“It’s time to make New Jersey affordable again,” says Mike Deak of My Central Jersey. He wrote a profile of Opportunity New Jersey’s upcoming Affordability Summit, to be hosted by NJBIA’s Michele Siekerka and Thomas Bracken of the NJ Chamber of Commerce. The two Opportunity NJ cofounders have been working to get the state’s business groups to pool their experience and expertise in an effort to reduce the cost of living and working in New Jersey.
According to a study by NJBIA, “…outmigration is fueled not only by senior citizens looking to escape the highest property tax bills in the United States, but by millennials between the ages of 18 and 34 who have difficulty with the burden of paying college loans, high rents and even auto insurance,” the article states.
Opportunity New Jersey’s Affordability Summit will be held Sept. 18 at the First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens in Somerset.
