New Jersey’s main economic development program has come under fire for giving away billions of dollars in tax breaks to corporations with little evidence of substantial job creation for the state. In part two of our series “The Real Bosses of New Jersey,” produced in partnership with ProPublica’s Local Reporting Network, we look at how a powerful Democratic Party boss, George Norcross, championed the legislation that brought development to his beloved home town — and benefits for him.
