Adam Taliaferro Tapped For New Jersey State Legislature

Adam Taliaferro, current alumni-elected trustee and former Penn State football player, has been tapped to fill a vacant seat in the New Jersey State Legislature, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

“This opportunity arose and for me, it was truly an exciting opportunity to really expand what we’ve been doing on the freeholder level, to bring it up the state level,” Taliaferro said.

Taliaferro currently serves as a Gloucester County freeholder after winning reelection in November. The trustee was endorsed by the county’s Democratic committees to fill the Third District Seat in the legislature following the resignation of Assemblywoman Celeste Riley, who stepped down following her election as Cumberland County clerk in November.

Taliaferro’s endorsement for the state legislature position brings up the possibility that he will not run for reelection to the Board of Trustees when his term ends later this year, although intent to run announcements for the alumni trustee election are expected in the coming months.
