Overflow Patriotic Crowd Salutes Hunterdon County Veterans
At Ceremony
An overflow crowd of flag waving Veterans and their family members united in honoring Hunterdon County’s 2018 Veterans Recognition Medal Class, who were saluted for their service to the nation by Hunterdon County officials, at the Opening Ceremonies of the County’s 4H and Agricultural Fair, in Ringoes, on August 22nd.

Special guest speaker Congressman Leonard Lance noted, “Hunterdon County has always done more than its share in responding to the nation’s call and done so proudly. President Abraham Lincoln called our nation ‘the last best hope of mankind,’ and it remains so today due to your service, and that of those who never returned home, and those who are serving now.”

Freeholder Board Director Matt Holt told the assemblage, “On behalf of my fellow Freeholders, our constitutional officers and our legislators, I extend our heartfelt appreciation to all the medal recipients, and to all the Veterans in attendance. It is our honor to be amongst you today. Thank you for your service.” 

Freeholders Authorize First
Major 9-1-1 Center Upgrade Since 2010

Improvements Being Made Despite No State 9-1-1 Funding
Hunterdon County’s Freeholder Board authorized the necessary upgrade of high tech communications equipment at the County 9-1-1 Center, at the August 21 st Freeholder meeting, even though the County has not received any monies from the state’s phone tax supported 9-1-1 fund for the last 12 years.

Freeholder John E. Lanza, the Board’s Public Safety liaison, stated at the meeting, “These upgrades are necessary to ensure our communication professionals are able to respond as efficiently as possible to any emergency call.”

Freeholder Lanza had recently joined Congressman Leonard Lance and Federal Communications Commissioner Mike O’Rielly, at the Hunterdon County Communications Center, as part of the pair’s effort to raise awareness that taxes dedicated to 9-1-1 systems are being diverted to other uses.
