Gabriela Mosquera (born January 3, 1977) is an American Democratic Party politician, who has served in the New Jersey General Assembly since 2012, where she represents the 4th Legislative District.

Mosquera received a B.A. degree from The College of New Jersey, where she majored in political science and was awarded an M.B.A. from the Keller Graduate School of Management at Devry University.[1]

Due to the 2011 apportionment based on the results of the 2010 United States Census, the 4th District Assembly seat of Domenick DiCicco, a Republican, became vacant, with DiCicco placed in the 3rd District where he lost to the Democratic incumbents. Mosquera ran for the empty seat on the Democratic ticket with the incumbent Paul Moriarty. In the general election, she and Moriarty defeated the Republican candidates, Shelley Lovett and Patricia Fratticcioli. By taking DiCicco's seat, Mosquera represented the only gain by the Democrats in the Assembly in the 2011 election cycle.[2]

In response to a lawsuit filed by her Republican challenger Shelley Lovett, Mosquera could not be sworn into office in January 2012 and a ruling issued the next month by the New Jersey Supreme Court declared Mosquera's November 2011 invalid, saying that her move to the Blackwood section of Gloucester Township did not meet the one-year residency requirement established in state law.[3] Mosquera was sworn into office in March after she was selected by district Democrats and filed to face off again against Lovett in a November 2012 special election.[4]

In June 2012, the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey overturned the N.J. Supreme Court ruling and upheld her November 2011 election, finding that an injunction that prohibits enforcement of the one-year residency rule is in force in years in which redistricting takes place.[5]

Mosquera won the November 2012 special election for the remainder of the term, defeating Lovett by a margin of 60 to 40 percent.[6]

Mosquera has served in the Assembly on the Commerce and Economic Development Committee, the Financial Institutions and Insurance Committee and the Women and Children Committee.[1]
