NEW JOBS, the Business PAC of New Jersey, Endorses 95 Candidates for State Legislature


October 5, 2017

“NEW JOBS today announced the endorsements of 95 candidates in the upcoming legislative elections,” Executive Director Sara Bluhm Gibson said.

“New Jersey Organization for a Better State (NEW JOBS) PAC, which is the voice of business, is proud to announce our endorsements for the 2017 State Legislative races,” Bluhm Gibson said.

“Our endorsements are not based on party affiliation,” Bluhm Gibson added. “NEW JOBS is not Pro-Republican or Pro-Democrat. We are Pro-Business and evaluate candidates on their willingness to lower the cost of doing business, strengthen the business climate, and create jobs in our great State.”

“We thank the endorsed candidates and endorsed incumbent legislators for their hard work and their commitment to the economic viability of our State.”

The endorsements made by NEW JOBS are NOT an endorsement from the New Jersey Business and Industry Association (NJBIA) or any other individual company, industry group or trade association. While many organizations like the NJBIA are affiliated with the NEW JOBS PAC, and represented on its Board of Trustees, the PAC is a separate entity with its own policies for endorsement.
