InfoLinda Greenstein was elected to the New Jersey Senate in a November 2010 special election and then was reelected for her first full term in 2011. She served for six terms in the New Jersey General Assembly, a tenure that began in January 2000.

Senator Greenstein is the first woman to represent the 14th Legislative District in the Senate, which includes Cranbury, Jamesburg, Monroe, Plainsboro and Spotswood in Middlesex County and East Windsor, Hamilton, Hightstown and Robbinsville in Mercer County.

A fulltime Legislator, Senator Greenstein serves as Assistant Majority Leader of the State Senate as well as Chairwoman of the Law and Public Safety Committee. Senator Greenstein also serves as Vice-Chairwoman of the Environment and Energy Committee and as a member of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee and the Joint Committee on the Public Schools.

Senator Greenstein was educated at Vassar College, Johns Hopkins University, and the Georgetown University Law Center and is a specialist in disability law. Prior to becoming a legislator, she was a Senior Staff Attorney at the Community Health Law Project and served as a Deputy Attorney General in the Division of Criminal Justice in Trenton and as an Assistant District Attorney in Philadelphia. She also served as a Clinical Associate Professor at Seton Hall Law School.

During her ten-years in the General Assembly, then-Assemblywoman Greenstein served in a number of leadership roles. She was appointed Deputy Speaker of the General Assembly in 2006, following a four-year period serving as Assistant Majority Leader. She Chaired the Assembly Judiciary Committee and was a member of the Assembly Health and Senior Services Committee.

Senator Greenstein has a strong legislative track record of protecting New Jersey’s children and families. She was a prime sponsor of Caylee’s Law, which makes it a felony for failing to report the disappearance of a child within 24 hours; sponsored legislation expanding Megan’s Law, protecting children from known sex offenders; and authored Jessica Rogers’ Law which protects New Jerseyans against drivers with road rage. Senator Greenstein is a prime sponsor of New Jersey’s Paid Family Leave Law, which allows workers to apply for up to six weeks of paid leave to care for a newborn or newly adopted child, or a sick parent, spouse or child. She has also authored legislation to increase school bus safety.
