NJCA Applauds Appointment of Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg to Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield Board of Directors

January 6th, 2022

New Jersey Citizen Action Director of Policy and Advocacy Maura Collinsgru issued the following statement today. 

“Senator Loretta Weinberg has been an outspoken legislative champion on ensuring access to affordable, comprehensive health care for New Jersey women, children and families, as well as countless other social justice issues that have improved the lives of New Jerseyans for decades. We have no doubt that she will continue to fight for everyday New Jerseyans in her new role. As a member of Horizon’s Board of Directors, she will be a much-needed voice for our state’s health care consumers and our most vulnerable residents–including working families, women, children, and people of color–and help us move closer to our goal of health care for all New Jerseyans. 

“We applaud Senator Weinberg’s appointment, thank her again for her many years of service, and congratulate her on her new role. As New Jersey’s leading organization fighting for affordable and accessible health care for all, we look forward to continuing to work with her on the reforms that best serve the needs of our residents.”
