Government consulting firm Millennium Strategies today announced that Bernadette P. McPherson, Esq. will be joining the firm as the Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development.

In her new role, McPherson will be coordinating Millennium Strategies’ marketing, streamlining business development efforts, and applying her expertise of local and county government to better serve the firm’s clients, according to a release.

“We are excited to be adding Bernadette to our team and expanding our marketing efforts throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania,” said principal Ed Farmer. “Bernadette is a tireless worker with a strong intellect, who can not only help us grow our firm, but also add invaluable counsel to our current roster of clients.”  

Former chief of staff to U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-9), Farmer headed up the congressman's successful ground game operations toward his successful re-election earlier this year. McPherson was Pascrell's staunch South Bergen organizing ally.

She has in the past entertained a challenge to state Sen. Paul Sarlo (D-36). At Assemblyman Gary Schaer's (D-36) holiday fundraiser on Tuesday she told PolitickerNJ.com, "no comment."

McPherson was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and was awarded a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and English Magna Cum Laude from La Salle University in 1983. She received her Juris Doctorate from Temple University School of Law in 1986.    

“Bernadette has valuable firsthand experience working as a local and countywide elected official that will help us better serve our clients,” said principal Sue Scavone. “With her extensive network and professional connections, I am confident that she can help our firm reach new heights in 2013 and beyond.”   

In 1999, McPherson was first elected to office as a Councilwoman in Rutherford, New Jersey. She went on to serve as the Mayor of Rutherford from 2000 to 2007. As a member of the Bergen County Board of Chosen Freeholders from 2003 to 2011, she served as Director in 2004 and 2005 and chaired the Law and Public Safety Committee from 2004 to 2010. Since August 2011, she has served as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice.  

“I'm  honored to be associated with Millennium Strategies and its Principals, Ed Farmer and Sue Scavone, who have a proven track record of integrity, quality, and results.  My role with Millennium is a natural extension of my work as a Mayor and a Freeholder, and allows me to continue doing what is important to me," stated McPherson. “Millennium Strategies is one of the best in New Jersey in securing grants and new revenue sources to provide vital assistance  for local and county governments. I look forward to being a part of its continued growth in the future.”

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile
