“Since I have become Freeholder Director, I have wanted to make it easier for the community to interact with us,” said Cape May County Freeholder Director Gerald M. Thornton. “The Freeholder Board has made a number of important steps to accomplish this. We are always looking for new ideas to engage with the community.”
This month’s newsletter went out to over 1,000 people. The highlighted stories included tourism revenue increasing in 2018, highlighting the County’s Memorial Day ceremony, and reminding residents of the upcoming Code Red test.
