“Cary Edwards was without question one of New Jersey’s finest public servants.
“Whether it was serving in the General Assembly, in the governor’s office, as attorney general or as chairman of the State Commission of Investigation, he always made sure to put the people first and politics last.
“His great service will long be remembered as an example to everyone.
“On behalf of the New Jersey General Assembly, I send our thoughts and prayers to his family and friends at this difficult time.”
