Former Assemblyman Jeff Warsh Hired as NJLBA Legislative Agent - View PDF

As a key component of the NJLBA's overall rebranding and refurbishing campaign, former
Assemblyman Jeff Warsh has been hired as the NJLBA's new Legislative Agent. Warsh served in the New Jersey General Assembly from 1992-1996, serving as Chairman of the Assembly Regulatory Oversight Committee and as a Member of the Assembly Transportation Committee. An attorney with over 25 years of experience in representing members of the alcoholic beverage industry, Warsh served as a Staff Attorney in the NJ Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control from 1985-1987. Governor Whitman appointed Warsh to serve as Executive Director of NJ Transit, where he served from 1999-2002, including the tumultuous events of 9/11 and its aftermath. Warsh received numerous awards for his service in the Legislature and at NJ Transit. Warsh is currently a Partner with New Jersey's largest governmental and public affairs firm – MBI GluckShaw. The full resources of MBI GluckShaw's considerable stable of lobbyists is at the NJLBA's disposal.

As the NJLBA's Legislative Agent, Warsh reports to Executive Director Diane Weiss and to the NJLBA Board of Directors. As the NJLBA's legislative point man, Warsh is responsible for representing our interests in the State House with both houses of the Legislature and with the Governor's Office. With bills pending to encourage grocery stores and big box retailers to dominate the sale of package goods in New Jersey and other bills to allow out-of-state interests to direct ship to New Jersey consumers as well as bills allowing pocket licenses to be transferred from any town in New Jersey to any other town in New Jersey - just to name a few major challenges - the legislative environment is a very difficult one for the New Jersey hospitality sector, already reeling from the severe and entrenched recession. The challenges are very real and the NJLBA is managing the political environment with a major makeover, of which Warsh's hiring is one major aspect.

"It is my honor and privilege to serve as the NJLBA Legislative Agent," said Warsh. "I have literally spent my entire life in the alcoholic beverage industry. My grandfather and father both spent their entire careers in the industry and I have worked in a variety of capacities in the wholesale tier since I was a teenager. I have nothing but respect and admiration for the men and women who dedicate themselves to New Jersey's hospitality. It is my solemn responsibility to protect the NJLBA's interests in Trenton."
