Janine Bauer, Partner – Szaferman Lakind

Szaferman Lakind Partner Janine Bauer was confirmed by the New Jersey State Senate to the Gateway Development Commission. Governor Phil M. Murphy released the confirmation in a statement on December 17, 2020.

Janine was nominated by Governor Murphy to be one of the New Jersey representatives on the Gateway Development Commission in October 2019. The Gateway Development Commission is responsible for the oversight of the Hudson Tunnel Project and the Portal Bridge North replacement over the Hackensack River.

Janine will join Dr. Balpreet Grewal-Virk and the interim Chair of the Gateway Development Corporation Jerry Zaro, as New Jersey’s representatives. Along with representatives from New York, appointed by Governor Andrew Cuomo and a representative from Amtrak, they will report on the progress of the Gateway Program to the respective governors.
