Black Lawyers Alliance Support Johnson for State Senate

Bergen County, NJ – A prominent group of African American attorneys who live and/or work in Bergen County came out to support Assemblyman Gordon M. Johnson for State Senate. Johnson would become the first Black Senator from Bergen County in the 175 year history of the New Jersey State Senate.

“Gordon Johnson becoming the next Senator of Bergen County’s 37th District is a historic opportunity to elevate a qualified and experienced legislator whose presence will assist the New Jersey Legislature in reflecting its diverse population both in Bergen County and New Jersey,” said attorney Jason E. Foy of the Bergen County Black Lawyers Alliance.

“We support Gordon Johnson because he is a long-time, trusted public servant. Over the years, he has kept his promises and remained committed to serving the interests of the diverse constituents of Bergen County’s 37th District. Gordon is a proven advocate for all of our community and especially for those most vulnerable among us. He has been a model of public service his entire life and we know he will be a powerful, steadfast voice for Bergen County in the State Senate,” Foy concluded.
