    Before becoming a judge, Solomon worked with Christie as the head of the U-S Attorney’s southern New Jersey offices in Camden and Trenton.

    Solomon says his experience in making judgments in court will be an asset in his new role.

    Solomon: It causes your focus to be very much on the future, the quality of family life for the individuals you’re dealing with. I think those are all good characteristics for somebody taking on this responsibility.

    Governor Christie has also selected Monmouth County Administrator Bob Czech to be chairman of the state Civil Service Commission.
