Burlington County Commissioners’ statement on the passing of Gov. Jim Florio

The Burlington County Commissioners released the following statement in response to the passing of Gov. Jim Florio:

“All of Burlington County and New Jersey mourn the loss of Governor Florio. He will be remembered as a leader and a statesman who championed New Jersey’s environment, public safety and education throughout his career. He was a courageous fighter who never backed down from a challenge or avoided a vote or action because it might also be unpopular. He was a friend of Burlington County, and we were immensely proud he chose to make our county his adopted home during his later years.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family during this time of loss.”
