Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean issued the following statement on the passing of former Senator Leonard T. Connors, Jr.:

Former Senator Leonard T. Connors, Jr. passed away on Dec. 4th at the age of 87. (

“Len Connors represented the very best of elective government. He was serious, no nonsense, and focused on delivering small, effective government. That he served for nearly 50 years as mayor and more than 25 years in the Legislature is a testament to the great admiration he earned from generations of constituents.

“I’ve had the honor to serve alongside Len’s son, Senator Chris Connors, and I know how proud he must have been to see Chris fill his shoes so completely.

“On behalf of the entire Senate Republican caucus, I would like to offer Chris and the entire Connors family our condolences for their tremendous loss.”
