MORRIS COUNTY — The freshman Democratic congresswoman, Mikie Sherrill, held an open house on Monday, January 14 during the first “Monday with Mikie” event that packed supporters into her new office suite located at 8 Wood Hollow Road.
“An accessible, centrally-located district office is incredibly important to me and my staff,” said Sherrill. “I am looking forward to welcoming residents to their New Jersey office and continuing an open dialogue with the community.”
“I had promised one of first things I would do is have a Monday with Mikie. I want to make sure I’m as accessible as possible,” said Sherrill, with the first town hall meeting set for next Tuesday, January 22, at 7:00 p.m. in the Hanover Community Center.
When the shutdown is resolved, she plans to press hard for the Gateway Tunnel project, and work with New Jersey’s delegation to reverse the federal cap on state and local tax deductions, she said.
Parsippany-Troy Hills Mayor Michael Soriano said “I am elated to have Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill open her congressional office in our town. Aside from the fact that the people of Parsippany overwhelmingly showed their support for Mikie last November. Parsippany is a smart choice because we sit at the crossroads of North Jersey.”
“I’m really glad I had the opportunity to meet Mikie Sherrill at “Monday with Mikie.” Listening to her speak at the event strengthened my confidence in both her leadership and convictions. It’s refreshing to have an accessible representative who will bring the concerns of all constituents, even high school students like me, to Washington. I look forward to following everything she accomplishes for NJ District 11″ said Parsippany High School Senior Bella Rocco.
Monday’s crowd of about 100 people included Morris County Democratic Chairman Chip Robinson, Parsippany Mayor Michael Soriano, Former Parsippany Mayor Mimi Letts, Parsippany Area Chamber of Commerce Board Member Nicolas Limanov and Morristown’s First Lady Mary Dougherty, a realtor who helped Sherrill find the Parsippany office space.
