In support of the task force will be Leslie Gimeno, County Planning; Joe Molineaux, consultant, and Diane Wieland, County Tourism and Public Information
The resolution creating the task force noted that the “pandemic has presented unprecedented conditions that have caused countries throughout the world to shut down its economies, resulting in the worst economic contraction in nearly a century.
“The economy in Cape May County has been similarly impacted, and it has caused great hardship and uncertainty to the seasonal and year-round businesses.”
The members will “assist the county with its economic response to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
