Linda Hynes for Burlington County Freeholder
Linda Hynes has dedicated more than a decade of her life to serving her community. Linda is currently serving in her second year as Deputy Mayor of Westampton Township. Prior to that, she served for five years on the Westampton Township Board of Education. Before that, she served as the PTA President of Westampton and as a local girl scout troop leader. Linda was always the first to step up when there was a need in her community.
Linda is a lifelong resident of Burlington County and is proud to raise her family here. Her daughter, Madeline, is 17 years old and a junior at Rancocas Valley High School; and her son, Michael, just turned 11 years old. Her husband, Alan, is also committed to public service and currently sits on the Westampton Board of Education and is thoroughly engaged in their son's sporting activities. They believe strongly in volunteerism and giving back to the community that they love.
Linda was raised by a single mother who sacrificed everything so that she could be the first in their family to go to college. Linda holds an Associate of Science degree from Burlington County College and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Rutgers University in Camden. She attended Widener School of Law where she received her Juris Doctorate degree. She has been an attorney of the State of New Jersey for the past twenty years.
Two years ago, Linda had the great honor of becoming a named partner in Domers, Bonamassa and Hynes. She specializes exclusively in family law and has concentrated her practice to Burlington County. Linda is also humbled to have been appointed by the New Jersey Supreme Court to serve on the Burlington County Ethics Committee where she is charged to investigate and prosecute allegations of attorney misconduct. She is currently finishing her eighth year in that role and is very proud of that service.
Linda’s education, background, skills and commitment to Burlington County would be an asset to the Burlington County Freeholder Board. She looks forward to engaging with all residents of Burlington County to earn their trust, support and eventual vote on November 5, 2019.
