The SNJDC mission is to support economic development and maintain businesses that lead to better jobs, higher wages and tax revenues in southern New Jersey.

Jane’s efforts to advocate for South Jersey have been instrumental in creating partnerships with local, county and state officials, accessing essential programs and grants, and fostering connections and opportunities to further economic development in the region.

Jane maintains regular contact with SNJDC members to ensure a meaningful relationship between the Development Council and its membership.
