Assemblywoman Linda Carter (D, 22nd District) recently participated in a tour of Metro Rahway, a luxury redevelopment project near the Rahway NJ Transit station. Jeffrey Garfinkel of Sterling Properties Group and Shane Sorrano of AST Development Corporation led the tour.
The tour offered the Assemblywoman the chance to gain a more thorough understanding of the challenges faced every day in the multifamily industry. The tour also presented an opportunity for a dialogue on challenges faced by members who focus on redevelopment of both urban and transit areas.
“This week I had the privilege of touring Metro Rahway with members of New Jersey Apartment Association (NJAA). This beautiful property, located in the heart of Rahway, is just one of the many successful examples of how collaboration between the State Legislature and NJAA can help transform communities in our State. I was especially reminded of the many steps that go into projects of this magnitude. It is my hope that the Legislature can work with the industry in a bipartisan manner to address the issues NJAA members face. I look forward to working with the NJAA to address these issues which will help us move forward to ensure that quality housing is available to all New Jersey families,” said Assemblywoman Carter.
In 2018, Assemblywoman Carter was sworn in to replace the late Assemblyman Jerry Green who had served for more than two decades as Assembly Housing Committee Chairman. Assemblywoman Carter is a teacher in Passaic County and prior to her elevation to the Assembly, she served as a Union County Freeholder. The 22nd Legislative District includes parts of Middlesex, Somerset and Union counties.
