Murphy will name Marley, Bauer, Glover, Hicks to EDA board

Gov. Phil Murphy is expected to name four women to the board of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority today, including Democratic National Committeewoman Marcia Marley and former New Jersey Secretary of Commerce and Economic Growth Virginia Bauer, the New Jersey Globe has learned.

Murphy will also name Aisha Glover, the president and CEP of the Newark Alliance, and Rosemari Hicks, the head of the Human Resources and Compensation practice at the Camden-based RHC Consulting.

The EDA has been under fire for its handling of tax incentives during Gov. Chris Christie’s administration, and Murphy sought the resignations of several – but not all – board members last April.

Marley recently became the chair of New Jersey Policy Perspective, one of New Jersey’s top think tanks.  She also headed BlueWaveNJ, a grassroots progressive organization.

Bauer served headed the state Commerce department as a member of Gov. James E. McGreevey’s cabinet after serving as state Lottery Director.  She later served as a commissioner of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Glover was one of the architects of Newark’s bid to attract a new Amazon headquarters.
