Rutgers alumni rank among top 100 figures in NJ politics

November 29, 2017

With a close to the 2017 political election season, PolitickerNJ and InsiderNJ released their power lists to rank who has the most momentum among New Jersey politicians and several people ranked were Rutgers alumni.

Both the PolitickerNJ Power List and InsiderNJ 100 Power aim to give readers a sense of who are the top party leaders and operatives, lobbyists and activists, lawyers and media figures, who play a major role in shaping politics within the state.

New additions to the lists include Rutgers alumnus Shariq Ahmad, former staffer for Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) and Marc Pfeiffer, senior policy fellow at Rutgers’ Bloustein Local Government Research Center.
