Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg has picked a former Republican office holder to serve on an ad hoc committee to examine instances of misogyny and sexual harassment in New Jersey politics.

Lisa Randall, a former Bergen County assemblywoman, has agreed to serve on the panel.

Randall was elected four times to the State Assembly from the 39th district and later served as Bergen County Counsel.  Gov. Christine Todd Whitman named her to the cabinet as Commissioner of Banking and Insurance and Gov. Jon Corzine later named ger to a seat on the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities.

In 2011, she was named acting Bergen County Clerk after Kathleen Donovan resigned to become County Executive.  She ran for a full term that year, but lost to Democrat John Hogan by 2,106 votes, 51%-49%.

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.

One thought on “Weinberg names ex-GOP assemblywoman to toxic workplace committee

  1. With widespread current harassment reported among the Leadership of The Monmouth County Democrats, including slander and decimation of my own campaign, did our Lieutenant Governor or Weinberg reach out to any of the women involved or affected by the Monmouth County Democrats harassment and slander ? Have any of these women been included in conversations or even been invited to serve on this panel?
    I believe that it is the experience of Katie Brennan in Jersey City and these latest allegations against Monmouth County Democrats that have fueled a movement for accountability. Including these women would not only be advantageous, but it would be most appropriate.
