CONSTITUTIONAL OFFICERS ASSOCIATION OF NJ HOSTS GENERAL SESSION MEETING FEATURING MICAH RASMUSSEN OF THE REBOVICH INSTITUTE FOR NJ POLITICS

WEST TRENTON, NJ – The Constitutional Officers Association of New Jersey (COANJ) held its General Session Meeting on March 10 at the Trenton Country Club and welcomed Micah Rasmussen, Director of the Rebovich Institute for New Jersey Politics at Rider University, as its guest speaker.

Rasmussen advised the County Clerks, Surrogates, Sheriffs, and Registers of Deeds and Mortgages from across the State about the redistricting process in New Jersey for both the New Jersey legislative and congressional districts. This information was pertinent to the Constitutional Officers and especially to the State’s County Clerks who oversee a large portion of the elections process and are responsible for the printing of all ballots.

“The Constitutional Officers Association of New Jersey was thrilled to have Micah Rasmussen serve as our General Session guest speaker and we thank him for taking the time to educate us of the recent restricting in New Jersey,” said COANJ President, Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon. “The topic was especially relevant for our organization, and Mr. Rasmussen gave us an excellent overview of the changes that will be taking place in our respective counties.”

Rasmussen has been involved in New Jersey public affairs for more than two decades and has more than 15 years of experience as an adjunct professor at Brookdale Community College. He also runs the New Jersey Model Congress, a civics education program that he founded.

In addition to hearing from Rasmussen, COANJ members held breakout session meetings with the Surrogates, Sheriffs, and County Clerks and Registers to discuss numerous issues facing their respective offices.

COANJ was established in 1920 as a collaborative effort for the Constitutional Officers of the State of New Jersey to improve and maintain their respective County government services, to share information, and to discuss and advocate for legislation. COANJ membership includes the County Clerks, Surrogates, Sheriffs, and Registers of Deeds and Mortgages from across the State.
