Senator Joe Kyrillos Jr.
Honored at June 18th Township Committee Meeting
The Middletown Township Committee presented former New Jersey Senator Joseph M. Kyrillos Jr. with the Key to the Township and a proclamation recognizing his 30 years of dedicated public service at the Monday, June 18th Township Committee Meeting. They also declared June 18, 2018 'Senator Joe Kyrillos Day'
Kyrillos is a long-time Middletown resident. He began his legislative tenure in 1988 at the age of 27, making him the second youngest person elected since the 1947 Constitutional Convention. He served four years as a member of the New Jersey Assembly, followed by 26 years as a New Jersey Senator.
Throughout his legislative career, Kyrillos made a tremendous impact in the area of economic development, has been pivotal in dealing with education policy reforms, lead the early fight for clean ocean and beach legislation, pushed green acres and open space efforts, and tirelessly helped us rebuild in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
We are fortunate that our community will continue to benefit from Kryillos' economic insight, integrity, and strong leadership. Click HERE to watch the presentation.
