Freeholder Honored During Her Last Meeting
Union County Freeholder Deborah Scanlon will retire at the end of this year.
Freeholder Deborah P. Scanlon, a resident of Union, was honored by her colleagues on the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders during her last meeting as a freeholder this month.
Scanlon, a five-term Freeholder whose retirement is effective at the end of this year, distinguished her career by serving as a steady advocate for women, children, and families in need.
A two-time survivor of cancer, she championed cancer-prevention programs including mammography awareness for young and underprivileged women. She served as a liaison to Runnells Hospital, and worked to expand one of the county’s most popular family services, the Union County Child Safety Seat program, which has provided more than 50,000 inspections.
