Gina LaPlaca for Assembly LD-8
Gina has dreamed of running for office since she was 9 years old, when she watched her first presidential debates in her parents' living room during the Bush-Dukakis race.
She has been helping Democrats get elected at every level since 1997, and by her senior year of college, as she watched the Bush v Gore election unfold, she knew that just standing on the sidelines would never be sufficient. She has devoted her life and her career to engaging in the public policy arena and serving my community in any way she could.
It has never been more important for smart, experienced and dedicated individuals to step up and put their names on the ballot. Gina's extensive experience, partnered with her unique skills and abilities, makes her the ideal candidate to serve as Assemblywoman for New Jersey's 8th Legislative District.
Gina's educational achievements include a BA in Political Science/Communications from The University of Pennsylvania, and a JD from Fordham University School of Law.
