NJ Housing & Community Development Association Statement on Passing of Asm. Jerry Green


Housing and Community Development Network of New Jersey (the Network) President and CEO Staci Berger issued the following statement on the passing of Assembly Housing and Community Development Chair Jerry Green (D-Union):

“Chairman Green was an advocate for housing and community development in New Jersey and a friend to our Network. We honored Asm. Green in 2011 as our ‘Legislator of the Year’ for his commitment to making NJ a more affordable place everyone can call home. It was a personal privilege to be recognized by him on the Assembly Floor during the Assembly’s 2016 Women History Month celebration.

“He spoke to our membership on numerous occasions, inspiring them to continue to fight for policies that strengthen our communities and he vowed to fight alongside us. Chairman Green’s passing is a tremendous loss for the community development sector, Union County, and the State of New Jersey. His work has left an impact on our state and we will miss him dearly. Our sympathies to the Green family during this difficult time.”
