NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—(SBN)—All five declared candidates for the New Jersey governor’s seat spoke before about 200 members of NAIOP New Jersey at the Hotel Heldrich Mar. 3, describing in individual presentations their vision for improving the business and economic climate in the Garden State, which several of the candidates described as having high taxes and a high cost of living that can discourage businesses and workers from locating here.

The declared candidates who appeared were: Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno and Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli, seeking the Republican nomination, and State Sen. Raymond Lesniak, Assemblyman John Wisniewski, and former US Ambassador Phil Murphy, all seeking the Democratic nod.
