NJ Legislature Approves Resolution Congratulating NJESA on its 50 Years

Senator James W. Holzaffel (R) and Assemblymen David W. Wolfe (R) and Gregory P. McGuckin (R) of the New Jersey Legislature provided a joint legislative resolution congratulating the New Jersey Electronic Security Alarm Association (NJESA) upon its fiftieth anniversary.

The resolution stated that the legislature recognizes that the NJESA is highly esteemed throughout the State for its steadfast commitment to ensuring the safety of the citizenry, businesses, and communities. It added that the strength and success of the State of New Jersey and the effectiveness of our American society depend, in great measure, upon superb organizations, exemplified by the New Jersey Electronic Security Association, whose members shape the future of the security industry.

In addition, the resolution added that, “For the past half-century, the New Jersey Electronic Security Association, or NJESA, has cultivated a sterling reputation of professional excellence by providing technical and management training, advocating for the legislative interests of the industry, and delivering the tools and services members need to grow and succeed in business.”

Lawmakers also expressed high regard for the NJESA and affirmed its significance in the Garden State. They also paid tribute to its meritorious record of service, leadership, and commitment, and extended sincere best wishes for continued success and prosperity in all the years to come.

NJESA president Christine Marzano stated, “To be recognized for our fiftieth anniversary and the importance of the association in the State of New Jersey by the legislature is certainly a great honor.”

The resolution was signed by Senate President Steven M. Sweeney (D) and Assembly Speaker Craig J. Coughlin (D), and attested by the Senate Secretary and the Assembly Clerk. A duly authorized copy was sent to the New Jersey Electronic Security Association.
