Attorney Susan Okin Goldsmith is a lifelong Democrat. Social action and justice are in her blood, so it is no surprise that she was among the women so moved by the vitriol of the 2016 election to engage in our community, first with a grassroots group of like-minded women and then by helping to re-establish the Bernards Township Democratic Committee.  She saw injustice, rolled up her sleeves, and made a difference.
