Last night the Women’s Political Caucus of New Jersey (WPCNJ) voted to endorse State Senator Barbara Buono for Governor.

Shari Weiner, Chair of the WPCNJ Political Resources Committee said, "We are proud to announce that our Board met last night and unanimously voted to endorse Senator Barbara Buono for Governor. Senator Buono has a long and distinguished career as an advocate for all New Jerseyans-women, men and their families. She is a highly-qualified, well-respected candidate who brings the added value of diversity."
Senator Buono's public service record spans more than 30 years, as a public defender for the State Department of the Public Advocate, Metuchen Town Council Member and Police Commissioner and later as New Jersey's first woman Senate Majority Leader. Buono has displayed an unwavering commitment to the next generation of leaders through the founding of the Young Women's Leadership Program to advance young women interested in public service and politics.

Lisa Mizrahi Kaado, Executive Director of WPCNJ added, "In over 200 years, New Jersey has had only one female chief executive, and it is time for that to change. Senator Buono's experience, coupled with her fiercely independent nature make her an ideal candidate."
