The Rebovich Institute for New Jersey Politics at Rider University will host a discussion with Republican New Jersey legislative leaders on March 22 at 7 p.m. in Lynch Adler Hall 202 on the Rider campus.

“An Evening with Steven Oroho and John DiMaio” will feature the new leadership of Senate and Assembly Republicans as the GOP advances in the New Jersey Legislature. Republican Senate Leader Oroho and Republican House Leader DiMaio each recently began their leadership roles.

“We will use this rare legislative leadership change opportunity to explore how their policy and strategy can affect the fortunes of their party and state,” said Micah Rasmussen, director of the Rebovich Institute.

Oroho, who is currently serving his fourth term in the New Jersey State Senate, represents the 24th legislative district in the northwest of the state. He has been re-elected three times since his first election to the State Senate in 2007. A certified financial planner with a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Saint Francis University, he worked in finance before entering politics. As a legislator, he often focuses his work on fiscal and economic development issues.

DiMaio represents the 23rd District, which includes parts of Hunterdon, Somerset and Warren counties. He has been a Member of Assembly since 2009. A longtime resident of Hackettstown, he was first elected to public office at age 23 and has since held a variety of positions, including alderman and mayor of Hackettstown and landowner of the Warren County. DiMaio also owns a general business called A. DiMaio and Son Inc.

The Rebovich Institute for New Jersey Politics is dedicated to public service and the scholarly analysis of government, public policy, campaigns, and elections in New Jersey. It was founded in 2001 by the late Professor David Rebovich (1949–2007). Today, the Rebovich Institute is a vibrant and creative home where students can network, study, and gain hands-on experience in New Jersey politics.

“An Evening with Steven Oroho and John DiMaio” is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required by visiting
