LEADING POLITICAL ENVIRONMENTAL GROUP CELEBRATES JOB-CREATING OFFSHORE WIND MARSHALLING AND MANUFACTURING HUB IN SALEM COUNTY
TRENTON – The following is a statement from Ed Potosnak, Executive Director of New Jersey League of Conservation Voters, on Governor Murphy’s recent announcement of an Offshore Wind Marshalling and Manufacturing Hub in Salem County.
“We have been calling for a post-COVID-19 sustainable green jobs recovery in New Jersey. This is just the leadership we have been asking for,” said Ed Potosnak, Executive Director of New Jersey League of Conservation Voters. “We applaud Governor Murphy and his administration for their plans to establish New Jersey as a regional hub for offshore wind manufacturing and their continued commitment to obtaining the economic development opportunities provided by this emerging clean energy industry. We ask that the Governor remain vigilant about providing opportunities to marginalized workers of color who often don’t reap the benefits of these new initiatives. Any post-COVID-19 economic recovery must include everyone, no matter the color of their skin or their zip code.”
