CEDAR KNOLLS -- Gov. Chris Christie announced Thursday that New Jersey added almost 13,000 new private sector jobs in February, building on last week's announcement that 2016 marked the largest annual gain in employment in sixteen years.
New Jersey's unemployment rate fell from 4.6 percent in January to 4.4 percent last month, making it the lowest it's been since October 2007.
The national unemployment rate for February was 4.7 percent.
"Over the past year, New Jersey's private sector employers have added 77,000 new jobs," said Christie.

I’m a lifelong NJ resident (unfortunately), and there hasn’t been any significant “rise” in employment or jobs. In fact, jobs are leaving (as are residents) for more tax-friendly states.
Electing a Repub governor does little if you have a Corruptocrat majority in the legislature.
Christie will forever and only remembered for destroying the best thing NJ had to offer....cheap gas!!! Idiot! Same with that bonehead, former GOP governor, Corbett. Hiked up the gas tax. Only stinking thing the guy accomplished with a full Republican State house. What a joke these guys are. Pathetic.
Elect a governor and legislature that will obey the 2nd Amendment.
