Allison Eckel Appointed To Commissioners Board
Allison Eckel is a resident of Medford Township and was appointed by the Burlington County Democratic Committee in 2022 to fill the vacancy left by Linda Hynes, who was appointed by Governor Murphy and confirmed by the New Jersey Senate to be a Superior Court Judge.
Eckel was on the Lenape Regional High School District's Board of Education for four years, representing Medford. Her prior community involvement includes work with the Garden State Council of Boy Scouts of America and as a Co-Leader of the Army's 561st Medical Company Family Readiness Group during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
“Our Board has succeeded in governing responsibly to support our county’s affordability and high quality of life, but also in a way that reflects our compassion and empathy for the struggles some residents face every day,” said Burlington County Commissioner Director Dan O’Connell. “We welcome Allison and are confident she will help uphold this tradition. We look forward to working with her to continue to make Burlington County the best place to live, work and raise a family.”
Eckel will serve as the Commissioners’ liaison to the Departments of Public Safety, Resource Conservation, Military Affairs, Board of Social Services and Prosecutor’s Office. She will also join Commissioner Hopson as a liaison to the Burlington County Women’s Advisory Council.
