The Coniglio Rumor

The hot rumor of the day, according to numerous sources in Bergen County and in Trenton, is the possible appointment of State Senator Joseph Coniglio to the state Board of Public Utilities. Several sources told PoliticsNJ.com that Coniglio is interested in going to the BPU if the current occupant of the seat, Jack Alter, retires. If Coniglio were to leave the Senate, it might set off another hotly contested special election convention among Bergen Democrats. Possible candidates: Assemblyman Robert Gordon and Paramus Mayor James Tedesco.
