Governor Christie Nominates Senator “with Bridgegate Ties” to PANYNJ Board

The Record reports that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has nominated State Senator Kevin O’Toole, “a close political ally,” to fill a PANYNJ board vacancy left by the resignation of former Bergen County Executive William ‘Pat’ Schuber. The newspaper adds that while O’Toole was not accused of playing a role in the George Washington Bridge lane closure scheme, his name “came up several times last year” during the Bridgegate trial.
