Economic & Finance

Hey everyone! My name is Jon Cote. I’m a senior from Hunterdon Central Regional High School and I’ll be your chair for the 2022 Committee on Economics and Finance. In my spare time you can find me continuing my work in being an advocate for youth based civic engagement, voter registration, and equality. Some of my current projects include serving as a field organizer for my local legislative district candidates for assembly and senate, co-founder of my high school's Students Against Racism club, and Commissioner of Labor and Economic Development in youth and government to name a few. None of this would have been possible without Model United Nations, a program that has changed me and given me the courage to be the person I am today. My advice? Speak!! Speak up as much as you can. Speaking up is the only way you’ll learn, and the only way you’ll make a difference. But above everything delegates, have fun, and remember— I’ll always be there to cheer you on. Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you all soon.
