ROI Influencers Power List 2024: Super 60
Craig Coughlin; Nick Scutari
Assembly speaker (D-Woodbridge); State Senate president (D-Clark)
Coughlin, now the longest-serving Assembly speaker as he enters his fourth term in the role, has emerged as a powerful force (see his efforts on the STAY New Jersey program). He is a strong and consistent backer of programs to help with food insecurity. Scutari, who rose to the position after an election upset, has shown he is up to the task, willing to battle on issues with the speaker and the governor.
