MORRISTOWN, N.J., Dec. 26, 2019 – Alison Deeb is proud to announce her candidacy for Morris County Freeholder in 2020. Deeb ran for Freeholder in 2012, and finished third after the winning ticket and incumbent in a strong field of ten candidates. Deeb hopes to secure the Republican Party Committee’s nod at the Convention in 2020 as well as the June Primary and November General Election.
Deeb was the first Republican elected to the Morristown Council in 15 years in 2007 and in her first year of office formed a budget subcommittee to identify wasteful spending. Deeb single-handedly identified $1.2 million in budget cuts without cutting services. Deeb’s priorities have always been cutting wasteful spending, trimming bloated bureaucracies while maintaining excellent services.
“I am incredibly honored to have served Morristown taxpayers for the past twelve years and look forward to serving all of Morris County as Freeholder. I want to continue the legacies ofFormer State Senator and Freeholder Leanna Brown, Former Freeholder Margaret Nordstrom and Former Freeholder Heather Darling, who brought integrity, wisdom, and principled leadership to the Freeholder Board. I fundamentally believe in less spending and less taxation and will fight corruption at all levels of government as I am a fiscal conservative. I like to thank about ways to improve government, am uniquely qualified as a program manager and consultant and can develop creative and innovative solutions to the same old problems. My twelve years of working in the County Seat has provided an excellent foundation as well as my Master’s degree in Public Administration, professional work experience as a Management Consultant and volunteer Board Service for First Night Morris County and Windmill Pond Townhome Association.”
Deeb’s Republican party experience includes: County Committee member since 2008; current Secretary of the Morristown Municipal Committee; assisting the late Leanna Brown; volunteering for Governor Christie for President, Senator McCain for President and Assemblyman Webber for Congress.
Deeb is Founder of MARDOG, Inc., a non-profit corporation since 2002, that founded the first off leash dog park in Morris County in collaboration with the Morris County Park Commission at no cost to taxpayers. MARDOG is currently committed to supporting responsible dog ownership as well as establishing dog parks in Morris County in towns that want them.
In April 2019, Deeb was awarded the Leadership Morris Achievement Award by the Morris County Chamber of Commerce.
“I truly started at the bottom in both politics and in public service, have worked and volunteered my way through the ranks and I’m ready and eager to make a difference in Morris County.” said Deeb.
