Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin announced the contingent of members from his chamber that will sit on the Select Committee investigation into the hiring of Al Alvarez by Gov. Phil Murphy’s administration.
Coughlin named Assemblywoman Nancy Munoz the committee’s vice chair. Assembly members Angela McKnight, Pamela Lampitt, Verlina Reynolds Jackson, Gordon Johnson, Nancy Pinkin, Bettylou DeCroce and Holly Schepisi will sit on the committee.
Joseph A. Hayden, a former deputy state attorney general, will serve as counsel for the Assembly side of the committee.
Hayden will be paid $350-per-hour, the same rate as Michael Critchley, who is counsel for the Senate’s side of the panel, and Peter Verniero, who is heading the governor’s independent investigation into the matter.
Coughlin named Assemblywoman Eliana Pintor Marin as the committee’s chairwoman on Friday.
