Alex Decroce, NJ Assembly GOP Leader, Dead at Statehouse
GOP Assemby Leader Alex DeCroce has passed at 75 of a heart attack. In the last legislative session alone, DeCroce had sponsored bills requiring a general vote prior to the dissolution of a public library, protecting the Highlands Area while respecting Fair Housing requirements, and requiring public schools to educate children about the contributions of our veterans. Perhaps most poignant, DeCroce also recently sponsored a bill to allocate $1.7 million to the purchase of defibrillators for the public use in municipalities. Though DeCroce has passed, there is hope that his good works will live on through his memory and the legislation he started.
