Okay, something lighthearted here, and at the same time an opportunity to test your knowledge of your Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders. Our party has had majorities on the Board for most of the past century, and many fine men and women have served and currently serve, providing good Republican government to this great county.
Manalapan Township Committeeman Andrew F. Lucas is one of our candidates this year, along with Freeholder Anna C. Little.
Andrew is a farmer, and would be the only farmer on the 2007 Board.

Trivia question:
Who was the most recent farmer to serve on the Board, and when did he serve?

Mr. Green Jeans?


I am totally guessing: Harry looked like he might have done the farming thing at some time or other. Right or wrong?

Honest Abe said...

Not Harry, Jim, but it was in his blood. One of his grandmothers came from an agricultural background in Howell.
Try a little earlier.

William H Seward said...

The suspense is killing me!

How about Marcus Daly?

Honest Abe said...

Not Marcus Daly, although this freeholder did serve on the Board during part of the time that the late Freeholder Daly served.
Interesting that you bring up Marcus Daly, though, as I have been considering a tribute post about him. He was a man ahead of his time.
