It is with great regret that I learned of the passing of Somerville Police Officer Claude Racine.
I came to know him about four years ago when he invited me to his home for a birthday celebration. I showed up unexpectedly, but in time to meet his wonderful family, and his gracious friends. In the short time I knew him, I found him to be a loving husband and father, a patriot, and a dedicated public servant.
Our country and the State of New Jersey has lost a good man, and a great cop. He will be sadly missed.
His family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
