Assemblyman Jim Kennedy on Jerry Green

By David Wildstein, April 19 2018 10:11 am

Assemblyman James Kennedy (D-Rahway) issued a statement this morning on the death of Assemblyman Jerry Green:

“I am simply devastated to hear of the passing of my district mate, mentor, and friend Jerry Green.

During our time together in the Legislature, I learned so much from him. The lessons he taught me about policy, politics, and the fundamental need to help those who are less fortunate will forever be invaluable to me.

Jerry Green was a champion in the fight for affordable housing, not only for those in our district but across the state as well. He worked tirelessly to help those who needed it, and I can only hope to emulate the vigor and passion he brought to the Assembly.

I will miss fighting for the citizens of the 22nd  Legislative District with Jerry at my side. I know I speak for so many of our constituents in saying that we lost a true leader in our community. It was an honor to work alongside him. I want to send my deepest condolences to the Green family.”
