A former Murphy for governor campaign staffer and administration official has joined Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg’s committee to review issues related to misogyny and sexual assault in New Jersey politics.

Elizabeth Coulter served as deputy director of the state Department of Health’s Office of Women’s Health before leaving to become the director of public health for Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New Jersey.  She is a former aide to Rep. Rush Holt.

In the Murphy administration, Coulter worked on issues related to gender-based violence prevention.

Earlier this week, Weinberg named former assemblywoman Lisa Randall (R-Westwood) to her ad hoc panel.

Already serving on the Weinberg committee: veteran lobbyist Jeannine LaRue; political consultant Julie Roginsky; Patricia Teffenhart, executive director of the New Jersey Coalition Against Sexual Assault; and lobbyist Sonia Delgado.

Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver has submitted seventeen names to Weinberg of individuals Gov. Phil Murphy’s administration wants to be on the panel, including herself and First Lady Tammy Murphy.

Coulter’s appointment should alleviate concerns by Murphy loyalists that the governor doesn’t have representation on the committee.
