Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald (D-Camden, Burlington) issued the following statement in response to the passing of former Governor Jim Florio:
“I am deeply saddened to learn of Governor Jim Florio’s passing. Governor Florio was a good man who will be remembered for his staunch commitment to the people of New Jersey. He leaves behind a distinguished legacy of fighting to improve the lives of New Jersey residents. Whether championing environment and education issues or keeping our streets safe with commonsense gun safety laws, Governor Florio’s dedication to public service made New Jersey a better place to live. He will be missed.
“My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with the Florio family during this difficult time.”
