MORRIS COUNTY —Mike Crispi, 24, is strongly considering a run for the Freeholder seat formerly held by Hank Lyon (Lyon is now pursuing a run for the General Assembly in Legislative District 26).
Crispi, a Cedar Knolls resident, believes he may be the answer to directly combat the rising issues in Morris County while persevering the aspects that make the county great.
Crispi captured the attention of his Young Republican associates Sunday night when he declared, “We have, in my mind, one of the most enviable places to live in the United States. With that being said it blows my mind that we are experiencing a rise in our median age.” “The question has been asked many times in the past few months by elected officials; how can we reverse this trend? Well the answer lies in true fiscal conservatism,” he continued.
Crispi believes that his youth and experience as well as his unique credentials and perspective may prove greatly beneficial for the citizens of the county. Crispi is a former collegiate athlete at Elon University and currently serves as a member of the Morris County Young Republican Executive Board while also working as the Regional Manager of Allstate Benefits. In his role at Allstate Benefits, Crispi consults with various businesses throughout the state and helps them construct the best risk management strategies in the wake of healthcare reform.
Crispi also comes from a long line of public servants. His father, Paul Crispi, recently retired as Federal Security Director for the US Department of Homeland Security in New York; his mother worked for the Federal Aviation Administration. Additionally, his grandfather worked for the Department of Defense and his grandmother worked for the Veterans Administration.
