March 27th, 2017 Meeting , iPlayAmerica, Freehold Township – Lillian Burry, Monmouth County Freeholder Director Lillian Burry and Patrick Impreveduto, Holmdel Township Committeeman address the Freehold Township Republican Club focusing on their backgrounds and experience, and their focus as elected officials in continuing the positive reputation on Monmouth County.

 Ms. Burry expressed her gratefulness in the opportunity to serve the public for over 35 years. She especially shared her beginnings in the Matawan leadership in contributing on environmental issues such as the Imperial Oil dumping waste oil in the Burnt Fly Bog water aquifer which also affected the well-being of Aberdeen, Marlboro and Holmdel. This circumstance created the first major Super Fund site in country. Now many years later, that site has been made safe and reclaimed as a recreation park.

As she moved onto Colts Neck and joined its leadership, Lilian, likened to Freehold Township’s principals, expanded her focus on farmland reclamation and retention of open space.

Ms. Burry was called upon to run for Freeholder, when there was doubt a Republican candidate succeeding during the turbulence of “Big Rig”. However, because of her reputation of integrity and hard work, she prevailed and has served as a Freeholder since 2005.

Her commitment, passion, drive and overwhelming support inspires her to seek reelection and continue to serve the residents of Monmouth County.



Patrick Impreveduto, acknowledged appreciation to be her running mate and spoke of his career in education since 1974. He began his political calling in the early “80’s” by serving on an education committee for the then US Senator Robert Torricelli. Patrick joined the Republican Party upon moving to Monmouth County, and lauded upon witnessing the many accomplishments of the Freeholders, such as keeping expenses and taxes in check, the wonder of its parks and libraries, the professionalism of the Sheriff’s department, just to name a few. His hope is to add a “fresh perspective” to what already exists. His vision of politics is global in wanting to get everyone involved. His personal commitment is to listen to the residents he represents, and promised to give an “ear” to all in the county throughout his tenure when elected.


Along with the presentations and dinner, there was a birthday cake celebrating club member, county committee-person, former primary candidate for Governor and U.S. Senator, Rich Pezzullo on his 59th birthday.
