from The Press of Atlantic City
Democrat Phil Murphy and Republican Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno want voters to put them in charge of the state's economy and are charting different courses toward what they promise will be growth. Murphy is promising to spur the creation of science and technology jobs, wants to implement a public bank, hike the minimum wage and gain credit-agency trust by "fully funding" the public pension. Guadagno has homed in on property tax reduction, but is also saying she will follow through with Chris Christie's $5 billion in promised tax credits to lure Amazon's new headquarters to New Jersey.
