NJ Governor Looking to Lure Illinois Companies
(AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie heads to Chicago on Friday in hopes of recruiting businesses to the Garden State. Christie has recently launched an ad campaign encouraging businesses in Illinois to relocate to New Jersey. The ads reinforce Christie’s commitment not to raise taxes. Illinois recently enacted higher taxes. Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak told The Star-Ledger of Newark and The Record’s Statehouse Bureau the purpose of the trip is for the governor to meet Illinois business leaders.
