U.S. Congressman Frank A. LoBiondo (NJ-02) today issued the following statement upon the news that New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg will retire at the end of his current term:
"Frank Lautenberg has been a friend, a tireless advocate, and a great partner to work with on issues facing New Jersey. Whether it was protecting our tourism-based economy or ensuring critical jobs at the FAA Technical Center and Coast Guard Training Center were not sent out-of-state, Senator Lautenberg was always willing to listen to my concerns and work together on the solutions. Whenever I called, he would put New Jersey's interests before party politics. I thank him for his service and wish him and his family all the best."
