TRENTON – Senate President Richard J. Codey today selected Senator Sandra Bolden Cunningham to serve as Vice Chair of the Senate Labor Committee.

Senator Cunningham will replace Senator Fred H. Madden, D-Camden and Gloucester, who was also named the Senate Labor Committee Chairman today. Senator Madden will replace Senator Paul Sarlo, D-Bergen, Essex and Passaic, who was named Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman last week. Senator Sarlo will fill the vacancy being left by current Judiciary Committee Chairman Senator John Adler, D-Cherry Hill, when he leaves to join Congress in January.

“I look forward to continuing to work with Senator Madden in our new leadership roles on the Senate Labor Committee,” said Senator Cunningham, D-Hudson, who has served on the Senate Labor panel since she was first elected to the Legislature in 2007. “Labor and business development are of paramount importance to our State right now and I am ready to continue working with my colleagues to serve the hard-working people of New Jersey.”

“Sandra Cunningham has been an integral part of the Labor Committee since joining the Senate last year,” said Sen. Codey, D-Essex. “She has been a strong advocate for fair and progressive labor laws and will serve the Committee proudly as its new Vice Chair.” #
