From The Governor’s Office

Statement from Governor Murphy on Senator Ronald Rice's Retirement from the New Jersey Senate

August 18, 2022 |

“Ron Rice will leave the state Senate as one of its most transformational members, a true maverick whose legacy of legislative successes will stand clearly on its own. He understood that public office is not about doing what’s best for individual politics or promotion but what’s right for the people we serve. He forced his fellow legislators – and to be sure, governors – to confront uncomfortable truths and wasn’t afraid to be a lone voice of dissent if he believed such dissent shined a light on injustice. In doing so, he made us all better at our jobs. While I have no doubt Ron will continue to advocate forcefully for social justice and the betterment of every community of color so long as he is able, his resignation leaves a huge void in the Legislature that will be hard to fill. I will always be proud to have called him my partner but even prouder to call him my friend.”

Our path toward a stronger, fairer New Jersey begins in every local community – on every road we traverse, every community center we frequent, and every neighborhood we call home,” said Governor Murphy. “The vast assortment of investments presented today are evidence of what our local officials – and our residents – know all too well: the needs of our communities are great, but their potential is even greater. That potential can only be achieved through comprehensive state investments that promote lasting stability and growth for generations to come.”
