Rice Statement Praises the Life of Former Belleville Mayor Raymond Kimble
Trenton – The following is a statement issued by Senator Ronald L. Rice on the passing of former Belleville Mayor Raymond Kimble:
“Raymond was a dear friend of mine, our common bond was that we both dedicated our lives to public service. We served in the armed forces, devoted our lives to the public safety of others and sought public office to help people in our communities.
“He was a friend to all and was respected by friend and foe, regardless of political affiliation. He was always willing to reach out to others when they needed it most. Whenever I was in need, Raymond was there for me.
“Essex County lost a great leader and an even better person. He will be missed by all.”
