MORRIS COUNTY — Morris County Freeholder Hank Lyon, who is retiring from the county governing board at the end of the year, was presented with a parting gift this week by his Freeholder colleagues: a retirement rocking chair.

Lyon, who is the youngest freeholder, at just 29-years-old, is in his sixth year as a freeholder. He told a holiday gathering at the County Administration Building in Morristown on Wednesday that he would be pursuing a law degree once he exits public life. He joked about being the youngest freeholder in county history (Hank was just 24 when first elected) and, maybe, coming back later in life to take a shot at being the oldest elected freeholder!

Congratulations to Freeholder Hank in his new life. Thanks for your service to the county!
