(NEWARK) – Assemblywoman Eliana Pintor Marin (D-Essex) released the following statement on Monday after Newark was deemed New Jersey’s Amazon HQ2 finalist:
“I’m very pleased today to see that Newark has been chosen as New Jersey’s Amazon HQ2 finalist. I want to thank the governor and his administration for making the right decision.
“Newark is a focal point in a massive economic region, complete with a burgeoning technology sector, the country’s fastest Internet, an extensive transportation infrastructure, stellar higher education facilities, great culture and history and a diverse and talented workforce. I can think of no place in America that offers the great potential that Newark does for Amazon.
“Quite simply, it’s the ideal location, one that has already been on the rise with expanded economic development. Amazon would be another key piece of the city’s already great future.
“I look forward to New Jersey making its case and Amazon getting a great look at Newark and all the benefits it brings.”
