Niki Trunk has committed her professional and personal life to serving her community and helping those who need it most. Now she’s running for State Senate to bring a fresh perspective to Trenton and help Governor Christie get our state moving in the right direction again.
Niki began her career as an attorney representing those who were injured by negligence. As the Chief of Staff for the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General, and most recently as the Deputy Chief of Staff for the State Comptroller’s Office, Niki has a proven track record of fighting for taxpayers.
She took on corporate greed and big companies that tried to take advantage of average citizens, and helped weed out and eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse that drive up costs for New Jersey taxpayers. She’ll bring that same independent advocacy to Trenton.
As a resident of Harrison Township, Niki was a member of the Township Planning Board, and volunteer and ultimately co-chair of the American Cancer Society Mullica Hill Relay for Life, which helps to raise awareness and money to support cancer research.
Her passion for her community motivated her to become more involved in local government. In 2007, she was elected to Township Committee, where she worked to cut red tape and fostered job growth by working closely with local small businesses. As Deputy Mayor and Township Committeewoman, Niki served as liaison to the Township’s Economic Development Committee, Mullica Hill Merchants’ Association and the Historical Preservation Commission to achieve her goals of developing and strengthening small business job growth.
Niki graduated from Trenton State College with a degree in English and received her law degree and master’s degree in business from Temple University. She and her husband Mike live in Monroeville, New Jersey with their three dogs Pugsy, Jaxie, and Bella.
