Senator Kip Bateman (R-16) praised the Senate Judiciary Committee for approving the nomination of Jeff Chiesa to be New Jersey’s Attorney General. Bateman, a member of the Judiciary Committee, said that Chiesa has the character and experience to serve in the state’s top law enforcement post.

“Governor Christie was known as a corruption buster in his service as U.S. Attorney, so it’s no surprise he would appoint someone like Jeff who shares his dedication and work ethic to take on that challenge as our state’s Attorney General,” said Bateman. “As Attorney General, I have no doubt in my mind that Jeff Chiesa will be persistent, effective and fair, and he’ll do much to make New Jersey a safer place to live.”
