Webber was once treasurer of redistricting ‘shadow PAC’

Assemblyman Jay Webber, who heads the Republican redistricting team, was once the treasurer of Center for a Better New jersey, the 501 (c) (4) opened to aid the GOP in its redistricting efforts.

Webber reported his role with the group on a financial disclosure form filed with the Office of Legislative Services last spring.  Webber’s disclosure says he served as treasurer for the group in 2009.  The most recent financial dosclosure form is not available on the OLS web site.

Democrats Wednesday assailed the group for its lack of transparency, saying the existence of the “shadow PAC” was a blight on the redistricting process.
