Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-Hudson/Bergen) issued the following statement Monday on the passing of Union County Sheriff Ralph Froehlich:
“I want to extend my heartfelt sympathies to Sheriff Froehlich’s family at this time. Knowing what an impact he had on those he touched in his professional life, I can only imagine the profound loss his family must be feeling right now.
“He was one of the last holdovers from a different generation when people were prized above politics and political parties never stood in the way of friendships. Simply put, he was a gentleman that loved serving his community. And he will be sorely missed.”
