Workforce Development & Economic Opportunity
My focus in this area is uncomplicated. We need an economic development agenda that is forward-thinking and allows innovation to advance and ignite investment. Further, we need to advance programs and initiatives that prepare our workforce to meet the challenges of the jobs of tomorrow, while leading our economy towards a sustained path of inclusive economic prosperity. This approach allows us to address one of the real culprits of income inequality in our state, the scarcity of opportunity for to many New Jersey residents. It is why I have worked to expand employment training opportunities and modify our tax code to reward innovation and job creation.
