Bramnick Seeking Senate Seat in LD21
Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick has announced his bid for state Senate in the 21st Legislative District after long-time Senator Tom Kean Jr. announced he will not seek re-election. Kean, the son of former Governor Tom Kean, has served in the Legislature for nearly 20 years. Kean posted a statement on Facebook saying, “Public service will always be a part of who I am and how I live my life, but after thoughtful discussion with my family, I have decided not to seek re-election for the State Senate in the 21st legislative district. It has been an honor to serve these communities and I will always cherish the countless friendships and memories we have made together. I am committed to continuing a bipartisan approach as a leader throughout the remainder of this term and will work every day to deliver solutions for my constituents.”
Assemblyman Bramnick has served in the New Jersey General Assembly since 2003, representing the 21st legislative district. He has served as the Assembly Republican Leader since January 2012. In a statement, Bramnick says, ““I am proud to announce that I am running to represent the residents of New Jersey’s 21st legislative district in the State Senate,” said Bramnick (R-Union). “It has been an honor to serve the residents in the State Assembly and I look forward to continuing that work in the State Senate. Tom Kean Jr. is a true statesman, strong advocate, thoughtful policymaker and friend. I wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.” The 21st Legislative District includes parts of Morris, Somerset and Union counties.
Assemblyman Jon M. Bramnick is an assistant professor of business law at Rider University and an adjunct professor of business law at Rutgers University. He is also a partner in the law firm of Bramnick, Rodriguez, Grabas & Woodruff, based in Scotch Plains. Bramnick, who is holding a virtual hearing next week on the unemployment benefits delay, motor vehicle commission, vaccine distribution and safe reopening of business says he would focus on constituent services in the state Senate.
