U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez (D) will deliver the commencement address to the 44th graduating class of Camden County College next Saturday, May 19.
The senator was last at the college March 5 to tout his private-public jobs training proposal.
Menendez ascended to the U.S. Senate in 2006 when he was picked by Democrats to complete the term of Jon Corzine, who was elected governor in 2005. He was then elected to the U.S. Senate for a full, six-year term in November 2006, and is seeking re-election this year.
A career politician, Mendendez served 14 years as a U.S. Congressman, one in the New Jersey state senate, four in the New Jersey state Assembly, and six years as the mayor of Union City.
