Hunterdon Freeholders Succeeded In Meeting Key Challenges In 2019
During 2019, the Hunterdon County Freeholder Board lived up to Freeholder Director Suzanne Lagay’s projection, at the January 7th re-organization meeting, that the 2019 Board would be, “a strong fiscally conservative governing body that proves with careful analysis, investing in the future is profoundly conservative.”

History was made on January 7, 2019 when Lagay was unanimously selected by her colleagues for a second tour of duty as Board Director, marking the first time in the County’s 305-year history that a woman has served as Director twice. Lagay also served as Director in 2016.

With a clear, blue sky as a backdrop, under our nation’s flag, gently waving in the breeze, Artie Muller, U.S. Army Vietnam Veteran and Executive Director of Rolling Thunder, Inc., reminded a hushed and respectful gathering of Hunterdon Polytech students, staff, and community leaders that our freedom comes at a cost paid by the men and women who valiantly serve in the military.

For more than 30 years, Rolling Thunder, the organization Muller co-founded, has fulfilled its mission to speak on behalf of the tens of thousands of Prisoners of War-Missing in Action (POW/MIA) of all wars.

Muller was the Keynote Speaker in a moving ceremony to dedicate a POW/MIA Chair of Honor at the Central Campus of Hunterdon County Polytech Career and Technical High School. Held just days before Thanksgiving on Nov. 25, it was a fitting time to thank our military and their families for their bravery and sacrifices serving our nation, with a tribute to those who never returned.

Van Doren, the Freeholder Board’s Engineering and Public Works liaison, stated, “The protection of our residents and the motoring public by investing in significant maintenance of the County’s 246 miles of roadways, 246 bridges and over 2000 culverts continue to be a priority for the Freeholders.
