David Wildstein from the NewJerseyGlobe.com was the first to break this news.

Ciatterelli is making it official today with announcements in South Jersey and North Jersey.

I’ve interviewed Allen in the past. She’s tough and very knowledgeable. I’ve always found her to be a very fair-minded person.

The Diane B. Allen Equal Pay Act, bears her name. Allen is a fighter, who has waged fierce battle regarding equity (pay and otherwise) in the workplace.

This is a political masterstroke on Ciatterelli’s part. Both Governor Phil Murphy and First Lady Tammy Murphy have shown great respect to Allen in the past.

Allen is a proven voter-getter, with high name recognition and a significant body of work on her impressive resume.

Developing.
