Who’s Leading Now?

This year, working with the Support Center for Nonprofit Management’s Executive Search and Transition Management service, the Board of New Jersey Policy Perspectives named Deborah Howlett as their new president.

Deborah succeeded Mary E. Forsberg, who had been serving as interim president and will continue with the organization in her previous position as research director.


“Among a strong field of candidates for this position, Deborah’s diligent and enthusiastic grasp of NJPP’s mission stood out,” said Tim Carden, chairman of the NJPP board of trustees and head of the executive search committee.

“Her professional background and thoughtful approach to research and advocacy of progressive policy are just what NJPP sought in an ideal candidate moving forward.”

Previously Deborah served as director of communications for Governor Jon S. Corzine.

She established a new media component in the governor’s communications office and worked closely on budget priorities as the administration dealt with the fallout from the worst national economic crisis since the Great Depression.

She was also directly involved in the Corzine administration’s efforts to pass marriage-equality legislation.

NJPP is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization established in 1997 to bring a progressive voice to the public policy debate in New Jersey.
