During this time I was a (3) Term President of F.O.P. #29; (1) Term State Trustee; (1) Term Recording Secretary and was on the Contract Committee from 2004-2015. As a member of the Contract Committee for Lodge #29 In addition to being an active part of the Union I was in Internal Affairs for 6 years, ERT (Emergency Response Team) member and Team Leader for 12 years, Training Coordinator for 4 years, and oversaw Policy and Procedures at Hunterdon County for 5 years.
I think it’s improving and headed in the right direction with the new administration that is in plave
I would support a school resource officer or class III. I’d like to see more police, fire and military support in the school and community and spread it throughout the County.
