Senate Democratic Conference Chair Bob Gordon today announced the appointment of Constantina Meis to serve as the new district director in his 38th Legislative District Office.
“I am extraordinarily pleased that Constantina is joining my team as District Director. Her years of experience as a community organizer and an advocate for issues that matter to families will prove invaluable as we continue the work to improve the lives of residents in my thirteen towns and across New Jersey,” said Senator Gordon (D-Bergen and Passaic). “Her passion for public service will also be an asset in maintaining the high levels of constituent service for which my office is known.”
Prior to joining Senator Gordon’s office, Meis worked for the American Conference on Diversity, a nonprofit whose mission is to build more inclusive and just schools, workplaces and communities. She also worked as a Youth Development Specialist for Boys & Girls Club of Newark, and currently serves as a mentor in the organization.
Meis has a decade of experience in local, state and national political and issue campaigns. She has worked for Washington, D.C.-based Field Strategies and for various campaigns, including as campaign manager for the Passaic County Democratic Committee; in field operations for Congressman Bill Pascrell; as Hudson County Director for US Senator Bob Menendez; and Statewide Deputy in New Jersey for Obama for America ‘08. She currently serves as Executive Vice President on the national board of Young Democrats of America.
Meis, a first-generation Greek-American, was the first in her immediate family to earn both a high school and college degree. She received a bachelor’s degree from Bloomfield College. She resides in Bergenfield.
