I am so sad to hear of the passing of Ruth Mandel. She joined me yearly since I ran for Governor in 2009 at the Political Campaigns class at Eagleton taught by @MikeDuHaime & Maggie Moran at Eagleton Institute. A real loss. She will be missed. https://eagleton.rutgers.edu/a-profound-loss-ruth-b-mandel/ …
Ruth Mandel was an institution in her own right. A survivor of the Holocaust, she dedicated her life to improving American democracy – particularly for women. Our thoughts are with her loved ones, and the @Eagleton_RU and @CAWP_RU communities.

I had the extraordinary privilege of serving as Ruth Mandel’s research assistant. She pushed me all the time – to pursue a career in government, to go after what I wanted – and I’m a better person for it.
Ruth changed the game & my life. I will miss her.https://t.co/Q69V9fWJIY
