MUÑOZ HONORED AT NEW ROLE IN ASSEMBLY REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP

Newly appointed Assembly Republican Deputy Whip Nancy F. Muñoz said she is grateful for the opportunity to be Deputy Assembly Republican Whip which was announced today. Muñoz was named to the leadership position by Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick. She was formerly Co-Chair of the Assembly Republican Policy Committee.

“I appreciate the confidence Assemblyman Bramnick has in my ability and I am eager to serve in this new capacity,” said Muñoz, who represents parts of Union, Morris and Somerset counties. “I have learned a lot since my arrival in the Legislature almost four years ago. I look forward to taking on the challenges and responsibilities of my new role and will do my best to serve the interests of my constituents, fellow caucus members and colleagues in the Legislature.”

Since assuming the seat formerly occupied by her late husband, Eric, who passed away on March 30, 2009, Muñoz has worked to improve access to healthcare and provide educational benefits to veterans.
Muñoz has championed legislation known as the “Jessica Lunsford Act” that increases criminal penalties for those who commit sex crimes against minors.
