TRENTON – Senator Brian P. Stack today urged the Corzine Administration to increase efforts to assist Hispanic businesses gain access to job development and economic assistance programs that are available in State government.
“There are more than 700 Hispanic businesses in my area,” said Senator Stack, D-33rd. “I believe the State would be providing a great service if it held its job fairs and other economic development activities in Hudson County.”
Senator Stack, a member of the Senate Budget & Appropriations Committee, got a commitment from key leaders of the State’s Commerce and Economic Growth Commission who appeared before the panel, that they would seek him out as a partner in future outreach activities involving the Hispanic Community.
“New Jersey is deriving significant benefits from the intelligence, progress and achievements of the Hispanic business community,” Senator Stack said. “I just want to make sure the State development programs, especially those that benefit small businesses, are readily accessible to this increasingly dynamic sector of New Jersey business.”
Gary Rose, Chief of Governor Corzine’s Office of Economic Growth, agreed with Senator Stack’s request to be included in future outreach programs designed specifically for the Hispanic business community.
