InfoA lifelong resident of Sussex County, Hal Wirths became an assemblyman in January 2018.

Wirths was the Labor commissioner from 2010 to 2016, reforming the department and returning the Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund to solvency. Under his leadership, and with legislative support, a federal tax hike that New Jersey employers were facing in January 2014 was eliminated; instead employers received a $380 million payroll tax cut in May 2016 thanks to the effects of his reforms.

Previously, he was a Sussex County freeholder from 2000 to 2010. He owned and managed furniture stores for almost 20 years, and was a founder of Noble Community Bank, now known as Highlands State Bank, where he serves on the board.

He resides in Hardyston with his wife and has two adult daughters.
