Here is some more economic good news for the State and Governor Corzine, it seems that private sector job creation is really picking up steam.
The following article appeared on NJ.com earlier today and touts groundbreaking of the $250 billion Port of Paulsboro expansion project that will create 2,500 jobs and 800 construction jobs for our beleaguered state:
PAULSBORO — Gov. Jon S. Corzine and other state officials were here this morning for the Port of Paulsboro project’s groundbreaking.
The $250 billion port project is expected to create 2,500 jobs and 800 construction jobs and to impact approximately 20,000 other jobs in the area.
“This is just one of the most successful concepts that I have seen put together in a very, very long time for economic development and expansion,” Corzine said.
“We are taking the opportunity to build jobs today by building opportunity for tomorrow,” the governor said.
“Very few places are we creating the long-term economic opportunities that are being created right here as we break ground on a new port,” Corzine said.
Construction on the project is expected to begin in the next couple of weeks at the former BP site on the Delaware River.
