Mary Pat Angelini (born December 8, 1954) is an American Republican Party politician, who has served in the New Jersey General Assembly since January 8, 2008, where she represents the 11th Legislative District.

Angelini serves in the Assembly on the Human Services Committee and the Health and Senior Services Committee.[1]

Angelini graduated with a Bachelor of Social Welfare from East Tennessee State University in social work and an M.P.A. from Fairleigh Dickinson University. Since 1992 she has served as Executive Director of Prevention First, which provides educational programs and services to schools, businesses, and community organizations to counter the negative effects of drug abuse and violence.[2] Her work there led her to become an advocate against the legalization of recreational marijuana in the state.[3][4] Angelini is a resident of Ocean Township, Monmouth County.[5]

The Assemblywoman has sponsored legislation to establish an Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights in New Jersey.[6] The bill was signed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie early in 2011.[7] The law encourages school districts to better investigate reports of bullying and was drafted in response to the suicide of Tyler Clementi.[8]
