TRENTON – Senate Majority Leader Barbara Buono (D-Middlesex) today released the following statement upon learning of the passing of former state Senator and Congressman John Adler:
“John Adler was a brilliant policy maker and a great friend. He was passionate about public service and worked to fulfill the needs of his constituents, whether during his tenure in the State House or while in Congress.
“John and I used to joke that we were frustrated film critics as I used to marvel at his encyclopedic knowledge of movies. I missed his wonderful sense of humor when he left for Washington, and will miss it even more now.
“My deepest condolences go out to Shelley, their four sons, and all whose lives he touched.”
