Other nominees are Dr. Kelly Blundy of the Spine and Health Center in New Jersey, a chiropractic practice with locations in Montvale and Closter, and Dr. Michael Kaufman, owner and clinic director of Kaufman Chiropractic in Lawrenceville.

“I am very excited to add this list of highly qualified individuals to the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners.” said Governor Murphy. “The Board’s recent decision to restore a convicted sex offender’s license was shocking and offensive. We must begin reforming this body now, and I look forward to working with the Senate to bring Dr. Blundy, Onyeani, and Kaufman to begin this important effort. “

The new appointments, which have been confirmed by the Senate, will replace the appointed representatives.
