Joann Downey

As the daughter of a New Jersey State Trooper, Joann followed in her father's footsteps of serving those seeking protection when she became a Deputy State Attorney General for New Jersey.

As a Deputy Attorney General, Joann defended our state's most fragile victims by prosecuting cases of child abuse and neglect. Since then, Joann entered private practice as a trial attorney. As our Assemblywoman representing Monmouth County, Joann continues to support our families.

She has fought to provide real property tax relief to residents and to deliver the funding our schools deserve. She has pushed to restore the critical funding for women’s healthcare services that Governor Christie slashed and led the charge on closing the gender wage gap.

As a mother of two young daughters, Joann is committed to making Monmouth County a place her daughters will be proud to call their home and raise a family in.

In the Assembly, Joann serves on the Regulated Professions committee and Financial Institutions and Insurance committee. Joann, raised in Freehold Township, now lives there with her family.
