On this Thanksgiving, I wish to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude. In this season of reflection, I am especially thankful for friends like you, the joy of shared moments, and the support that surrounds us.
Our community is strong thanks to our residents and everyone working together to make our state a great place to live.
We have a great deal to look forward to in the upcoming days with Thanksgiving celebrations, being together with loved ones, and Small Business Saturday just around the corner on November 25. The latter is a great opportunity to support our local entrepreneurs, artisans, and small businesses that make our community unique and vibrant.
Thanks to our strong, fiscally responsible policies at the state level:
Our bond ratings are stellar.
Job growth numbers keep improving.
We have cut billions in unfunded pension debts from our balance sheets.
We paid back the pandemic-era Unemployment Trust Fund loan, which is great news for local businesses.
