TRENTON — Gov. Florio's appointment of Cherry Hill Mayor Susan Bass Levin to the Delaware River Port Authority board was finally sent to the full Senate yesterday by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Levin's appointment has been tied up by pressure politicking by Democrats and Republicans.
Neither dispute is related to Levin's qualifications. State Sen. William L. Gormley (R., Atlantic), chairman of the Judiciary Committee and a critic of linking gubernatorial appointments to such political pressure tactics, added Levin's appointment to his agenda after extensive coverage of the delay.
