Senator Holly Schepisi will receive the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce's Legislator of the Year Award during an event on October 11 in Brielle.
Schepisi, an influential Senator representing Legislative District 39, will be joined by honorees from the public and private sectors, and will be honored for being a "collaborator who seeks bi-partisan support on issues benefitting New Jersey's economy" during the Chamber's Legislative and Business Awards Reception at the Manasquan River Golf Club.
"I am extremely honored and grateful to the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce for this prestigious award," Schepisi said. "All New Jerseyans deserve the benefits of a strong, vibrant state economy, lower property taxes, and reduced government spending. I am proud of the work we have done to help grow our economy, and I will continue to lead the effort in making our state more affordable for middle class families."
Schepisi is the Senate Republican Conference Leader and is a member of the Community and Urban Affairs Committee as well as the Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee. She has consistently advocated for lower property taxes to reduce the cost of living in New Jersey so that more residents are able to live and retire in their home state.
