(TRENTON) – Assemblywoman Mila Jasey (D-Essex, Morris) released the following statement on Governor Phil Murphy’s nomination of Fabiana Pierre-Louis to the New Jersey Supreme Court:
“Representation matters. With the addition of the outstanding Fabiana Pierre-Louis, our State Supreme Court will gain a strong, young voice that reflects our richly diverse state.
“Her depth of knowledge, impressive qualifications and unique background make her an ideal choice for our next Associate Justice.
