There’s a new podcast in town.
Veteran political insider Frank Robinson is entering the digital world with Take on Trenton, a monthly look at the issues and people who are shaping economic policies in the Garden State.
In his first episode, Robinson and fellow NJBIA Government Affairs expert Andrew Musick take apart Gov. Phil Murphy’s FY 2020 budget to see what it will do, or not do, for New Jersey businesses. In subsequent episodes, Frank will interview Senate President Stephen Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin.
“Take on Trenton is our way of bringing members the information they need to know in an engaging and hopefully entertaining way,” Robinson explained. “This format allows us to look past the legalese and what’s being reported in the media to really examine how state government impacts our business climate and how we can use that knowledge to make it better.”
Robinson has been a fixture in New Jersey politics going back to the 1970s. He’s worked on presidential campaigns on the state level in New Jersey and also served was Special Assistant to then-speaker Joe Doria, as well as executive director of the Assembly Minority Office before joining NJBIA.
Since 2002, Robinson has been a member of the NJBIA Government Affairs team, putting his considerable knowledge and contacts to work for New Jersey employers on transportation, manufacturing, and international trade issues, and building up the association’s grassroots network of business owners.
Take on Trenton is the second podcast of NJBIA, joining the year-and-a-half-old Other People’s Business, which takes a closer look at what our member companies do and who they are.
