FLEMINGTON, N.J. --- Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) issued the following statement on the passing of former New Jersey State Senator William E. Schluter:

“Bill Schluter epitomized public service in New Jersey.  A person of impeccable integrity, he significantly raised the ethical standards of our State Legislature.  A fine hockey player in his youth at Exeter and Princeton, he was the consummate gentlemen on the playing field of life.  I have lost a close friend and political mentor.  Heidi and I extend our deepest sympathy to Nancy, his wonderful wife of 68 years, to their six children and to their many grandchildren.”
