Growing central New Jersey's job base--particularly in the high-tech arena--requires a close working relationship between government, business, and labor. Finding the right balance between sometimes competing interests can be challenging but also rewarding. In New Jersey, I've acted as the facilitator for what I've termed the "Einstein's Alley economic development process," a public forum that seeks to expand central New Jersey's job base while simultaneously maintaining our quality of life. On December 19, 2005, the second "Einstein's Alley" conference was held in Princeton where the "best practices" of the past two years were discussed by a range of business and community leaders. In Washington, I fight for economic policies that will strengthen central New Jersey's economic position as well as protect workers rights and increase their opportunities for getting better paying jobs. Below you'll find a summary of what I have and am doing on this subject, along with links to other resources and information on the topic.
