‘Hunterdon First’ Is Guiding Principle
For New County Board Director
Sue Soloway

Lanza To Serve As Deputy Director
Van Doren Sworn-in For Second Term
Announcing that the County Board will be guided by the principle of putting Hunterdon County First in 2021, Susan J. Soloway was unanimously elected Director of the newly re-titled Hunterdon County Board of County Commissioners, at the first ever live streamed County Re-organization meeting, held in the Historic Courthouse, in Flemington, on January 5.

Soloway, the former Mayor of Franklin Township entering her third year as a County Board Member, was joined in leadership of the Board by John E. Lanza, who was unanimously selected to serve as Deputy Director.

Shaun C. Van Doren, who served in 2020 as Board Director and was re-elected by the voters in November, was sworn in to a second term on the Board by County Clerk Mary Melfi.




Hunterdon Economic Program Overcame Pandemic Challenges To Support The Local Economy
The Hunterdon County Economic Development team more than met the challenges in support of the local economy throughout the pandemic year of 2020, Freeholder Matt Holt reported at the final County Freeholder meeting in December.

Holt, the Board’s liaison for Economic Development, stated, “From boosting tourism, to providing valuable assistance to municipalities, to working together with other Counties in our region, the Hunterdon County Economic Development Division provide itself a valuable resource as businesses dealt with restrictions imposed by the state.

Both the Hunterdon Main Streets and 579 Trail initiatives are bringing needed attention to the County’s agri-business and tourism opportunities and those efforts could not have been implemented at a more appropriate time than during this year.”
