Hall Takes Oath of Office for the New Jersey General Assembly

Hall to Represent the 28th Legislative District

(TRENTON) – Essex County Deputy Clerk Garnet R. Hall received the oath of office from Assembly Speaker Craig J. Coughlin on Tuesday to become a new member of the New Jersey General Assembly. Along with Assemblywoman Cleopatra Tucker, Hall now represents the 28th Legislative District, which spans municipalities in Essex and Union counties.

“Garnet has proved to be a dedicated community leader, and I know she will be an invaluable addition to the Assembly Democratic Caucus this session,” said Speaker Coughlin (D-Middlesex). “I am pleased to have her join us in advocating for policies that reflect our shared values, such as equity and inclusion at all levels of government.”

Hall currently serves as the Vice-Chair of the Maplewood Democratic Committee and is a long-time Maplewood District Leader. Over the past 20 years, she has worked on nearly two dozen campaigns at the federal, state, and local levels.

Before joining the Essex County Clerk’s office, Hall had a celebrated, decades-long career in executive corporate sales.

“It is a great privilege to represent my community in the halls of the New Jersey State House,” said Assemblywoman Hall (D-Essex, Union). “I am thrilled to devote the next two years to understanding and overcoming the most significant challenges facing residents in my district.  I am committed to improving the lives of my constituents by seeking out common sense policy solutions that will positively impact the lives of all New Jerseyans.”

She and her husband George have lived in Maplewood for 35 years. They are the parents of two adult children and love spending time with their two grandchildren.
