A Dem Challenger to Rep. Chris Smith Steps Forward


Today, Monmouth County Democrat Lorna Phillipson announced her candidacy for New Jersey’s 4th Congressional District, currently served by veteran Republican U.S. Rep. Chris Smith (R-4).

A former bank trading executive, venture capitalist, adjunct professor, strategy consultant, and unsuccessful Assembly candidate, Phillipson says key strengths are strategic planning, financial policies and procedures, leadership development, international business and trade, workplace innovation, and corporate governance.

The Democrat attended Manasquan High School, Montclair State, and Wharton’s Aresty Institute.
