Governor Jon S. Corzine has announced the formation of a blue ribbon advisory panel known as the New Jersey Real Estate Advisory Board. The panel will be comprised of economic development leaders throughout the state, representing a cross-section of New Jersey’s major industry sectors.
“New Jersey cannot stand idly by while America’s financial crisis continues to evolve,” Corzine said in a prepared statement. “I look forward to collaborating with these talented industry leaders to craft policies that will help see New Jersey through this current economic crisis.”
The new board, which will serve as an informal advisory commission to the governor, will be chaired by Joseph Taylor, CEO of the Matrix Development Group, a commercial real estate firm that has its headquarters in Cranbury.
The newly-formed advisory board Taylor heads, which is also to include leaders from academia, real estate, eduation, and a number of other industries, is charged with working to create jobs, revenue, and economic stability for the state during this national recession.
Governor Corzine announced the formation of the advisory group, whose key task is bringing good jobs to New Jersey, on December 22.
