WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after the passing of former Congressman John Adler of New Jersey:

“I am deeply saddened by the death of former Congressman John Adler of New Jersey. Like all those who were privileged to know John, I admired and respected him as a dedicated and passionate public servant. From local government to the U.S. Capitol, John was a principled advocate of high ethical standards, a clean environment, and the economic security of all Americans. A life of service to his community and his nation was cut off far too soon—but in the time he was with us, John made a real and lasting difference. My sincere condolences are with his wife, Shelley, their four sons, and all those touched by this untimely loss.”
