  • Keynote: Senate President Steve Sweeney’s priorities, Transportation Master Plan initiative, and insights on the budget process.

  • NJ continues to lag the nation and region in job creation. Although the Garden State has always touted its highly skilled workforce, is it a “right-skilled” workforce?
  • Industrial/TLD is hot…but also dependent on roads, rail and bridges. How will we solve our transportation infrastructure funding problem?
  • Some employers are having difficulty staffing up, as younger workers cannot afford cars (due to high student loan debt). What should we do to improve and expand mass transit options? Can we bridge the gaps when public transit does not provide direct access for qualified workers at a distance? 

Panel Discussion:

  • Mary K. Murphy, NJTPA
  • Aaron Fichtner, NJ Dept. of Labor
  • Michael Chrobak, Choose New Jersey
  • Jim Kirkos, Meadowlands Chamber of Commerce
  • Gerard Scharfenberger, Former Mayor of Middletown/Office for Planning Advocacy
