Another First: Susan Shin Angulo

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Sometimes it's the little things that might actually be bigger than we think:

Newly elected Township Councilwoman Susan Shin Angulo took part in her inaugural Council meeting tonight, and, in being sworn into office, made an historic debut as New Jersey’s first Korean-American woman to win a seat in government. According to the Center for American Women and Politics in Rutgers University’s Eagleton Institute of Politics, she is the only female government official of Korean descent currently serving in any of the state’s elected public offices.
