NJGOP Chairman On Honeywell Moving To North Carolina
For Immediate Release
Trenton, NJ - It was announced today that Morris Plains based company, Honeywell, Inc. is relocating its corporate headquarters to North Carolina.
This news comes just days after Amazon announced that New Jersey failed to secure the bid for HQ2, and only a few months after Gerber announced it is relocating their corporate headquarters to North Carolina.
"We need Phil Murphy and Democratic leaders in Trenton to wake up and realize that New Jersey under attack. We are in a battle to earn the trust of our State’s job creators, and we are losing,” said NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt. "While Murphy is off playing in a liberal policy-playground, NJ Transit is dying, pension and healthcare reforms haven’t moved, and we're bleeding well-paying jobs and the tax revenue that comes with them. Tax hikes from this year's budget are a repellant to an increasing number of businesses considering New Jersey as their home."
Steinhardt continued, "Our state has the potential to be a booming hub for economic growth and emerging industries. Unfortunately, Democratic policies spilling out of Trenton are killing it off. We need a Governor who understands the high value that New Jersey businesses bring, and a Governor who is committed to lowering taxes and improving our State’s business climate."
