“Art Albohn was a model legislator and leading member of the Republican caucus during the 1980s and 1990s who always asked the questions that needed to be asked,” said Assemblyman Richard Merkt, his former legislative aide. “He served New Jersey and his constituents with integrity and rigor and was one of the most dedicated public officials I have ever known.”
Merkt said that Albohn was best known for casting the most ‘no’ votes in the Legislature. “For that reason he became known as ‘Dr. No.’ But because he was one of the few legislators who read every bill put before him, I knew him as ‘Dr. Know,'” said Merkt.
