A Helping Hand?

The Somerset County Business Partnership likes Hillsborough Township's Economic Action Plan so much that the group is going to present the plan to other municipalities as a "best practices" model.

This is a great deal for the rest of the county, whose leaders will get more than a peek at what is working in Hillsborough during this economic crisis.

But I'll tell you what - I don't like it.

Hillsborough is far behind its neighbors - Bridgewater, Franklin, Branchburg, even Montgomery - when it comes to commercial and industrial development. Cooperation is nice, but this is also a contest. A contest to attract and keep businesses in Hillsborough.

Those other towns really don't need our help.
