John E. McCormac began his long and distinguished public career as the Financial Officer of Woodbridge Township in 1990. In 2002, he was appointed New Jersey State Treasurer by Governor Jim McGreevey and Acting Governor Richard Codey, while managing New Jersey’s multi-billion-dollar annual budget. McCormac served as the lead cabinet officer charged with briefing the state legislature, statewide constituent advocacy groups, and the media on New Jersey’s fiscal policies. As Mayor, he has been a driving force for transformational economic development in Woodbridge.
About the Award: Caren S. Franzini was one of New Jersey's greatest economic development advocates, evidenced by her incredibly effective leadership of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, and her work with Greater Trenton. In 2017, NAIOP New Jersey established the Caren S. Franzini Public Partner Award, to be presented in her memory and to honor local champions of development that inspires and transforms our communities.
