Pascrell Celebrates Albio Sires
Paterson, NJ, December 21, 2021
U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) this morning celebrated the career of his close colleague Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ-08), who announced his retirement from Congress.
“Albio Sires is a giant in every sense of the word. For the last 16 years, I have had no better partner in Washington and North Jersey fighting for our neighbors,” said Rep. Pascrell. “Albio has battled for Amtrak and our commuters, he has battled for immigrants and human rights, and his battled to give the Garden State its rightful share of the pie we are so often denied. When we visited the terrible ICE facility in his district on Father’s Day, Albio was literally banging on the doors to get us in and get accountability for the men inside. There is nobody you’d want in a foxhole more than Albio. Our entire delegation will miss his leadership dearly. He’s my buddy and I’m going to miss him greatly. We have big shoes to fill.”
