Jim highlighted the economic impact of Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst on the entire central New Jersey economy. The base, he said, is one of the largest employers in New Jersey with 40,645 people. In addition, the Joint Base is indirectly responsible for another 65,000 jobs in Ocean, Burlington, and Monmouth Counties. Beyond that, the base and its payrolls generate $118.7 million in state tax revenue and $119.7 million in local taxes. Even a reduction in its mission would have an large impact on the entire state, but especially on Ocean, Burlington, and Monmouth Counties. Jim recommended that the mayors stay informed, contact state and U.S. legislators, and help support the group fighting to save the base, the New Jersey Defense Enhancement Coalition.
