Assemblyman Ronald Dancer dies at 73, spent two decades in the Legislature

A graduate of the Peddie School in Hightstown and Rutgers University, Dancer served in the New Jersey General Assembly from 2002 until his death. “I am saddened to learn of the loss of a true gentleman in New Jersey politics.
In his two decades of public service in the Assembly, Ron Dancer was always someone who strived to work across the aisle,” Assembly Speaker Craig J. Coughlin (D-Middlesex) said in a statement.
“A veteran himself, he leaves behind a legacy of advocacy on behalf of our military men and women. He was also a champion for New Jersey’s agricultural and horse racing communities, and contributed greatly to innovative expansions of our state’s tourism – most recently being the sponsor of legislation that will widen the economic opportunity for our wineries and farms.”
“His absence will certainly be felt by all of us in the Assembly and by the residents of Ocean County he faithfully served. We extend our most heartfelt prayers to all family and friends mourning him,” Coughlin said.

Ronald Dancer’s Career, What was his profession?
Ronald S. Dancer was an American Republican Party politician. He spent nearly 20 years in the New Jersey General Assembly, initially representing the 30th legislative district between 2002 and 2012.
Mayor of plumsted
Dancer’s first elected office was serving on the Plumsted Township committee. He was chosen as mayor in 1990 and continued to be selected for one-year terms until 2011 when he retired from the committee. Ronald has served on the Ocean County Board of Social Services since 1997 (as Chair), the Ocean County Natural Lands and Farmland Preservation Advisory Committee since 1998, and the Ocean County Senior Services Advisory Council since 2002.
He was on the New Jersey Horse Racing Commission from 1999 to 2002. After retiring as mayor, he served as the business administrator for Plumsted Township. For a period of time, he held two elected positions—Plumsted Township committeeperson and Assemblyman.
This dual position, often called double dipping, was allowed under a grandfather clause in the state law enacted by the New Jersey Legislature and signed into law by Governor of New Jersey Jon Corzine in September 2007 that prevented dual-office-holding but allows those who had held both positions as of February 1, 2008, to retain both posts.
