EVESHAM - The Burlington County Republican Committee tonight unanimously chose state Sen.-elect Dawn Marie Addiego (R-Evesham) for a vacant 8th District senate seat and Lumberton Committeeman Pat Delany for the Assembly seat Addiego vacates as she moves to the senate.

Addiego will assume a seat emptied by Phil Haines's appointment this fall to a superior court judgeship.

A former local elected official here and freeholder before running successfully for the assembly in 2007, the senator-elect told PolitickerNJ.com that was gratified by her party's confidence.

"I most definitely think the governor is moving our state in the right direction," said Addiego, who will join 16 other upper house Republicans at her swearing-in on Nov. 22nd.

Addiego will be the ninth woman serving in the senate.

"It's a statement of our diversity in this county," said Burlington County GOP Chairman Bill Layton, who noted Addiego's presence alongside state Sen. Diane Allen (R-Edgewater) - the county's other Burlington-based senator.

Republican county committee members crowded around the beaming senator-elect in the country community center here tonight following her selection.

Adiego was one of 13 interested applicants to the senate job, a group that also included Assemblyman Scott Rudder.
