 HONORING ASSEMBLYMAN TIM EUSTACE'S SERVICE TO THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY

                                 ______
                                 

                          HON. JOSH GOTTHEIMER

                             of new jersey

                    in the house of representatives

                        Wednesday, May 23, 2018

  Mr. GOTTHEIMER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor New Jersey 
Assemblyman Tim Eustace.
  Assemblyman Eustace embodies all that makes North Jersey such a 
special place to live. I am honored to call Tim a friend and partner in 
the fight to help our region's families and businesses. Tim is a loyal 
son of New Jersey, the state that he loves so dearly, and has served so 
well.
  Tim is New Jersey through and through. He was born in Passaic, went 
on to attend Blair Academy in Blairstown, and later graduated from 
Ramapo College in Mahwah. Tim quickly became a leader in Maywood as 
someone his neighbors knew they could count on. Starting his own small 
business, Tim helped countless patients as a licensed chiropractor and 
went on to become president of the Maywood Chamber of Commerce and 
Rotary Club. Before ascending to the New Jersey State Assembly, Tim was 
elected Borough of Maywood Mayor, Councilman, and Council President. In 
each role throughout his career, Tim's leadership has been shaped by a 
deep commitment to doing what's right and what's best for North Jersey.
  As a champion of the environment, Tim has successfully protected the 
beautiful natural landscapes and resources in New Jersey. He is on the 
front lines fighting for clean water in North Jersey, helping keep our 
kids and families safe. Tim's impact on communities across the state 
and his outspoken dedication to public health will be felt for 
generations to come. That's one reason why I am excited to see all that 
Tim accomplishes in his new role at the North Jersey District Water 
Supply Commission.
  As a trailblazer in the LGBTQ community, Tim is a tireless advocate 
for equal rights for all Americans. He is only the second openly gay 
person to be elected to the state legislature and played a key role in 
making marriage equality the law of the land in New Jersey. Along with 
his beloved late husband Kevin Williams, Tim made it possible for 
openly gay couples to access joint adoption in New Jersey by bravely 
breaking down barriers. Tim continues to be an incredible dad to Kyle 
and Cory to this day.
  Mr. Speaker, I sincerely thank Assemblyman Eustace for his friendship 
and for his service on behalf of New Jersey. I wish him all the best in 
continuing to serve our state.
