    New Jersey’s Attorney General is getting ready to leave office next month when the state gets a new Governor.

    Anne Milgram says she does not know what her next job will be. She says she’ll be taking a vacation after her last day as Attorney General on January 19th.

    Milgram: Well I’ve have the great opportunity of seeing the state of New Jersey for the past three years so I think I’m actually going to go out of the country for three months. I have a host of friends that live in different places. I’m going to take a little time and just you know relax.

    Milgram says the most important thing she’d like to see her successor do is give deputies in the Attorney General’s office a raise. She says the office is at a tipping point for being able to continue the work it’s been doing. Essex County Prosecutor Paula Dow is Governor-elect Christie’s nominee to replace Milgram.
