Jasey to Retire
Assemblywoman Mila Jasey (D-28) will retire from the Assembly.
The veteran assemblywoman first assumed the oath of office for the seat in 2007, in place of the corruption banged-up Mims Hackett.
One of the lead authors of New Jersey’s Interdistrict Public School Choice Program in 2010, which allows private schools in urban areas to convert to charters, she has a reputation as a substantive lawmaker.
Her retirement causes an Essex County Democratic Committee post redistricting gut-check.
Jasey served in the 27th for her entire career.
The South Orange seat now occupies the 28th District, dominated by Newark and Irvington.
A source tonight told InsiderNJ that the committee will give a hard once over to its bench, with the priority of recruiting someone from Jasey’s hometown.
