Former Assemblyman Anthony “Skip” Cimino will serve as executive director of the Assembly Majority Office.
Speaker-elect Craig Coughlin made the pick.
“I am proud that someone with Skip’s experience in the public and private sectors will lead the Assembly Majority Office during this critical time,” said Coughlin. “Skip’s depth of knowledge will be a tremendous asset for our caucus and for our state.”
Cimino represented the 14th Legislative District as an Assemblyman from 1988-1992 and later served as Commissioner of Personnel in the Florio Administration. Prior to his election to the legislature, he served as a Mercer County freeholder for six years, where he was Board President, and as a member of the Hamilton Township Board of Education, serving two terms as President.
Cimino was most recently a partner at the Kaufman Zita group. He previously served as President and CEO of Robert Wood Johnson (RWJ) University Hospital in Hamilton.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to serve our state again and am eager to get to work on the many issues before us,” said Cimino. “I thank Speaker-Designate Coughlin for placing his trust in me and look forward to working with him, his caucus and the men and women of the Assembly Majority Office to move New Jersey forward.”
Cimino earned his undergraduate degree at Providence College and graduated from the New Jersey Military Academy as a commissioned second lieutenant.
He and his wife live in Hamilton. They have three children and four grandchildren.
