Slogan: At this time, none whatsoever! It used to be "The Garden State," but with large-scale industrialization and housing developments going up all over the state, the slogan raises questions with out-of-staters. When newly elected Governor Corzine sponsored a contest for a new state slogan in 2005. The announced winner was "New Jersey, Come See For Yourself!" (The preferred entry from my sources is: "I'm From New Jersey; Ya Gotta Problem Widdat?"). There was little enthusiasm for the winning entry, so a professional advertising firm has been asked to come up with a slogan.
