EAST ORANGE, NJ - We had the pleasure of interviewing Assemblywoman Britnee Timberlake of the 34th District, in what will become a monthly video conversation, called “Breakfast with Britnee”. 

At our first segment of this meeting, we were able to dine at Strictly Bagels and Things Internet Café on 393 Main Street in East Orange. There was great conversation to be had over herbal tea, and pancakes with delicious sides. 

Our objective in this particular discussion was to discuss what it truly means to be an Assemblywoman; and what are some laws in her time as Assemblywoman that she felt she made the biggest impact.
