Assemblyman Rooney Retiring


Assemblyman Kevin J. Rooney (R-40) has announced that he will be retiring from the New Jersey General Assembly at the end of the current legislative term.

“This has been something I have been weighing for the past six months, as our family has grown and my business interests have diversified,” said Assemblyman Rooney. “I have spent the last 27+ years of my life in public service. As my time and attention are pulled in different directions, I have come to the decision to finish my legislative term and then turn my focus to those new opportunities. I pledge to my constituents in Bergen, Essex, Morris, and Passaic Counties that I will complete this term with the same commitment I always have given to providing accessible constituent services and voting based on fiscally conservative principles over the next fourteen months.”

Rooney became an Assemblyman in December 2016 and was re-elected in 2017, 2019, and 2021. Prior to that, he served a number of years on the Wyckoff Township Committee and Zoning Board of Adjustment, and as Wyckoff Mayor three times.

Essex County GOP Chairman Al Barlas is prepared to supplant Rooney.
