What: Designation of Jerry Green Memorial Highway

The State of New Jersey has enacted legislation to designate a portion of State Highway Route 27 in Union County as the “Jerry Green Memorial Highway” to honor the late Assemblyman Jerry Green for his extensive public service and contributions to the state. Born in Roselle, NJ, Green dedicated his life to serving his community and the state. He held various public offices in Union County, including positions on the Union County Planning Board, Union County Utilities Authority, and Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders. Green was elected to the New Jersey General Assembly in 1991, where he served until his death in 2018, making him the longest-serving member of the Assembly at that time. He passed away on April 18, 2018, leaving behind a legacy of dedicated public service.
