“It’s an honor to continue serving the people of Bergen and Passaic counties in my new role in the New Jersey Senate,” said Senator Schepisi. “I’ll do my best to build upon Senator Cardinale’s legacy and continue the fight for affordability and opportunity for all of our constituents.”
Schepisi was selected to fill the remainder of the term of Senator Gerry Cardinale following his passing last month.
Prior to joining the Senate, Schepisi represented the 39th District for nine years in the General Assembly where she served as Deputy Republican Leader.
In the Senate, she will serve on the Health, Human Services & Senior Citizens Committee and the Labor Committee.
“As a working mother and a small business owner, I understand the many difficulties our families have faced during the pandemic,” Schepisi added. “After an unbelievably tough year, we have a lot of important work to do to get New Jersey back on track. I’m excited, ready, and looking forward to the opportunity.”
