The political news website Insider NJ is out with its NJ Power 100 rankings, and NJBIA’s President and CEO Michele Siekerka is ranked 22nd.
“The President of the New Jersey Business and Industry Association does not mind routinely throwing a sharp elbow in defense of her home state’s small business owners,” Insider NJ says.
The annual list ranks the main players, bosses, activists and influencers from across New Jersey’s political landscape. It excludes elected officials, but otherwise considers a broad range of political disciplines for distinction.
As editor Max Pizarro explains, “While you will find here new names and faces that emerged on the greens and marts of the public domain in a year when New Jersey voters decided to exercise their franchise, we have also continued to consider – and simultaneously prioritize – those inside game players in Trenton, who operate in the shadows and half shadows of government.”
