Steven V. Oroho is a Republican member of the New Jersey Senate, representing District 24. He was first elected to the chamber in 2008. Bills that have been sponsored by Senator Oroho include Senate Bill 3 and Senate Bill 52.[1]


Oroho graduated with a B.S. in Accounting from Saint Francis University.[2] Oroho served as a member of the Sussex County Board of Freeholders from 2005 to 2007 and was also a member of the Franklin Borough Council from 2001-2006.[3] He is a Certified Financial Planner for Stonebridge Capital Management.




On July 7, 2011, Democrats Ed Selby, Leslie Huhn and Jim Nye sent a letter to Republican incumbents Alison McHose, Gary Chiusano and Steven Oroho, challenging them to a series of debates to take place before the November 8 general election. Leslie Huhn stated that Republicans have "had it too easy" in recent elections, and that they have taken their constituents for granted for too long.[4]

The Democrats gave Republicans 10 days to respond. The same day (July 7), Lou Crescitelli, spokesman for the District 24 Republicans, confirmed the GOP incumbents will participate in the debates. Since redistricting took place, 11 new county municipalities were added to the district. Ed Selby (D) suggested the need to "expand"[4] because the newly annexed counties might not know the candidates as well. The invitation to debate was not sent to the two Independent candidates in Assembly District 24, Rose Ann Salanitri and Mark Quick.[4]
