I share in your deep and justified frustration with the poor economic situation of our region. For too long, South Jersey has been on the top of the wrong lists and at the bottom of the right ones. Our neighbors are struggling to find work or juggling two or three part-time jobs just to get by. Our families are facing rising food and energy costs while trying to plan for their children's education and their own retirement. Our small-business owners are nervous about making payroll, paralyzed by the uncertainty of their future tax bill, and anxious about what new government regulation will come next. Washington is making worse the growing disconnect with the real world.
