“This administration continues to demonstrate questionable judgment in its hiring practices,” said Corrado (R-40). “Derrick Green was involved in a political scandal that brought down a government as a result of a missing $350,000. Only Phil Murphy would put someone like him on a board to create a bank.”

“Governor Murphy’s moves to crack down on worker abuse have been all talk and no action. The laws on the books that would prevent workers’ rights from being exploited are not being enforced by this administration. This inaction creates an inequitable playing field, with fly-by-night companies hiring unskilled workers, evading taxes, and paying below minimum wage to increase corporate profits. New Jersey laborers and taxpayers deserve better. We call on the administration to enforce existing laws that would level the playing field, fostering fairness and economic justice for New Jersey’s working people.”

Senator Kristin Corrado was honored for her unflinching support of the business community at the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce Legislative and Business Awards Reception on Wednesday in Bedminster.

Sen. Kristin Corrado was named Legislator of the Year by the state Chamber of Commerce for fighting to make New Jersey more hospitable to employers.

The Chamber presented Corrado, a small-business owner herself, with a Legislator of the Year Award for fighting to make New Jersey more hospitable to employers.

“It’s an honor to be acknowledged by the Chamber for my efforts to make New Jersey more competitive,” said Corrado (R – 40). “I am proud of my work at the State House and in my district to improve the environment for employers of all sizes and the residents who depend on them for jobs. Our state has a well-earned reputation for stacking the deck against growth, and I am committed to convincing Trenton that raising taxes and adding new mandates cannot solve New Jersey’s fiscal woes.”

The Chamber lauded Corrado for sponsoring several pro-economy bills including a measure (S2298) signed into law in June to increase tax credits under the New Jersey Angel Investor Tax Credit Act, and another (S3569) to eliminate the excessive surtax on the corporation business tax.

“Business is the backbone of our economy, creating jobs and feeding families,” said Corrado. “I am proud to sponsor legislation promoting opportunity with tax incentives for employers for hiring individuals with disabilities. The Legislature must enact initiatives encouraging growth and reverse policies impeding economic expansion.”

Corrado was joined by three other honorees from the state Legislature, including Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco, and Business Advocate of the Year recipient Dennis G. Wilson, president and CEO of Delta Dental of New Jersey.

According to the Chamber, the honorees were selected for their substantive action to improve the state’s economic climate and make New Jersey more affordable and competitive.

Sen. Kristin Corrado’s Thanksgiving Food Drive will be accepting donations at her district office in Totowa through Nov. 21. The food will help local food banks feed needy families in the area.

“Hunger is an ongoing concern for thousands of our friends and neighbors. The demand on food pantries reaches its peak at this time of year as temperatures plummet and the winter holidays approach,” said Corrado (R-40). “Thanksgiving grew from a seasonal celebration of the bountiful harvest, so this is an ideal time to collect canned goods and other food staples to stock the shelves of local food banks.”

“Families are being deceived into thinking they’re purchasing a high-end breed with the promise of an affordable monthly payment plan, not realizing they’re actually signing a two- or three-year lease that could result in their pet being repossessed,” said Corrado (R-40). “This deceptive practice of renting-to-own puppies and kittens employed by sinister pet brokers is cruel and must be stopped.”

“Anyone who has the audacity to use their taxpayer-funded position of power to assault a coworker doesn’t deserve a state pension,” Corrado (R-40) said. “Public service is about helping people and making the state you work for a better, safer place for all. Anyone who commits a crime that is contrary to that mission, whether it’s an ethics violation or a sex offense, shouldn’t be paid by the state for life. We need to confront this crisis head-on and ensure that people know there are real consequences for committing crimes in the workplace.”
