PolitickerNJ extends congratulations and a joyous welcome to New Jersey’s youngest politico, Willow Mallory Louvenia Spencer of Essex County.
Willow and her mother, veteran Assemblywoman L. Grace Spencer (D-29), Newark, are resting tonight after the newborn came into the world at 7:15 p.m. on this spring day, 3/27, in 2015 AD.
“Say hello to my daughter,” Spencer wrote on Facebook tonight, and posted the accompanying picture.
An attorney from the South Ward first elected to the General Assembly in 2007, former prosecutor for the City of Newark, avid outdoorswoman, sportswoman, soccer player and cyclist, Spencer chairs the Assembly Environment and Solid Waste Committee and serves as deputy speaker for the New Jersey State Legislature.
We wish Willow and her mother a safe trip home and Godspeed at the start of a great adventure.
