On the Passing of Senator Tom Gagliano
Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) issued the following statement on the passing of Tom Gagliano:
“Senator Tom Gagliano was an extraordinary leader—smart, resourceful, tenacious, and effective. Tom was a force for what was good and honorable and won four competitive races for the state senate, the final one in a landslide. His colleagues in Trenton had such respect for him that they made him their leader. Tom made a lasting positive difference in the lives of the people of Monmouth. He leaves behind a great family.
“My wife Marie and I deeply cherished his friendship, insights and his sense of humor—and will always be grateful that he served several times as chairman of my congressional campaign.”
