“Joe Kyrillos’s history of public service to Monmouth County and all of New Jersey is extraordinary. He has been the voice of reason that members of both parties in the New Jersey Senate have looked to for leadership on key issues since 1992.
“He led the effort to protect the Jersey Shore through the creation of the Shore Protection Fund, he pioneered efforts to grow the state economy through the creation of the Business Employment Incentive Program (BEIP), and he’s been at the forefront of countless other efforts to improve the lives of his fellow New Jerseyans.
“Joe was a young 27-year-old when he first entered the Legislature, and after three decades of service, he’ll still be a young 57-year-old when he retires from the Senate. Even though my friend Joe Kyrillos may be retiring from public office, I have no doubt his service to his community will continue in other ways for many years to come.”
