New Jersey Governor Murphy's Statement on the Passing of Steve Adubato, Sr.

TRENTON, NJ (STL.News) “Few have had as large or as meaningful and longstanding an impact on the City of Newark and the lives of its residents as ‘Big Steve.’  In politics and civic life, he guided multiple generations of leaders.  The North Ward Center remains a place where people of all ages and abilities from underserved backgrounds can find opportunities that would have otherwise escaped them.  At a time when others were all too quick to write Newark off, Steve saw its potential and worked tirelessly to realize its promise.  The rising Newark of today is a testament to his dedication, and its continued momentum will be among his many legacies.”

“Tammy and I send our thoughts and prayers to his wife, Fran, his children Steve, Michele, and Theresa, and everyone who called him a friend and mentor.”
