Oliver must name ethics panel member to replace Pressler

The death of retired Judge Sylvia Pressler opens up a seat on the state Joint Legislative Committee on Ethical Standards.  Pressler had been named to the panel by Assembly Speaker Joseph Roberts (D-Camden), and now Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver (D-East Orange) must name a replacement to the panel, which was created in 2008 as part of the Legislature’s ethics reform package. Pressler was the only woman on the eight-member ethics panel, which includes Rutgers University Professor Alan Rosenthal, retired Judges Daniel Mecca, John Harper, and Neil Shuster, former State Sen. Peter Inverso (R-Hamilton), and Cherry Hill attorney Anargiros Rentezelas.
