NJ’s first all female ticket announces 2013 run

Senator Jennifer Beck, Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini and Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande announced their bids for re-election to the New Jersey legislature. The three legislators represent the 11th Legislative District in Monmouth County.

“I am very proud and excited to start another campaign season,” said Beck, who was first elected to the Assembly in 2005 and moved to the Senate in 2007. “We have an incredible ticket and I am honored to serve with these women. In the past two years New Jersey has seen some amazing and historic reforms, but our job is not done. I hope the voters in the 11th District will choose to send us back to Trenton in 2014 to continue what we started.”

Beck, Angelini and Casagrande were first elected as a ticket to the 11th District in 2011. Beck, a former Red Bank Councilwoman, currently sits on the Senate Budget Committee, Casagrande, an attorney, sits on the Assembly Appropriations Committee. Angelini, the Executive Director of Prevention First, serves as the Deputy Conference Leader and sits on the Health and Senior Services Committee.

“Under the direction of Governor Chris Christie we have made great progress in reducing the cost of government which has made our state increasingly unaffordable,” Angelini said.  “I look forward to going back to Trenton to continue fighting to improve our economy, reduce spending and cut taxes”

“All three of us have had a tremendous four years following Governor Christie’s leadership and delivering results to the people of Monmouth County. But our work is far from over,” explained Casagrande. “I am proud to declare my candidacy for re-election to the 11th District Assembly. It is my hope that the people will honor me with the opportunity to keep moving New Jersey forward.”
