We recap a busy September in this edition of TrueNorth. Governor Phil Murphy signs the budget for the nine-month FY2021. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announces significant steps the social media giant is taking to protect our democracy during the election season. The Murphy Administration and NJ TRANSIT break ground on projects that will help tens of thousands of daily riders. And a prominent industry trade association holds New Jersey’s first in-person conference since COVID-19 restrictions began to lift.
In this issue of TrueNorth we spotlight major changes announced by Facebook to its News Feed. We also train our focus on Jersey politics, recapping Governor Murphy’s cabinet picks and the slow Senate confirmation process. Updating you on New Jersey’s Congressional Delegation, we learn about one Member’s retirement and another who gets a huge boost going into re-election season.
