â€œShe has a love and knowledge of Hoboken that is key in helping address the needs and concerns of residents.
Caulfield, a fourth-generation Hoboken who has focused on constituent relations and correspondence, carries on a family legacy of public service to Hoboken” both her grandfather and great-grandfather worked for the city.
â€œI feel so blessed to have been given the opportunity to continue this legacy of service/ I have tremendous pride in being from Hoboken, and I believe City Hall has an obligation to make our city more responsive to the needs of residents,” she said.
“I look forward to serving all of the cityâ€™s residents, paying close attention to the needs of our lower-income residents and those who have been impacted by our cityâ€™s rapid growth.â€
Prior to working for Booker, Caulfield interned for the New York City Department of Education and canvassed for the Human Rights Campaign. Caulfield earned her B.A. in Political Studies and Human Rights from Bard College.
