Statements on the Retirement of Senator Fred Madden

By David Wildstein, March 13 2023 3:18 pm


“Across a career spanning nearly 50 years, Fred Madden has dedicated himself to public service as a decorated New Jersey State Trooper, Acting Superintendent of the State Police, and a respected state Senator. With his background in law enforcement, New Jersey today is safer because of his efforts, especially our children. And as the longtime chairman of the Senate Labor Committee, workers today have more secure safeguards for themselves and their families because of the laws he wrote and helped pass. His retirement will leave a big set of shoes to be filled in South Jersey. Fred may be soft-spoken, but his legacy speaks volumes.”


“Senator Fred Madden’s retirement will be a real loss to the Senate, the residents of the Fourth District and the people of New Jersey. With a career of dedicated public service, including two decades in the Legislature, his accomplishments will leave a legacy of success. He worked tirelessly to improve the lives of working people, to make mental health services more available, and to protect the safety of communities throughout the state. Fred has been a great colleague and a good friend. I extend my appreciation for his public service and my best wishes to Fred and his family.”
