Senator Steve Oroho is currently serving his fourth term in the New Jersey State Senate. He represents the 24th Legislative District in the northwestern part of the state which comprises all of Sussex County, and parts of northern Warren and Morris counties.

Before entry into public office, Senator Oroho had extensive professional experience in the finance departments of top New York City firms, including work for Price Waterhouse, W.R. Grace and Company, as well as Young and Rubicam where he held the position of Senior Vice President of Finance. Senator Oroho is presently a certified financial planner with Stonebridge Capital Management.

Senator Oroho first ran for public office in 2001 winning a seat on the Franklin Borough Council. He moved up to the Sussex County Freeholder Board in 2005 upon his successful election and served one term before winning election to the State Senate in 2007, and has twice been re-elected.

In the State Senate, Senator Oroho sits on three committees: the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee, the Senate Economic Growth Committee, as well as the Senate State Government, Wagering, Tourism and Historic Preservation Committee. He was also appointed by Governor Christie to serve on the Governor's Red Tape Review Commission. In addition, he served as a member of the New Jersey Unemployment Insurance Task Force.

In the State Legislature, Senator Oroho takes a particular interest in budgetary and economic development issues. He has helped craft, in a bipartisan fashion, most every major tax reform issue enacted in New Jersey over the past decade. His contributions in this particular area have earned him numerous awards and citations from the business community at-large in the state, an honor of which he is infinitely proud.

He recently served as the co-chair of the bipartisan Economic and Fiscal Policy Worgroup, which developed recommendations for reform to address the fiscal problems facing government and taxpayers in New Jersey.

In addition, Senator Oroho is involved with several community nonprofits, including serving on the Advisory Board of the Center for Prevention and Counseling in Newton, and is active in his church where he is a lector and an honored member of the Knights of Columbus.
