Garden State Capitol Reception with NJ Leaders
Attending our annual Garden State Capitol Reception were over 125 New Jerseyans, including five NJ Congressmen and Senator Menendez,, Hill staff, college alumni and our wonderful and loyal NJSS and NJ Group members. (see photos)
The NJ Group cohosted the event with us. We "welcomed" our newest member, Rep. Jon Runyan, a tradition for NJSS, and we were excited that former NJ Congressmen Jim Florio, Bill Hughes and William Martini agreed to attend and be among our honorees. Many of their former staffers took advantage of the event to have a reunion.
Thank you Senator Menendez, and Congressmen Smith, Pallone, Garrett, Runyan and Lance for attending.
Also, our appreciation to the Lance Office and John Lawrence, Chief of Staff toHouse Democratic Leader Pelosi for helping with the event arrangements. CoS Lawrence was also a special guest, along with Dona DeLeon, director of the Governor's Washington Office and Richard Sarles, General Manager of the Washington Area Metropolitan Transit Authority. We were pleased that Suresh Kumar, director general of the US & Foreign Commercial Service, was also able to join us.
Everyone lucky enough to be from the Garden State or have a connection to New Jersey was welcome. There was no charge, but please join NJSS for $20 a year to make sure you never miss an event like this
