Hunterdon Freeholders Choose Experienced
County Supervisor As Parks Director
Craig Evans, Hunterdon County Supervising Park Ranger and Dan Bush, Parks Director
The Hunterdon County Freeholders, fulfilling their goal of joining experience with vision in a new Parks Director, have named Holland Township’s Dan Bush, a 23-year veteran of Hunterdon County service, including 13 years in Public Works’ supervisory positions, as the County’s new Parks Division Head.

Freeholder Director John E. Lanza stated, “Our over 8600 acres of parkland, owned or managed by Hunterdon County, are arguably the County’s most prized and valuable asset, therefore, the protection, maintenance, and enhancement of the parks and parks programming are a priority for the Freeholder Board. That is why the selection of the right Parks Director is so significant. And Dan Bush is that right choice, as he brings together the two vital components necessary for successful parks management; experience and vision.”
