Bob Menendez

U.S. Senate

Bob’s lifelong dedication to public service began in high school when he had the grades to get into the honors program, but couldn’t afford the books. He thought it was wrong that public schools would hold back any student capable of excelling simply because they didn’t have the money. At age 19, he led a petition drive to reform the local school board, and then was elected to that very board to begin making much-needed reforms.

This experience launched Bob’s lifelong fight to change who had influence in government, standing up to corruption in Union City to become its mayor, and fighting for New Jersey’s most vulnerable residents in the state legislature and U.S. House of Representatives. In 2006, Bob became the first Latino to represent New Jersey in the U.S. Senate, where he has built a reputation as a champion for the powerless against the powerful.

Today, Senator Menendez is recognized as a passionate advocate and an effective legislator. He provides strong leadership with a common sense voice, deftly using his institutional knowledge to build bipartisan support for legislative initiatives that break partisan gridlock and make a real difference in the lives of the people he proudly represents.
