Over the past month, Mark Alexander has begun to fill out his campaign team - adding a Field Director and Women's Outreach Coordinator.

Alexander's running for the state senate in LD 34 against incumbent State Sen. Nia Gill (D-34). 

Andre Richardson of The Advance Group

Richardson will serve as Field Director for the 34th District Democratic Primary. Richardson will oversee a paid and volunteer canvass operation beginning in the new year. Richardson is a veteran political operative, most recently serving as the Field Director for the successful run of Congressman-Elect Hakeem Jeffries in New York's 8th Congressional District. He has also worked on several campaigns in New Jersey, including as an Essex County Field Director for the Corzine campaign in '09, Political Director for the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, and Community Organizer for the SEIU District 1199. 

Tiffani Llerandi of the Lotus Consulting Group

Llerandi is a former Finance Director for Senator Robert Menendez. She will serve as a liaison to women's organizations across the 34th District and New Jersey. Llerandi will be advising Alexander on key women's issues and organizing outreach events over the course of the next seven months.  

"I'm honored to have these two talented Democrats join my campaign team," Alexander said. "Both Andre and Tiffani are going to be instrumental in helping us achieve our goal of reaching all voters in the 34th District with our message of change and new leadership."
