Florio Tribute: Kevin McCabe

By New Jersey Globe Staff, September 26 2022 10:04 am

Middlesex County Democratic Chairman Kevin McCabe made the following statement on the death of former Governor Jim Florio:

“Governor Florio was a man who never backed down from a tough fight throughout his time as Assemblyman, Congressman, and Governor. Though he didn’t win them all, he was ahead of his time in many ways. From a ban on assault rifles to his efforts to balance our state budget to his efforts to protect the pensions of union workers, many of the issues Governor Florio brought to the forefront are still being debated today.“I got to know Governor Florio well after he and his wife Lucinda moved to Metuchen. Even after his time in public service had ended, they became integral members of our Middlesex County community, which will surprise no one that knows them.“My and Laurie’s prayers are with everyone in our state who will grieve his loss, whether they knew him or not. And our hearts are with Lucinda in particular during this difficult time.”
