Senate Republicans Gerald Cardinale (Bergen), Michael Doherty (Hunterdon, Somerset, Warren) and Kevin O’Toole (Bergen, Essex, Morris, Passaic) issued the following statement about their service on the seven-member “Senate Select Committee on Investigation,” which was initiated today by the full Senate:
“We thank Senate Republican Leader Kean, Senate President Sweeney and Chairwoman Weinberg for their confidence in us to serve the people on this committee in a rational and bipartisan fashion.
“We encourage members of this committee to engage with us on a judgment-free, apolitical fact-finding mission that fully and equally involves all committee members from both parties.
“This is a great responsibility that we take very seriously. We look forward to diligently carrying out our duties on this committee and putting this issue to rest.”
