Patricia Perkins-Auguste
Councilwoman at-Large, City of Elizabeth, NJ

 

Patricia Perkins-Auguste was sworn into office on January 1, 1993, as Councilwoman at-large of the Elizabeth City Council. Councilwoman Perkins-Auguste broke gender and racial barriers by becoming the first African-American female to be elected to the governing body in the 365-year history of Elizabeth, the fourth-largest city in the State of New Jersey.

 

Currently, Councilwoman Perkins-Auguste is considered the dean of the Council, serving in her seventh consecutive four-year term, and the only female for 12 years of the nine-member governing body.

 

The Councilwoman, as she is affectionately known by her supporters, peers and friends, continues to champion causes for the disenfranchised, women, children and the elderly through innovated social improvement programs and self-help initiatives. A strong supporter of grassroots and women-led organizations, Councilwoman Perkins-Auguste has been accredited with developing leadership for women on the local, county, state and national levels.
