Bob Menendez Life

Robert Menendez (born January 1, 1954) is an American politician serving as the senior United States Senator from New Jersey, a seat he has held since 2006.

A member of the Democratic Party, he was first appointed to the U.S. Senate by Governor Jon Corzine, and was later elected Chair of the United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations in January 2013.

He stepped down from that post in April 2015 upon being indicted on federal corruption charges. In 1974, at the age of 20, he was first elected to the Union City School District's Board of Education.

In 1986, he won the election for Mayor of Union City.

In 1988, while continuing to serve as mayor, he was elected to represent the state's 33rd district in the General Assembly of New Jersey and, within three years, moved to the New Jersey State Senate, upon winning the March 1991 special election for the 33rd Senate district.

The next year he won a seat in the Congress of the United States for the House of Representatives and represented New Jersey's 13th congressional district for six two-year terms, from 1993 to 2006.

In January 2006, he was appointed to fill the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Jon Corzine (who had been elected 54th Governor of New Jersey), and was elected to a full six-year term in November; he was reelected in 2012 and 2018. In 2015, Menendez was indicted on federal corruption charges in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, related to alleged favors he did for Florida ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen and gifts he received from him, including campaign donations and private flights.

Menendez pleaded not guilty to all charges.

His trial ended in a hung jury and a mistrial on November 16, 2017.

On January 31, 2018, the Justice Department announced that it was dropping all charges against Menendez.

In April 2018, Menendez was "severely admonished" by the United States Senate Select Committee on Ethics.

Early life

Menendez was born on January 1, 1954, in New York City to Cuban immigrants who had left Cuba a few months earlier, in 1953. His father, Mario Menéndez, was a carpenter, and his mother, Evangelina, was a seamstress. The family subsequently moved to New Jersey, where he grew up in an apartment in Union City. He attended Union Hill High School, where his speech teacher, Gail Harper, helped him develop as a public speaker. Menendez has said, "My mother and Miss Harper made me understand the power of education, what it means to put a premium on learning and working hard." While at Union Hill, Menendez became the student body president. He went on to become the first in his family to go to college, attending Saint Peter's College in Jersey City, where he became a member of the Lambda Theta Phi fraternity. He graduated with a B.A. in political science, and earned his Juris Doctor degree from Rutgers Law School in 1979 at the Newark campus. Menendez was admitted to the New Jersey Bar in 1980 and became a lawyer in private practice.


Bob Menendez Career

Early political career

Menendez, a student at the University of Union City, was an aide to Mayor William V. Musto at the beginning of his career. He was elected to the Union City Board of Education in 1974, becoming the youngest candidate to ever win the board's election. He unsuccessfully attempted Musto for mayor in 1982. He defeated Musto for mayor on May 13, 1986. Future Mayor Bruce Walter Walter Walter's Alliance Civic Association ticket, which included future mayor Bruce Walter, secured 57% of the vote, defeating the reform slate Transformation '86 and the incumbent Union City Together campaign. Musto had been found guilty of misconduct, and Menendez had testified against him, but Musto maintained some clout. Musto's political machine was represented by the Together group, which also included his wife, Commissioner Rhyta Musto. Menendez served as mayor from 1992 to 1989, when he was elected to represent the state's 33rd district in the General Assembly in November 1987. Following the death of Christopher Jackman, he continued to serve in both capacities until March 1991, when he jumped from the Assembly to the New Jersey Senate after winning the special election.
