|Info||A 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.
