The legislative panel investigating the Murphy administration’s hiring of Al Alvarez will hear testimony from five campaign, transition and administration officials on Tuesday and from Gov. Phil Murphy’s top two staffers on Thursday.

A source with knowledge of the Legislative Select Oversight Committee’s plans noted that the schedule of witnesses could change between now and next week

Right now, the plan is for Murphy for Governor campaign counsel Jonathan Berkon and transition chairman Jose Lozano to appear on Tuesday, along with the governor’s deputy chief counsel, Parimal Garg, chief ethics officer Heather Taylor, and Schools Development Authority executive director Lizette Delgado.

Murphy’s chief counsel, Matt Platkin, and his outgoing chief of staff, Peter Cammarano, are expected to testify on Thursday.

NJ Advance Media reported on Wednesday that the panel would hold two hearings next week.

Cammarano began his testimony in December before the committee adjourned for the holiday break.

Based on the last two days of hearings, five witnesses could be an ambitious goal for the committee.

The New Jersey Globe first reported last month that the committee had invited five members of the governor’s staff, as well as Delgado-Polanco, to testify.
