LUPE FUND JOINS ASSEMBLYWOMAN YVONNE LOPEZ TO LEARN FROM HER EXPERIENCE IN ELECTORAL POLITICS.
A group of Latina women, recently, gathered around Assemblywoman Ivonne Lopez (LD-19), who was standing at the Raritan Yacht Club of Perth Amboy for a meeting titled “A Conversation with Yvonne”.
There they were listening to the Assemblywoman’s soft voice as students would pay attention to a teacher.
