TRENTON — Dr. Richard Tomko was recently appointed to the School Ethics Commission by departing Governor Chris Christie. Christie made several appointments to official New Jersey bodies during his final month in office, including Tomko, a Sparta resident. The School Ethics Commission is a nine-member body with the power to issue advisory opinions, receive complaints, receive and retain disclosure statements, conduct investigations, hold hearings, and compel the attendance of witnesses and the production of documents as it may deem necessary to enforce the School Ethics Act. School Ethics Commission Members are appointed by and serve at the pleasure of the Governor. The Commission is established in the New Jersey Department of Education. Tomko is currently Superintendent of Schools in the Belleville district in Essex County. He has been a school administrator serving past districts in several counties as Director of Athletics, school principal, and Assistant Superintendent. He also works as an adjunct instructor in the Graduate Department of Education at Manhattan College.
