“Even as the economy is improving, there’s no shortage of people looking for new opportunities and events like this one help facilitate these relationships.  Lastly, I am thankful to the East Brunswick Library and the East Brunswick Regional Chamber of Commerce for their assistance and support of this event,” said Pinkin.
