Oliver taps Barnes to succeed Greenstein

Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver has chosen Assemblyman Peter Barnes (D-Edison) to succeed state-Sen. elect Linda Greenstein (D-Plainsboro) as chair of the Assembly Judiciary Committee.

Assemblywoman Annette Quijano (D-Elizabeth) and Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-Princeton) were also in the running.

Greenstein held the leadership position for nearly ten years before defeating state Sen. Tom Goodwin (R-Hamilton) in a Nov. 4th special election.
