The New Jersey Educational Facilities Authority approved the appointment Monday of James Stephen Poole, a former director of the state’s Office of Public Finance, to head the higher-educational bonding agency.

He succeeds Roger Anderson, who left the post in July to serve as vice president for finance and chief financial officer at Centenary College. There is a 10-day period in which the governor may veto the appointment. Poole is set to begin Nov. 29, according to authority spokeswoman Sheryl Stitt.
