The acting counsel to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is Gov. Phil Murphy’s pick head the state Division of Consumer Affairs.

Paul Rodriguez, a New Jersey native who served on the staff of U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg, will lead the office that advocates for consumers’ rights and oversees nearly fifty regulatory boards. He will help Murphy establish a state-level Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

“As the federal government abandons its responsibility to protect consumers from financial fraudsters, it is more important than ever that New Jersey picks up the mantle to protect its own residents,” said Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, who announced the nomination. “Paul has the energy and ability necessary to lead the Division as we work to protect New Jerseyans from fraud and professional misconduct in the marketplace.”

Rodriguez is a graduate of Montclair State University and Yale Law School. His nomination must be approved by the State Senate.
