Florio Tribute: David Rible

By Joey Fox, September 26 2022 12:00 pm

Utility and Transportation Contractors Association executive director and former Assemblyman David Rible (R-Wall) issued the following statement on the death of former Governor Jim Florio:

“Governor Florio is the embodiment of what it means to be a public servant. As an Assemblyman, Congressman and Governor he fought tirelessly for the causes he believed in, even when it was politically unpopular. Above all, he served with grace and dignity and leaves behind an amazing legacy of public service.

“I consider myself fortunate to have had the privilege of interacting with Governor Florio during my time in the Legislature. Even as a new legislator from the opposite party, he always treated me with kindness and respect that is too often lacking in today’s political environment.

“In addition, our association has enjoyed a great relationship with the Governor’s law firm, Florio Perrucci Steinhardt Cappelli Tipton & Taylor, which has served as our legal counsel for many years. On behalf of the members of UTCA, I offer our condolences and prayers to Lucinda and the entire Florio family.”
