Gov.-elect Chris Christie has tapped a former New York City councilman and New York state tax commissioner to be New Jersey's treasurer.
    
Christie announced Andrew Eristoff of Manhattan as his nominee to the key cabinet position. The economy played a large role in Christie's victory over Gov. Jon Corzine.
    
Eristoff was New York State Tax Commissioner under Gov. George Pataki and was a former aide to New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
 
The 46-year-old also is the former Republican Party Chairman in Manhattan and served on the New York City Council.
    
Eristoff must be confirmed by the state Senate.

On Wednesday, Christie named school choice proponent Bret Schundler as his pick for education commissioner, sending his strongest signal yet to the state's powerful teacher union that he intends to carry out education reforms that they oppose.
