Acting NJ Education Chief’s Residency Questioned

Gov. Chris Christie says acting Education commissioner Chris Cerf has taken steps to change his legal residency from Montclair to Montgomery.

That comes after a state Senate panel put off considering Cerf’s nomination because of concerns over whether he had moved.

Christie says Cerf has rented an apartment in Montgomery to be closer to work. He says the nominee has changed his driver’s license and voter registration to the Montgomery address, though he still spends some nights in Montclair with his family.

Where Cerf lives affects his chances of confirmation.

The tradition of senatorial courtesy allows senators from his home county to block his nomination.

In Montclair, Cerf was being blocked by Sen. Ron Rice, a Newark Democrat. But in Montgomery, GOP Sen. Kip Bateman has already signed off.
