Senator Mike Doherty
To Be Guest Speaker
At Hunterdon County
September 11th Remembrance Ceremony
Hunterdon County Sheriff Fred W. Brown will be joined by special guest speaker Senator Mike Doherty, law enforcement officials, and first responders from around the county, at the annual Hunterdon County September 11th Remembrance Ceremony, on the Historic Courthouse steps in Flemington, at 8:30 am on Friday, September 11th.
Sheriff Brown said, “Senator Doherty is a life-long New Jersey resident who has served Hunterdon County as Senator from NJ District 23 since 2009. The Senator is a West Point graduate, U.S. Army Veteran and presently serves as a Captain in the U.S. Army Reserve. As someone who has served our nation, Senator Doherty brings an important perspective to our County’s 9-11 Commemoration.”
Senator Doherty stated, “Nineteen years ago, on September 11, 2001, our world was forever changed, when we lost nearly 3000 souls, during the horror we all witnessed as the Twin Towers came down, the Pentagon was attacked and a field in Pennsylvania felt the impact of a plane, meant for our Nation’s capital that had its route altered through an example of true American heroism.
We come together each year on September 11th to honor and remember all of the innocent lives lost, the first responders who ran into danger to save their fellow man, with a promise to never forget this tragic day.”

Hunterdon Freeholders
Call On Legislators To Restore
$2.6 Million Cut To County’s Schools
Hunterdon County Freeholders have called for state legislative action to restore $2.6 million in state education aid cuts to twenty County school districts included in the Governor’s new proposed budget.

Freeholder John E. Lanza reported at the September 1st Freeholder Board meeting, “The Governor presented his second budget of the year on August 25th and, despite this second chance, he still cut school aid to 20 Hunterdon County school districts by over 2.6 million dollars.

Incredibly, there is no change from the Governor’s school aid cuts presented in February. This, despite the fact that the Governor proposes borrowing $4 billion dollars to support the state budget for nine months, until next June.”

The Hunterdon County Library is excited to announce new self-service stations inside the Rt. 12, North County and South County Branch libraries as well as the addition of the cloudLibrary app for smart device users, giving patrons two new options for convenient library use.

Hunterdon County Freeholder Zach Rich, Library Commission liaison, said, “The County’s libraries are a community resource and virtual options available for checking out library materials has allowed operations to continue safely. Non-patrons with smart devices will be able to use the new cloudLibrary app and if that isn’t an option, self-service stations inside the library offer the same services and are also no-contact.”

Self-service stations at Headquarters Library, North County Branch and South County Branch Hunterdon County Library allows users to easily borrow or renew items and check their account. The new stations are “low-touch” options for our users to safely check out and renew materials and manage their accounts without staff assistance.
