Press release — As part of New Jersey’s only all-female delegation, Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini led a panel discussion on women legislative leaders today at the annual New Jersey Governor’s Conference for Women.

Mary Pat Angelini

“New Jersey has many talented women who have become strong leaders in politics and business. This was a great opportunity to highlight our state’s diversity and discuss the challenges that still exist,” Angelini, R-Monmouth, said. “It was an honor to lead this panel, especially when there are so many successful women in the Legislature to choose from.”

Angelini was joined on the panel by Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande, R-Monmouth, who has focused the past year on improving the opportunities for women in the work force.

“This panel reinforced the fact that although there’s still room for improvement, our state is a great place for women to lead, whether in the work place or State House,” Casagrande said. “Conferences like this will help make New Jersey state the leading state in the country for women to achieve success.”

Casagrande and Angelini represent the 11th District in Monmouth County with Sen. Jennifer Beck. The Republican trio makes up the first and only all-female delegation in New Jersey history.

“Our delegation is just one example of how far women have come in politics,” Beck, R-Monmouth, said. “Our society has reached the point in which the only thing that matters is a person’s talent, intellect and hard work and there is no state that embodies that more than New Jersey.”

The annual conference was held today at the War Memorial in Trenton. Gov. Chris Christie and Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno were featured speakers.

Angelini praised for helping open Asbury Park

From: Asbury Park PressThe following is an excerpt from a letter to the editor written by Anselm Fusco, Vice President of Madison Marquette, of Asbury Park:

With our boardwalk open and people once again flocking to our beaches and businesses, we are incredibly proud to have been part of the effort to ensure Asbury Park was open by Memorial Day weekend and ready for the recent visits by Gov. Christie and President Obama.

Achieving this goal would not have been possible without the efforts of many dedicated people, including various elected officials, city employees, numerous volunteers and our own staff.

Mary Pat Angelini

One person who deserves singular praise is Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini.

When we ran into an obstacle that threatened our ability to open boardwalk amenities in time for Memorial Day, Assemblywoman Angelini took immediate action to help ensure that JCP&L was able to perform the necessary work to allow us to open. Her efforts were directly responsible for the resolution of an issue that would have made it impossible to fully open the boardwalk by this vital tourism weekend.

Angelini: Smoking E-Cigarettes Inside is Illegal

From: Patch Yes, smoking e-cigarettes inside is illegal. Bill A4227/4228 was the first of its kind in the entire country, and a copy of the legislation is attached to this story.

Mary Pat Angelini

“The legislation was introduced in 2009 and voted on unanimously,” said Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini (R-11), one of the sponsors who helped get the law passed. “Both the Senate and the Assembly voted in favor of the ban.”

“No one knows what’s in e-cigarettes,” Angelini said. “Different manufacturers use different vapors. People think it’s not an issue because they’re not inhaling nicotine, but there might be something in there that’s worse for you than nicotine.”

She said further studies on what is in e-cigarettes need to be done. She also takes issue with the way they are marketed.

“Manufacturers use flavors to entice young people to smoke to try and get them to become addicted to smoking,” said Angelini, who added there is some question as to whether e-cigarettes are addictive.

Angelini: Legalizing marijuana would send the wrong message to kids

Mary Pat Angelini

From: The Times of Trenton: The following is an excerpt from Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini’s op-ed against legalizing marijuana, visit The Times of Trenton for the complete piece:

It’s best explained with a twist on the iconic “Field of Dreams” phrase: “If you build it, they will come.” When it comes to marijuana, the facts show that “If you legalize it, young people will use and abuse it.”

It’s seems obvious that more people will use a substance deemed legal and presumably safe by government than they will use an illegal and presumably dangerous one. This logical conclusion has serious consequences for young people.

The National Survey on Drug Use and Health, which is funded by the federal government’s Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, released a study earlier this year that proves that the less dangerous young people consider a particular substance, the more they use it.

Angelini: Keep youth celebrations alcohol-free

Mary Pat Angelini

From: Asbury Park Press Excerpt from Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini’s ope-ed offering advice to keep teens healthy during prom season:

Young people are bombarded with messages about alcohol every day. Unfortunately, many of these messages are not reality-based. The reality is that underage drinking can lead to car crashes, drowning, personal injury accidents, unplanned pregnancies and school failure. Problems and costs associated with underage drinking in New Jersey total close to $1.5 billion.

The messages parents send to children about alcohol are crucial. Many parents allow their teenage children to drink alcohol at home in an effort to teach them how to drink responsibly. They may have good intentions, but the results can be deadly. What parents do, in fact, is facilitate their child’s comfort with alcohol by sending a dangerous mixed message. Too many adults think underage drinking is harmless or worse — acceptable if parents take cars keys away from youth.

Every year we hear about teens dying from alcohol-related poisonings and drownings that occur after adults provide alcohol to youth. Nobody has the right to endanger the welfare of someone else’s children by providing them with alcohol.

Individuals who purchase, provide or pour alcohol for anyone under age 21, except their own child, are breaking the law and can be charged under state or municipal statutes. Underage drinking is illegal, has long-term health consequences and is a factor in all five of the leading causes of death among youth. We want this to be a happy prom and commencement season; underage drinking isn’t part of that picture.

Proms, graduations and the parties that follow make this a perfect time to talk to children about alcohol and to set up some prevention strategies:

“Mayor Franco will be missed by all,” said Beck. “Harry was a notable figure in Deal and throughout the county. He worked hard to find innovative ways to improve his town and make it a great place to live. Mayor Franco was a tieless advocate for the needs of his community and always put the interests of his residents first.”

 

Mary Pat Angelini

“Harry Franco is the personification of a true public servant,” said Angelini. “For more than 40 years he dedicated his time, energy and passion to improving his community.

Beck, Casagrande and Angelini Praise Signing of Bill Supporting Monmouth Regional Bond

Monmouth County legislators Senator Jennifer Beck, Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande and Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini thanked Governor Christie for signing their legislation into law that would validate a successful bond proposal by Monmouth Regional High School.

“This bill validates the bond authorization that was approved by the voters and ensures that important and much needed renovations to Monmouth Regional High School will move forward,” Beck explained. “We met with Monmouth Regional officials to address this issue as soon as it arose, I’m glad the Governor signed this bill expeditiously and I’m happy we were able to help.”

In November of 2012 voters in Eatontown, Tinton Falls and Shrewsbury passed a bond issue proposed by the Monmouth Regional High School District. That bond issue was subject to a legal challenge because the school board did not properly provide the statutorily required notice of 60 days to the county clerk to put the bond on the ballot. That requirement was a change from the previous year’s school election.

Caroline Casagrande

“By signing this bill today essential projects at the High School can advance” says Casagrande. “Those projects include renovating science classrooms and girls’ locker rooms as well as the removal of asbestos. We are grateful for the Governor’s swift action on this legislation.”

“I am pleased that Monmouth Regional will now be able to move forward with the necessary improvements to their school facilities,” said Angelini. “This measure ensures that the will of the voters of this school district cannot be overturned based on a minor technicality.”
