DEPUTY SPEAKER OF GENERAL ASSEMBLY
(TRENTON) – Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto has appointed Assemblywoman Mila Jasey to the post of deputy speaker of the New Jersey General Assembly.
Jasey, of South Orange, was first sworn into the General Assembly in 2007.
“Mila has a genuine understanding of the fact that caring about people and working tirelessly to shape the future of one’s community are at the foundation of public service,” said Prieto (D-Bergen/Hudson). “Having observed her commitment to education, housing and several other issues over the years, I have full confidence that she will serve the Assembly well as a deputy speaker.”
As deputy speaker, Jasey may preside over Assembly sessions when business takes the Speaker away from the floor. She also will play a key role in fashioning the Assembly Democrats’ long-term legislative agenda.
