TRENTON - The Senate Judiciary Committee voted Thursday to advance to the full chamber the nomination of veteran Superior Court Judge Mary Eva Colalillo as Camden County prosecutor.
Colalillo, 62, would be the first woman to serve in that role. At the hearing, where lawmakers also advanced Gov. Christie's nominations of others to judgeships and prosecutor positions, Colalillo briefly thanked the governor for nominating her.
The committee did not have any questions for Colalillo, and the nearly half-dozen members offered no opposition. Democratic Sen. Nellie Pou of Paterson said Colalillo was "certainly a certified trial attorney."
