Lt. Governor Guadagno Attends Morris County Chamber of Commerce Women in Business Event

Discusses Women in Business and Their Role in New Jersey’s Economy

Trenton, NJ – Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno today addressed the Morris County Chamber of Commerce’s Women in Business Event, in Morristown. During her remarks, she highlighted the contributions of women in business and their immense impact on New Jersey’s economy.

“New Jersey’s unemployment has fallen to a rate of 4.4%, which is below the national average. As of February 2016 the unemployment rate for Morris County is 3.7 percent; for that month, Morris had the second lowest unemployment rate in the state,” said Lt. Governor Guadagno. “Of course strong women in business, much like yourselves, deserve just as much credit as we do for these successes.”

The Morris County Chamber of Commerce, and their membership, drive economic development and job growth in Morris County. As a result, the Morris County business community is partially responsible for the drop in unemployment in New Jersey over the last six years. To date, 78,800 jobs have been added statewide since this time last year. Unemployment has fallen to a rate of 4.4%, below the entire country’s average.

“The Lt. Governor’s insights on leadership were thoughtful and practical. In terms of concrete steps, women leaders create stronger relationships that increase their influence in their professions and across their communities,” said Paul Boudreau, President of the Morris County Chamber of Commerce.

The Morris County Chamber of Commerce boasts the membership to nearly 900 businesses in Morris County. The Chamber affords its members the opportunity to grow, promote, and pursue their business interests. This also encourages a healthy economic environment that highlights the importance of business to the public.
