With the acceptance of his new position as Camden County director of Veterans Affairs, Assemblyman Jack Conners, (D-7), resigned today from the Legislature after 14 years of service.
“As I’ve said before, the General Assembly will sorely miss Jack Conners and his earnest desire to help the people of the State of New Jersey,” said Speaker Sheila Oliver, (D-34). “But I cannot think of anyone more suited for this position than Jack. As the Chair of the Assembly Military and Veterans Affairs Committee, he has been the Legislature’s leading advocate for service members and veterans. His absence will certainly be felt here. On behalf of the entire Assembly, we wish him all the best in his new endeavor.”
“Jack Conners is a one-of-a-kind class act,” added Assembly Majority Leader Joe Cryan, (D-20). “He is both a gentleman and a fierce advocate for the dedicated men and women of our military. As much as we hate to see him leave, this new position is ideally suited for him. Nobody will fight harder or do more to ensure that the veterans of Camden County are treated well and have access to all the benefits they’re entitled to. We wish Jack nothing but good fortune in this new position.”
Running in place of Conners is former legislative leadership staffer Troy Singleton.
