Stating that County residents can have “great faith in our future, as the Commissioner Board looks ahead and continues to ensure that Hunterdon County is the safest, healthiest and best place to live, not only in New Jersey, but in the nation,” John E. Lanza was unanimously elected as Director of the Hunterdon County Board of Commissioners, at the annual re-organization meeting held in the Historic Courthouse in Flemington, on January 4th.
Lanza, who was sworn in by former Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli, said during remarks, “2022 begins year 3 of the COVID-19 pandemic. And as difficult and challenging as the pandemic has made governing, Hunterdon County has never faltered in our conservative fiscal philosophy, nor in delivering services to the public. And we never will.”

County Clerk Mary Melfi and County Commissioners Matt Holt and Susan J. Soloway, all re-elected by the voters in November, took their oaths of office during the ceremonies.

Retiring Senator Bateman’s Achievements Recognized By Hunterdon Board
Hunterdon County Board of Commissioners Director John E. Lanza pointed to Senator Kip Bateman’s leadership in gaining enactment of the anti-hazing law named for the late Timothy Piazza of Readington Township, as one of his major legislative achievements, when the Commissioners recognized and lauded the retiring Senator’s long public service career, during the Board’s Re-organization Meeting on January 4th.
Board Director Lanza, in presenting the Proclamation, stated, “Kip Bateman has been a great friend of Hunterdon County. He has been a fighter to preserve the environment and, over the course of his long service, has earned the respect of both his Republican and Democratic colleagues in the legislature.”
