Lepore is a former anchor and journalist who worked with CNN for 11 years, according to her biography.

“My career aspiration has not been to seek elected office,” she said in her campaign announcement. “However, after much reflection, it’s clear that our community needs a representative who will effectively voice our concerns and expectations as issues are debated at the State Capitol.”
