South Jersey Times — On Feb. 2, the Salem County Board of Chosen Freeholders presented their Annual State of the County Address at Salem County Vocational Technical Schools.

The annual event is sponsored by the Salem County Chamber of Commerce.

“Good governing that truly benefits our residents requires cooperation and a solid working relationship between state, county, and municipal officials, regardless of political affiliation,” said Senate President Sweeney. “We are pleased to continue to work together with the Salem County Board of Chosen Freeholders.”

“The passion of our local officials and their strong desire to serve their communities is a unique asset to the county,” added Assembly Deputy Speaker Burzichelli. “With the experience of dedicated public servants and the fresh ideas of newly elected officials, we can work together to build a better future for the county and our residents.”
