Five Attorneys Running For State Bar Secretary

Per The New Jersey Law Journal:

"Five lawyers, the largest number since 2006, are seeking State Bar Nominating Committee backing for the post of secretary, the first step on the six- year trek to the presidency.

"The candidates are all current Bar trustees. Three — Robert Brass, Bonnie Blume Goldsamt and Amirali Haidri — are solos, while Robert Hille and John Keefe Jr. are partners at litigation firms.

"The candidate selected by the committee usually runs unopposed, but the wide field of contenders could point to a contested election, as occurred in 2011."

***

"Before the 2011 race, the Bar's last contested election was in 1993, when the Nominating Committee's choice for secretary, Raymond Londa, was defeated by Joseph Bottitta.

"Once elected secretary, the officer moves lockstep each year through the posts of treasurer, second vice president, first vice president, president-elect and president."
