I am writing you today as one of the Republican members of the New Jersey Bipartisan Coalition for Women's Appointments, a statewide, bipartisan group convened by the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers-New Brunswick. BCWA's purpose is to ensure the placement of well-qualified women in key positions throughout New Jersey government, regardless of who wins the gubernatorial election this year.  
After the November election, New Jersey's new governor will appoint hundreds of people to state boards and commissions.
 The New Jersey Bipartisan Coalition for Women's Appointments (BCWA) is looking for women to become appointed leaders in New Jersey.
The BCWA is immediately accepting résumés for a "talent bank" of women interested in being considered for appointments to the new gubernatorial administration in 2018.  
To submit your résumé, fill out the online biographical form for potential appointees. All résumés will be forwarded to the governor-elect's transition team and appointments office.   
If you require additional information about serving in an appointed office see the BCWA's frequently asked questions  about the appointments process in New Jersey. See also the list of New Jersey Boards and Commissions on the State of New Jersey web site.
We look forward to your submission.

Openings Available to Serve on New Jersey Commissions and Boards

Service on a New Jersey board or commission is a great way to contribute to the state and your community. There are a great number of boards and commissions to which the Governor makes appointments that deal with virtually all Department and public policy areas. Some appointments made by the Governor require the Advice and Consent of the State Senate, while others are made by the Direct Appointment of the Governor, requiring no action by the Senate.

Serving on a board or commission requires more than an individual's presence, it requires an unyielding contribution of expertise and time. It is important to realize that time commitment will vary depending on the ways in which a specific board or commission is operated.
We welcome your participation in this process, and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Please fill out the following form and remember to upload or fax a resume to (609)777-0331.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Appointments Office at (609)777-0251.
Keep your message brief, friendly, and to the point.

Mercer County GOP names Chairwoman

Former Hamilton Township Councilman

Former Hamilton Township Councilman Jack Lacy, a longtime member of the township Republican Party who was active for decades in local politics, has died.
Born and raised in Hamilton, Lacy was a 1956 graduate of Hamilton High School.  He graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in journalism and from St. Regis University with a Masters in Political Science.
After graduating college, he became a member and later president of the Hamilton Jaycees.
Alongside the other member of the “two Jacks,” former Republican Mayor Jack Rafferty, Lacy came to personify Hamilton government.
Lacy retired from the township council in 1999, but attempted another run for office in 2003, when he challenged Democrat Glen Gilmore for mayor.  Gilmore won the race by a wide margin and Lacy resumed his role as a mentor and steward for the Hamilton GOP.
“Jack was a true public servant who loved Hamilton Township,” said former state Sen. Tom Goodwin, who was handpicked by Lacy to run for township council in 2005.  “His expertise in municipal government was second to none.
”Lacy is survived by his wife Joanne and daughter Shannon, along with a granddaughter.
The funeral will be held on Thursday at 11 a.m. from the Buklad Yardville Memorial Chapel, 30 Yardville Allentown Rd. in Yardville. Burial will follow in Princeton Memorial Park in Robbinsville. Friends may call on Wednesday from 5 to 9 p.m. at the memorial chapel. Memorial contributions in Jack's memory may be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, NJ Metro Chapter, 1 Kalisa Way, Suite 205, Paramus, NJ 07652.

A Tribute to Assemblyman Alex DeCroce

Minority Leader Alex DeCroce has died

By Darryl R. Isherwood| January 10th, 2012 - 1:09am
DeCroce collapsed about 11 p.m. Monday in the legislative wing of the Statehouse following a late-night voting session. Shocked lawmakers, aides, and operatives milled around as EMTs attended to DeCroce, who was said to have been feeling ill before leaving the chamber. 
A mild-mannered leader, DeCroce was first elected to the Assembly in 1989 and served as deputy speaker from 1994 to 2001.
He also served as a Morris County freeholder from 1984 to 1989, serving for one year as freeholder director.
DeCroce was born in Morristown and lived in Parsippany-Troy Hills. He attended Seton Hall University and, aside from his legislative accomplishments, made his career as a Realtor at ERA Gallo & DeCroce.

Mr. Biondi suffered from cancer and perservered in the face of his illness, winning re-election on Tuesday night.
Born in Newark, the assemblyman settled in Hillsborough and kept his well-trafficked office in downtown Somerville. 
A throwback who enjoyed nurturing friendships on both sides of the aisle, Mr. Biondi was respected by his peers as a savvy politician.
The former mayor of Hillsborough presided over the 1990s construction of the township's impressive municipal building.
A great storyteller, vigorous conversationalist and horse lover, Mr. Biondi recalled how as a young man he used to take extended rides in Hunterdon County.
The proud Italian-American was a good-natured center of attention in Somerville taverns for the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade. 
An assemblyman since 1998, Mr. Biondi served as Republican Conference Leader through 2008 and as the Assembly's Assistant Republican Leader from 2002-2003.
