Rice Tribute: HPAE

By David Wildstein, March 15 2023 8:17 pm

HPAE, the state’s largest heath care workers union, released the following statement on the death of former State Sen. Ronald Rice:

“Newark has lost a favorite son and a giant in New Jersey’s legislature. In his long career of public service, Sen. Rice often was often the lone voice in championing racial equality and social justice; always fighting for society’s most vulnerable populations. He was a partner with HPAE in working to protect public health services, especially University Hospital in Newark.”
