Oliver: Azzolina a ‘principled statesman’

Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver (D-East Orange) today called the late Joseph Azzolina “a rare blend of a legislator: a principled statesman with a strong entrepreneurial spirit.”

“His commitment to service, whether on the floor of the Assembly or Senate or on the floor of one of his many Food Circus Foodtowns was something that touched everyone who knew him.  Joe was not someone to leave a job unfinished, as evidenced by his long, successful life,” said Oliver.  “My heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends.  He will be missed.”
