Kris Kolluri, who served as Commissioner of Transportation and then as CEO of the New Jersey Schools Development Authority (SDA) under Gov. Jon Corzine, is a likely candidate for the Democratic State Senate nomination in the 14th district, two party sources said today.
The 40-year-old West Windsor resident served as Legislative Director to U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews (D-Haddon Heights) and House Minority Leader Richard Gephardt (D-Missouri) before joining Parker McCay, a politically influential South Jersey law firm. He also served as Assistant Transportation Commissioner under John Lettiere.
Assemblyman Wayne DeAngelo (D-Hamilton) earlier today told PolitickerNJ.com that he intends to pursue a run for Democratic Party support for the seat now held by state Sen. Bill Baroni (R-Hamilton). Gov. Chris Christie announced today that Baroni is his choice as deputy executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
