Dow up for Burlco judgeship

TRENTON – Gov. Chris Christie announced his intention to nominate former Attorney General Paula Dow for a judgeship today.

Dow left the AG’s position late last year to take a post with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey while the judgeship process unfolded.

She originally was nominated for an Essex County judgeship, but that nomination was withdrawn and she now is being tapped for a Burlington County judgeship.

Sen. Diane Allen, (R-7), Edgewater Park, lauded the nomination.

“The Burlington Vicinage of the Superior Court has for a long time had a caseload that warranted the addition of judges to the bench,” said Allen in a release. “I am pleased that Governor Christie has taken action to help relieve this burden by moving a discretionary seat into the county. An extra judge will help ensure not only that justice is done for the people of Burlington County, but that it is done swiftly.”

In addition to Dow’s nomination, Christie made these nominations:
