Meet the Freeholders: The Middlesex County Regional Chamber of Commerce continues its economic development series on Tuesday, March 15, 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. with a discussion featuring three members of the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders: Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios, Freeholder Kenneth Armwood and Freeholder H. James Polos. The location of this morning educational and networking event is Pines Manor, located at 2085 Lincoln Highway (Route 27) in Edison.
The event is an extension of the Chamber’s noted “Meet the Mayors” series, which examines town-by-town economic development challenges and successes, as well as how towns can collaborate to improve regional transportation access.
This new series will take things to the County level, said Chamber President Lina Llona. “From the Middlesex County Arts and Cultural Trust Fund to plays and music in our county parks to the role we play on the most heavily travelled commuter railline in the country, our county plays an integral role in Central Jersey’s economic prospects,” she said.
Like the Meet the Mayors series, this discussion will be moderated by Bert Baron of WCTC 1450 AM.
