“Sue Tisiker was a dear friend and she ran our district office operations well for many years,” said Thompson (R-12). “While I’m deeply saddened by Sue’s passing, I’m extremely thankful that someone as capable and experienced as Leigh will join us to help maintain the superior services that Sue was known for by our constituents.”

Maris previously served as Chief of Staff to former Assembly members Amy Handlin and Steve Corodemus. She also worked as a Budget Committee analyst and Research Associate for the General Assembly in Trenton.

Additionally, she served as Chief of Staff to former Monmouth County Sheriff Kim Guadagno, and was the Associate Vice President of Health Policy and Research for the New Jersey Council of Teaching Hospitals.

“Leigh has significant experience working in the Legislature, with Monmouth County, and in various policy roles,” added Thompson. “She’ll be a strong addition to our team and will ensure that our residents continue to receive the first-rate constituent services they need and deserve during this difficult time.”
