essex county commissioner president wayne l. richardson issues statement on the passing of james j. florio

Former Governor of New Jersey – the Honorable James J. Florio

Essex County Commissioner President Wayne L. Richardson on behalf of the Board –

On behalf of the Essex County Board of Commissioners, I send my condolences to the family of former New Jersey Governor James J. Florio. Governor Florio was a lifelong public servant who positively affected the lives of so many through his dedicated service in the New Jersey State Assembly, in the U.S. House of Representatives, and as the 49th Governor of the great state of New Jersey. He was a staunch advocate for education, common sense gun legislation, environmental responsibility, and other measures aiming to improve the quality of life for residents of New Jersey, and all people across the nation.

We send our condolences to his wife Lucinda, his family, and all who loved him.
