The Essex County Democratic Committee recently affirmed South Orange Democratic Party Chair Janine Bauer as a temporary Freeholder Board replacement for Assemblywoman Britnee Timberlake. Bauer was sworn in in early March.
An attorney and public transportation advocate, Bauer will serve on the freeholder board before the committee selects a full time replacement from East Orange, according to a report from InsiderNJ.com.
Bauer told Village Green, “I’m thrilled to be appointed as an interim county freeholder for district three, which encompasses the west ward of Newark, South Orange, Orange and East Orange. I hope to hear from constituents on their priorities and I will be pursuing a few of my own.”
She continued, “I’m impressed with Essex County’s management and progress and happy to be part of advancing our common interests.”
