PUBLIC EMPLOYEE UNIONS
The former Camden city councilman and veteran government official is the new Assemblyman from the 5th district, replacing Arthur Barclay. The U.S. Supreme Court’s Janus decision is a potential game-changer amidst speculation that public employee union membership in New Jersey will go down.  
JEANNINE LARUE BILL PASCRELL
The longtime political strategist and executive is named one of the chairs of Trenton mayor-elect Reed Gusciora’s transition team. The popular North Jersey congressman watches his preferred candidate for House Democratic leader, Joe Crowley, lose his primary.
KHALIFAH SHABAZZ  RON DEFILIPPIS
The deputy counsel to the Essex County freeholders is picked as the new Paterson corporation counsel by mayor-elect Andre Sayegh. The Morris GOP chairman is getting beaten up by Republicans who don’t like a Pope-bashing Facebook post made by his advisor, King Penna.
JASON REDD FREEHOLDERS
The top aide to Senate President Steve Sweeney is headed to Washington to open a new office for the Gibbons law firm.   The State Senate passes Joe Pennacchio’s bill to change the title of Freeholder to County Commissioner — possible making the job title extinct.
CHRIS CHRISTIE CHRIS CHRISTIE
The former governor lands a coveted gig headlining a $30-per-person breakfast for the Morris County Republicans. The former governor loses his state police detail two weeks early, courtesy of his successor.  Who says retaliation is dead?
