WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Bob Menendez issued the following statement on the passing of Elnora Watson, executive director of the Urban League of Hudson County:

“Today we mourn the passing of a champion for all of us, a true public servant and community leader. Elnora Watson leaves a powerful and lasting legacy not only as the longtime leader of the Urban League of Hudson County, but as a neighbor, friend, and colleague who made life better for so many in her community. She was the personification of what it means to believe that we are all in this together, each of us working for the betterment of all of us. Elnora was one of those rare people we are lucky enough to work with who cared more about others than she cared about herself. She will be deeply missed by a grateful community that knows that God keeps a special place in heaven for people like Elnora Watson.”
