Lisa is an OB/GYN who has lived in Mendham Township for 13 years, with her husband and her two children. She graduated from Brown University, and received her M.D. from Hahnemann University in Philadelphia. She practiced medicine in Providence, RI, and at Overlook Hospital in Summit. After recovering from a battle with Lyme disease, which solidified her position as a staunch advocate for affordable health care, Lisa is currently semi-retired.
Lisa: “The election has been a call to action for me, as it has for so many others. I believe the action needed starts here, and starts now. With the potential repeal of the ACA, hundreds of thousands of people in New Jersey are at risk of losing healthcare coverage. We need as many legislators in Trenton who support affordable, universal health insurance for all of us. I am excited to bring my experience as a physician and a patient to bear for the citizens of the 25th legislative district.”

Richard: “I believe that the status of the State’s finances is in disarray as a direct result of the decisions made by the incumbents. The ever increasing debt obligations and the failure to fund the pensions properly are the responsibilities of elected officials and they have failed their constituents. The state needs elected officials who understand that they have a fiduciary responsibility not only for today’s residents but for the future residents as well.”
