“On behalf of the entire City of Newark, we want to congratulate our very own Senator Teresa Ruiz on becoming the first Latina to serve as New Jersey Senate Majority Leader. Senator Ruiz has always fought tirelessly for Newark families and the growth of our City. She exemplifies fearless leadership and is committed to changing policy that impacts black and brown communities and our urban centers. She has always been at the forefront of passing audacious, progressive, legislation, which has justly benefitted our entire state, especially the City of Newark.
As Mayor of Newark and President of the New Jersey Urban Mayors Association, I believe this is long overdue and exceptionally necessary during this time, when so much is at stake for our collective future. We all support her and will stand beside her in creating opportunities and smart legislation to move our State forward.
Senator Ruiz is from Newark. She represents everything we stand for and we are proud of it!”
