Newark - U.S. Senator Robert Menendez released the following statement on Speaker Robert's decision not to run for re-election:

"Joe Roberts has forged his place as one of the great Speakers of the General Assembly and will remain as an example to follow. Joe's understanding of the confluence of policy, politics and process, is a rare skill, one that he put to good work for the people of New Jersey. I salute his service and wish him well."
