New Milford NJ, District 38 Amazon’s recent announcement of an RFP for states and municipalities to bid on hosting their second national headquarters, highlights the disastrous state of New Jersey’s business climate.

“With our proximity to New York City, talented workforce, and access to mass transit and numerous airports, North Jersey would serve as the perfect spot for Amazon to open its second national headquarters,” said Kelly Langschultz, candidate for New Jersey State Senate, District 38. “However, Senator Bob Gordon and the Trenton establishment have made it nearly impossible to attract businesses like Amazon, by raising taxes and fees and implementing job crushing regulations, year after year. Our crumbling roads and infrastructure, and the failure of the NJ Transit system contribute to our worst-in-the-nation business climate.”

Amazon’s second headquarters would create nearly 50,000 jobs and provide additional tax revenue to state and local municipalities.
“As a small business owner, I know first hand how difficult it is to do business in New Jersey. If we are to attract multi-national companies like Amazon, we need to act quickly and it starts with changing our elected representation in Trenton,” charged Langschultz. “Bob Gordon has no plans to grow our economy, because Bob Gordon has never signed the front of a paycheck, rather he’s always cashed his tax-payer funded governmental salary.”

“If elected, I will fight to cut taxes, fees, and regulations so that we can attract businesses like Amazon, creating tens of thousands of new jobs and bringing in new tax revenues to our state,” said Langschultz. “We need bold leadership in Trenton dedicated to improving our economy. Unfortunately, our current Senator is more beholden to the special interests and Trenton lobbyists, than he is to you. This November, you can change that by changing who represents you.”
Kelly Langschultz, candidate for New Jersey State Senate, District 38, is a mom of four young children, community leader serving on the New Milford Town Council, small business owner, and former President of the Education Fund.
