The forum gave the candidates and business leaders a chance to hear what South Jersey needs to continue its growth and future success.

"South Jersey needs continual leadership," said Debra DiLorenzo, CEO of the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey. "Not only to protect our region and our businesses, but ... leadership that can communicate with the entire state on what's happening."

Both candidates will debate against each other later this year leading up to Election Day on Tuesday, November 7th.
