John Adler was remembered at the state house today with poignant remarks from a longtime South Jersey colleague in the legislature, Assembly Budget Chairman Lou Greenwald, who set aside the morning’s business for a moment to remember his friend.
Several of the state’s U.S. senators offered statements from Washington, even President Obama weighed in on Adler’s untimely passing saying he and the First Lady were deeply saddened and called the Harvard educated lawyer a dedicated public servant who fought tirelessly for the people of New Jersey for more than two decades. Governor Christie called Adler a fine public servant and a good person whose death came as an awful shock.
