(TRENTON) – Assembly Deputy Speaker John S. Wisniewski (D-Middlesex) released the following statement Tuesday on the passing of Assembly Republican Leader Alex DeCroce:
“New Jersey has lost a true public servant in Alex DeCroce.
“I first met him when I entered the Legislature and was assigned to the Assembly Transportation Committee he chaired. I came to know him as an honorable adversary whose disagreements were never disagreeable and whose motivation was always to do his best for our state and the constituents he represented.
“His passing leaves a great void in our Legislature and it is with immense sadness that I join my colleagues in offering my condolences to his wife, his family and to all who had the privilege of calling him a friend.”
