Earlier today, over 100 officials attended our second annual Women in Government Day event in Princeton. They were privileged to hear speeches by Attorney General Paula Dow and Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver. In addition, special Leadership Awards were presented to elected and professional women who have excelled in public service. And this year’s Distinguished Service Award was presented to the Municipal Court Administrators Association of New Jersey. (See Photos Below)
