A Few Words from Representative Tom Malinowski
“I was born in Communist Poland at the height of the Cold War, where I lived with my mother until I was 6 years old. One of my earliest memories is of my mom paying off a corrupt official to get the passports that would allow us to come to America. As young as I was, I understood I was living in a place where some people had all the power and could do whatever they pleased to people who had none. That’s a feeling I’ve never forgotten.
I grew up in Central Jersey, going to public schools, playing baseball, and hoping that someday I could give something back to the country that gave me my freedom. I got that chance while serving President Clinton on his National Security Council working to end some of the 20th Century’s bloodiest humanitarian crises, as the chief advocate for Human Rights Watch, leading a bipartisan effort to end the Bush Administration’s use of torture, and as an Assistant Secretary of State under President Obama, standing up to dictators like Putin and Kim Jong-Un.”

Andy Meissner and his wife Christine have lived in Mount Olive since 1984, first on Flanders-Drakestown Road and then beginning in 1995, in Flanders Crossing. Andy and Christine raised a daughter and son in Mount Olive and are now proud grandparents. Andy retired from AT&T last year after 35 years in leadership positions in Marketing, Program Management and Information Systems.
Andy’s passion for politics began in 1968 when his family saw both Richard Nixon and Hubert Humphrey campaign for president at a local airport on Long Island. As a teenager, Andy canvassed with local assembly and town council candidates and was elected to several positions in high school and college. Since 2008, Andy has been actively involved in voter registration, phone banking and canvassing. Andy’s priorities for the Mount Olive Democrats are to continue to build our organization, provide a home for people to share their passions for our country and our democratic values, re-elect Congressman Tom Malinowski, and provide opportunities to participate and contribute in as many ways as possible. Andy would like to meet with as many people as possible either over coffee or while canvassing through each of your districts (his real passion!) to talk about our experiences, unique talents and suggestions on how we can all be successful in 2020 and beyond.

Judi moved to Mount Olive in 2015, after residing in Califon, NJ for twenty-five years. She has two daughters, a son and nine adorable grandchildren. Judi worked in the healthcare industry for thirty years, ranging from veterinary medicine to certified ophthalmology assistant.
While always interested in politics, Judi’s passion began with the Barack Obama campaign and has grown with time. Being a part of the Mount Olive Democrats since 2017 has been informative and exciting. The experience has provided the opportunity to meet and engage with our neighbors and their concerns.
Judi is proud of the work that was accomplished in the successful election of Tom Malinowski in 2018. She is looking forward to helping the Mount Olive Democratic Committee grow and winning 2020 for our candidates.
Sheri was born in Brooklyn, NY (Sheepshead Bay), moved to Long Island when she was 5 years old and came to Mount Olive 9 years ago when the company Sheri was working for offered her a promotional position in NJ. Sheri was looking for a new construction town home in a beautiful area with a strong sense of community. When Sheri found Morris Chase under development in Budd Lake, she knew this was her place and she has been very happy here!
Sheri has one sister who lives in West Orange (who knew they would both end up in NJ) and lots of great friends across the country.
Sheri lives with her two wonderful 100 lb. fur-babies, Jessie (age 6) and Roxie (age 4). They are both German Shepherd rescues from Alabama and were extremely happy the country voted to put Champ and Major in the White House in 2020!
