Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver has been named to a committee investigate issues related to misogyny and sexual assault in New Jersey politics.
Oliver’s appointment was made by Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg, who formed the ad hoc panel earlier this month.
Last week, Oliver 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.
Oliver joins Weinberg and seven other women: veteran lobbyist Jeannine LaRue; political consultant Julie Roginsky; Patricia Teffenhart, executive director of the New Jersey Coalition Against Sexual Assault; lobbyist Sonia Delgado; former assemblywoman Lisa Randall (R-Westwood), former Murphy campaign and administration staffer Elizabeth Coulter, and lobbyist Sabeen Masih.
