Gov. Chris Christie moved to replace two members of the state
Pinelands Commission, including his own appointee, D'Arcy Rohan Green of
Bay Head, months after she and six other commissioners voted to block a
plan to build a controversial natural gas pipeline, according to an article in the Asbury Park Press.
Christie's nominations Monday of Dennis Roohr, the Republican mayor of North Hanover in Burlington County, and Robert S. Barr, president of the Ocean City Community Association and a Democratic party activist, would replace Green, a Bay Head Borough Council member, and Robert Jackson, a former mayor of West Cape May.
If Roohr and Barr are approved by the state Senate Judiciary Committee that could swing the vote on the pipeline from a tie and make it possible for South Jersey Gas to get approval to build.
