Pou (D-Paterson), a state senator and president of the National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators, will be honored as the Latina Trailblazer for her dedication to public service and advocacy for Hispanic communities.

Maldonado, the president of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, will be recognized as the Latino Trailblazer for his leadership and dedication.

Chamber CEO Carlos Medina said the honors are well deserved.

“As an organization that promotes the growth and success of Hispanic businesses and entrepreneurs, we are proud to honor Sen. Pou and Mr. Maldonado as trailblazers in our community,” he said. “Their achievements and dedication inspire us all to continue working towards a brighter future for all Latinos in New Jersey.”
