AMG TACKLES THE COMPLEXITY OF NEW JERSEY
While New Jersey is one of the smaller states in the nation, the political, economic, cultural and ethnic differences found throughout the Garden State make it a complex political landscape that individuals and organizations often find challenging to navigate.
There are densely populated urban areas in the north that act as extensions of New York City and sparsely populated rural areas in the central and far southern areas where cell phone reception is hard to come by. All major religious and ethnic populations are represented within the state, and more than 20 different languages are spoken by its residents. The per capita income in New Jersey is one of the highest in the nation. Science, health care and financial institutions in the north lead New Jersey’s industry, while tourism and agriculture dominate economies in the coastal and southern regions. Few states in the nation have such a diverse and challenging make up.
Add to the socioeconomic differences the 566 different municipalities located in New Jersey and you have quite a challenging public sector. That’s hundreds of different governing bodies, public officials, laws and town halls to maneuver amongst.
The Advocacy and Management Group (AMG) has come to appreciate the diverse nature of New Jersey and embraces the
challenges that often accompany it. From corporations to organizations, AMG has expertly guided initiatives through the halls of Trenton and the main streets of New Jersey.
