MORRIS COUNTY — Heather Darling took the Oath of Office for Freeholder on Friday, January 5, at the Morris County Administration and Records Building, Morristown.
Darling, a 43-year Morris County resident, ran for the open Morris County Freeholder seat vacated by Former Freeholder Hank Lyon, who chose not to run for re-election.
Heather fully understands the role of a Freeholder and is prepared to take on the tasks associated with that job specifically. She will be focusing exclusively on County issues and leave state and federal issues like minimum wage and immigration enforcement to the appropriate governing bodies. She is a fiscal conservative interested in preserving the character and values of Morris County in a manner that is affordable and beneficial to our residents while upholding the Constitution, according to her oath of office, in performing her duties as Freeholder.
While she intends to bring a fresh perspective to the Freeholder Board, she is aware of issues within the county. The three main categories that are central to Heather’s goals are the promotion of economic growth and job creation; fiscal responsibility and free enterprise and professional integrity and transparency.
