(TRENTON) – Speaker Craig Coughlin (D-Middlesex) released the following statement in response to the passing of Dominick Marino, who had served as president of the Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey since 2008:
“Dominick Marino was a true gentleman and public servant. He dedicated his life to keeping his community safe as a firefighter, and never stopped advocating for first responders across New Jersey. Among his many advocacy accomplishments in Trenton, he played an integral role in the passage of the Thomas P. Canzanella First Century First Responders Protection Act, which strengthened workers’ compensation for first responders. His service to his community, his state and his country will never be forgotten.
“My deepest condolences to the Marino family at this difficult time.”
