State Sen. Jim Holzapfel and Assemblyman Greg McGuckin praised Assemblyman David Wolfe after the latter announced he would not run for reelection after 28 years in the state legislature.
“I have had the honor to serve alongside Dave since 1995 and during those years I have witnessed his passion and dedication to the people of our district and the State of New Jersey,” Holzapfel said. “His public service cannot be measured by bills passed and votes cast but rather by his commitment to the real needs of the people of New Jersey. He is a great colleague who I am proud to call my friend and a man who represented nearly a quarter of a million people with dignity and integrity at all times.”
All three of the lawmakers represent the 10th legislative district.
Holzapfel and Wolfe have represented the district together since 1994, two years after Wolf joined the legislature.
McGuckin is a newer addition, having first won election in 2011.
“When I first joined the Assembly, Dave mentored me and assisted me during my first few years in Trenton,” McGuckin said. “Many people don’t know that my relationship with Dave goes back a generation when he supported my father for Mayor of Brick Township in the late 1960’s. That is something that me, nor my family, will never forget. Dave will be missed not only by myself, Jim and our legislative staff but most importantly he will be missed by the residents of the 10th Legislative District.”
