A package of Passaic County appointments is expected to win approval by the Senate Judiciary Committee today, including former Assemblyman Ronald Fava to become the deputy Superintendent of Elections.
On the agenda today is Gov. Phil Murphy’s nomination of former deputy state attorney general Shona Mack-Pollack, a Democrat, to replace Republican Sherine El-Abd as Passaic County Superintendent of Elections.
The nominations of Passaic mayor Hector Lora and Totowa councilman Brendan Murphy to the PVSC are also up for consideration by the Senate today.
Murphy is the son of Passaic County GOP chairman Peter Murphy.
Fava was elected to the State Assembly in 1975 in the Paterson-based 35th district, but lost re-election in 1977 to Democrat John Girgenti. He served as Passaic County Prosecutor and then as acting sheriff before narrowly losing to Democrat Jerry Speziale in 2001. He was defeated in his bid for county clerk in November 2018.
