Veteran, educator, and Republican leader William Felegi of Lake Hopatcong announced that he will seek the GOP nomination for Morris County Freeholder in the June 2019 primary.

According to Reporting from Inside NJ: “I am running for Morris County Freeholder to offer Republican primary and general election voters new leadership committed to public service and embracing all that is great about Morris County while bringing people together in order to confront the challenges that lie ahead,” Felegi declared.

Serving eight years in the National Guard and earning the rank of sergeant, Felegi is now a special education teacher and adjunct professor at William Paterson University of New Jersey. He is also former President of the Jefferson Township Republican Club, former Chair of the Morris County Young Republicans, and a member of the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Former Morris County Freeholder Hank Lyon praised the candidate for his public service and offered an endorsement of his candidacy.

“Whether it was volunteering to serve our country in uniform or pursuing a career educating the next generation, Will Felegi has demonstrated a commitment to service above self. He represents the very best of America and Morris County. Will is someone who can be trusted to faithfully represent the people of Morris County as Freeholder,” Lyon stated.

Jordan Chester, who served with Felegi on the executive board of the Morris County Young Republican Organization from 2013-2016, also praised the candidate.

“I have seen Will Felegi’s exceptional work ethic, ability to forge alliances, and passion for the Republican cause firsthand. It’s these qualities, coupled with his intellect and strong moral compass, that make him well-prepared to serve on the freeholder board,” Chester said.

Felegi holds a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education and Social Studies from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania and a Masters of Education from William Paterson University of New Jersey. During his free time, he enjoys fishing, hunting, watching football and spending time with his dog, Angel. Felegi resides in the Lake Hopatcong section of Jefferson with his wife, Amanda.
