In response to the death of former State Senator Ronald Rice, David Brogan, Executive Director and CEO of the New Jersey Apartment Association, released the following statement:

“The State of New Jersey suffered a significant loss with the passing of Senator Ron Rice. He was a friend, a champion for the people of Newark, his district, and the state as a whole.  He was truly passionate about what he believed in, and exemplified courage and tenacity on the issues that mattered most. As an outspoken advocate for housing, social justice, and criminal justice issues, Senator Rice will be sorely missed.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones.”
