Esther Suarez nominated to be Hudson County Prosecutor

Superior Court Judge Esther Suarez has been nominated as the new Hudson County prosecutor on Wednesday by Gov. Christopher Christie.
Suarez, a native of Bayonne, served as counsel for the city of Hoboken before moving on to become a superior court judge in Passaic County. She will serve a five-year term as prosecutor.
Hudson County has been without a prosecutor since early June, 2012, when two-term prosecutor Ed DeFazio was appointed as a judge.
“I am proud to support Esther Suarez’s nomination to become the next Hudson County Prosecutor because she is not only eminently qualified, but also because her confirmation will be a historic moment as she will become both the first woman and the first person of Hispanic heritage to serve in the position,” said North Bergen Mayor and State Senator Nick Sacco (D-32nd.) “Esther is a Hudson County native and a Superior Court Judge with an impeccable record and unimpeachable integrity. She will bring a strong background of legal experience to the office and will ably represent the diversity that makes Hudson County great.”
