WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Bob Menendez today released the following statement as former State Senate President and Nutley Mayor Carmen Orechio is laid to rest tomorrow:

“Carmen Orechio dedicated his life to public service and improving the lives of New Jerseyans and the community he loved.  He was a tireless advocate for children and seniors, and fought passionately to enhance public safety, health care, and the quality of life of the people he served.  Carmen Orechio was a legend who will be sorely missed, but never forgotten.  I’d like to extend my sincere condolences to the Orechio family and to the residents of Nutley who mourn today but will always hold Carmen in their hearts.”
