2017 County Republican Candidates

 

Freeholder Director Lillian Burry

Lillian Burry has served on the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders since 2006. In 2008, she was elected Freeholder Director for the first time and became the first woman in County history to be elected to this position. Lillian now serves as Freeholder Director in 2017 for the fourth time. Prior to 2006, Lillian served three terms on the Colts Neck Township Committee, including stints as Mayor and Deputy-Mayor. Years before that in Matawan, Lillian was the first woman ever elected to the Borough Council.

Under her leadership as Freeholder Director, the Board has made many improvements to County government, including strict oversight of spending and budget practices. With Lillian’s guidance, the Board of Chosen Freeholders has introduced a budget for 2017 that is $24.6 million lower than the 2016 budget and $11.8 million lower than 2006 spending. Burry is completing her perhaps most accomplished term on the Board of Chosen Freeholders. Her work was instrumental in the acquisition of Fort Monmouth from the federal government.

She has been named person of the year by the Latino-American Council, the Fraternal Order of the Police, the Conservation Foundation, the Agricultural Commission, Marine Corps League, and Historic Association. She received the 2012 Spinnaker Award and was also recently selected as the winner of the 2017 New Jersey Women of Achievement Award by the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs (NJSFWC) of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC). She is a dedicated public servant to Monmouth County and its residents.

 

Freeholder Candidate Pat Impreveduto

Pat Impreveduto has been a Holmdel Township Committeeman for 9 years. He has lived in Monmouth County since 1984 and has since served the community and its residents. As the Mayor of Holmdel from 2011-2015, Pat emphasized development in Holmdel and reinvented what is now known as Bell Works. With the PILOT program in place, Bell Works brings a projected additional $87 million to the Holmdel taxpayer. During Superstorm Sandy, Pat relentlessly worked to keep all Holmdel residents informed and safe. He held townwide gatherings for Holmdel residents and arranged for free shelter and food for those affected by the storm.

In addition to his public service, Pat has spent his life in education as both a teacher and an administrator. Since 2011, he has been the Associate Director of the Middle States Association of Colleges Schools and Schools. He is responsible for the accreditation of approximately 500 public, private, charter, and parochial schools. Pat also served on the Holmdel Board of Education from 2001 through 2007.

His combined experience of public service and education make him a great candidate for Monmouth County Freeholder.
