NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - Gov. Chris Christie on Monday announced he was nominating four Middlesex County attorneys to judicial appointments, the latest in a wave of appointments made by the lame duck governor.

Patrick Bradshaw, a partner in the New Brunswick-based Kelso & Bradshaw firm, was nominated as a Superior Court judge in Middlesex County.

Bradshaw’s partner, Thomas Kelso, is Middlesex County’s legal counsel, and has also represented several developers for different redevelopment projects in New Brunswick.

Middlesex County Assistant Prosecutor Sheree Pitchford was also nominated. ​In her role​, Pitchford represented the county against a trucker who in 2014, smashed his truck into comedian Tracy Morgan’s van on the New Jersey Turnpike, which left one man dead.

The trucker, Kevin Roper, plead guilty to aggravated manslaughter in February 2016.

Another appointee, Milltown attorney Thomas J. Buck, was also nominated for the Superior Court.

Buck represented New Brunswick City Fire Director Robert Rawls in 2014, in connection with a court case where he struck three kids with an SUV that same year.

Gary Wolinetz, a Plainsboro-based attorney, was also nominated to a judicial post by Christie.

In late November, Christie nominated Middlesex County Democratic Chairman Kevin McCabe to a seat on the Port Authority, the powerful bi-state agency which runs transportation and infrastructure projects in New York and New Jersey.
