Last week’s “bomb cyclone” Nor’easter was no match for an annual event hosted by the New Jersey Apartment Association, which drew some three dozen lawmakers and more than 150 attendees despite torrential rain and bruising winds.
The NJAA’s Political Action Committee held its annual legislative reception on Oct. 16, providing a venue for its members to network and meet face to face with top leaders in Trenton. The yearly fundraiser took place at the Pleasantdale Chateau in West Orange, attracting a strong crowd and lawmakers from the farthest corners of the state, despite the weather.
“We are thrilled to see a continuing trend of a deeper and broader interest from legislators on how multifamily property operations are impacting our state,” said David Brogan, the NJAA’s executive director. “Nearly three dozen legislators traveled from near and far in a Nor’easter to meet with our members, and we are truly appreciative.”
The reception is part of the NJAA’s year-round efforts to advocate for the state’s multifamily sector and highlight its impact on both New Jersey’s economy and the overall quality of life for more than 1 million renters.
