News from Assemblywoman Rodriguez

For Release:
January 18, 2008

Assemblywoman Caridad Rodriguez
P: (201) 854-0900

Assemblywoman Also Chosen to Serve on Transportation Committee

(WEST NEW YORK) - Assemblywoman Cary Rodriguez will serve as the new
vice chairwoman of the Assembly Human Services Committee for the
2008-2009 legislative session. She also will serve as a member of the
Assembly Transportation, Public Works and Independent Authorities

Rodriguez (D-Hudson) was one of the 12 new Assembly Democratic members
recently sworn in during the 213th Legislature's organization ceremonies
on January 8.

Assembly Speaker Joseph J. Roberts, Jr. recently announced Rodriguez's
appointments as part of the new membership list for the Assembly's 22
standing reference committees.

The Assembly Majority leadership team - which includes Speaker Roberts
(D-Camden), Majority Leader Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-Mercer), and
Speaker Pro Tempore Jerry Green (D-Union) - selected Rodriguez for the
vice chairwoman's post.

"Cary Rodriguez's constituency experience in local government will be of
tremendous value for a committee that handles child welfare policy,
Medicaid and assistance for the disenfranchised," said Roberts. "Her
appointment to the Transportation committee also will give Hudson County
a new voice on issues like the new trans-Hudson tunnel and Manhattan
ferry service."

As vice chairwoman of the Human Services Committee, Rodriguez will
handle issues concerning the status of women, the welfare of children
and ways to foster the growth of families.

"We must provide needed services to people who cannot take care of
themselves and who need our help.," said Rodriguez. "It is about
spending wisely and in a cost-effective manner."

As a member of the Transportation Committee, Rodriguez will help work on
legislative issues affecting all segments of state transportation,
including bridge and highway construction, motor vehicle inspections,
expansion of light-rail train systems, and management of the toll road

During the legislative process, committees and their chairpersons review
and reconfigure bills and take testimony from people and organizations
that may be affected by the legislation. Bills that make their way
through the committee process can then be posted for floor votes by the
full Assembly.

Mrs. Rodriguez was born in Cuba and came to the United States with her
parents and sister in 1962. She has been a Hudson County resident ever

She holds the distinction as the first woman town commissioner in West
New York's history.

She served as executive assistant to former West New York Mayor Albio
Sires from 1996 to 2006. Sires is a former Assembly Speaker and is now a
member of the U.S. House of Representatives, serving New Jersey's 13th
Congressional District in Hudson, Middlesex, and Essex counties.

Rodriguez served eight years as the coordinator for West New York's
Municipal Alliance Committee against Drugs and Alcohol.

She was the recipient of the American Red Cross Clara Barton Award for
Meritorious Volunteer Service and she has been granted special
recognition by the senior citizen community of West New York.

Rodriguez represents the 33rd Legislative District, which consists of
Guttenberg, Hoboken, Union City, Weehawken, West New York and a portion
of Jersey City - all in Hudson County.
