“When all the world appears to be in a tumult, and nature itself is feeling the assault of climate change, the seasons retain their essential rhythm. Yes, fall gives us a premonition of winter, but then, winter, will be forced to relent, once again, to the new beginnings of soft greens, longer light, and the sweet air of spring.”
- Madeleine M. Kunin
After an active winter, we have begun an active spring.
It has been a busy summer working in my district office, and as I return to the Statehouse, I look forward to continuing a productive legislative session.
I am proud to be part of Politicker NJ Observer’s Elected Officials Powerlist 2016. As one of the few women on this list, I understand the importance of encouraging more women to get involved in the legislative process.

Last week was quite an emotional one for me as I attended the 2016 Democratic National Convention (DNC) as a delegate for Hillary Clinton. Each day invoked a powerful theme of our collective values as Americans and how we all deserve a chance to live up to our God-given potential.

As we kick off the summer with Independence Day celebrations and trips to the Jersey Shore, I wanted to take a moment to share with you some important legislative accomplishments and exciting news both from Trenton and around our District.
Delegate to the Democratic National Convention
It is an extreme honor that I have been elected to serve as a delegate representing New Jersey at the Democratic National Convention this upcoming July in Philadelphia. Words cannot express what a privilege it is to have the opportunity to stand on the convention floor and cast my vote shattering that glass ceiling and officially ratifying Secretary Clinton as the first female Presidential nominee in history.
As a delegate representing you, I will be able to lend my voice in setting our national party’s agenda and advocating for the values that we find so important and essential.
For the past ten years, you have given me the distinct honor of representing District 37 in the New Jersey Assembly. Together, with your continuous support and encouragement, we have been able to accomplish many feats both in Bergen County and in Trenton. Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the event celebrating this milestone. The evening was a huge success filled with many memories and we had fun looking back at all we have achieved together.Read more
