State Sen. Vin Gopal will host a Women’s History Month event celebrating some of his district’s women officeholders Friday.
“During Women’s History Month, it’s important not only to recognize the many contributions that women have made in the past, but also to honor the accomplishments of the incredible women who blazing a trail for future generations to follow,” Gopal said. “As we speak, women across our state are making history through their courage, passion, and inspirational leadership.”
Among those being honored are Gopal runningmate Assemblywoman Joann Downey, Freehold Mayor Barbara McMorrow and Asbury Park Deputy Mayor Amy Quinn.
“It’s a privilege to serve alongside one such leader in Assemblywoman Joann Downey, whose hard work on behalf of the residents of New Jersey is an inspiration to all who would enter a career of public service,” Gopal said. “I am grateful every day for the outspoken voices and perspectives of the women that this event will honor, and look forward to the great things that they will continue to achieve.”
