NJBIA Chief Government Affairs Officer Christopher Emigholz issued the following statement regarding Senator Steve Oroho’s announcement he will not be a candidate for re-election to the New Jersey Senate in November. Senator Oroho, (R-24), has served in the Senate since 2008 and is currently the Senate Republican leader.
“Throughout his career in the Legislature, Senator Oroho has been an effective and strong advocate for New Jersey businesses and for our economy,” Emigholz said.
“NJBIA appreciates the partnership we have had with Senator Oroho on so many important issues involving New Jersey businesses small and large, and the taxpayer community. We will truly miss his leadership in this space, as well as his collegial good nature that made sometimes difficult conversations with him so easy.
“We hope all is well with Senator Oroho and we wish he and his family the best in the future. We look forward to working with him to improve the outlook for New Jersey businesses and taxpayers in his final year with the Legislature.”
