy should be one of the strongest and most robust in the nation, offering opportunities to all of our citizens that are second to none.
While the tax code rewrite was working its way through congress, New Jersey Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Thomas Bracken called it “very dangerous” for New Jersey, warning it would harm property values and make the state “less competitive.” What does he think now? Recently Bracken, an NJTV trustee, sat down with business correspondent Rhonda Schaffler.
