Loretta Weinberg’s 2013 Power List

“There continues to be an under-representation of women in positions  of power and inadequate recognition of those women who have achieved power and influence,” Senate Majority Leader Weinberg said. I want to give these women the credit they deserve and the recognition they too often fail to receive. In alphabetical order, here is  my list of the 75 most powerful and influential women in New Jersey civic affairs.”
