Statement from Governor Murphy on Newark’s Selection as a Finalist for Amazon’s HQ2

"Amazon’s announcement that Newark is among the finalists for ‘HQ2’ proves New Jersey’s amazing strengths and potential to once again be a global driver of technology and innovation. Our location is unparalleled, our highly educated workforce is among the best anywhere, and our strong public schools, diversity, and infrastructure combine to create communities that businesses and workers would love to call home. While today certainly is good news, our work is not done. We are going to continue to press our case for Amazon to come to Newark.”
