Amy Mansue has rejected overtures from emissaries of Gov. Phil Murphy to become his new chief of staff, numerous individuals told the New Jersey Globe today.
A former deputy chief of staff to Gov. James E. McGreevey, Mansue made it clear that she has no real interest in returning to state government and no formal offer was ever extended, sources say.
Murphy has still not settled on a choice to succeed Pete Cammarano, who is due to leave his post as chief of staff to the governor late next week or early the week after.
Mansue is currently the southern region president of RWJBarnabas Health. She began her career in Jim Florio’s congressional office and joined state government as a policy advisor when Florio became governor in 1990. She later served as deputy commissioner of Human Services, and served as president of Children’s Specialized Hospital Chief Strategy Officer, of the Robert Wood Johnson Health System, and now in her RWJBarnabas post.
