WEST WINDSOR, NJ-The venue was a statewide economic summit held at the offices of the Sarnoff Corp. here, organized by the Governor’s Office, and Acting Governor Donald DiFrancesco announced he would appoint a three-person task force to study and report on New Jersey’s economic competitiveness. The panel, whose members have not been named, will be charged with issuing a report by the end of the year, just before DiFrancesco leaves office.

Acting Governor DiFrancesco is no longer a candidate to hold the office in his own right. The new governor will be one of three people – Republicans Bob Franks, a former US representative, and Bert Schundler former mayor of Jersey City, currently engaged in a bitter primary battle; or Woodbridge Mayor Jim McGreevey, running virtually unopposed on the Democratic side. Whoever wins will inherit a DiFrancesco-fostered economic game plan. He promised to try to work with his successor to implement it.

“If we don’t do this, we won’t be able to compete with other states,” DiFrancesco said at the recent meeting. “We have to be able to successfully manage the state’s economy as it continues to change from traditional manufacturing to high-tech and information-based growth. I know all of the candidates, and I hope to be involved in some role.”
