RACE TO WATCH: Burlington County Freeholder

October 16, 2018

Candidate Spotlight: Freeholder Director Katie Gibbs

Gibbs was elected in a bi-partisan and unanimous vote of her fellow Freeholders to serve as Director of the Board for 2018, after serving as Deputy Director in 2016 and 2017.

Burlington is the only county in NJ to have two women serving in both leadership positions of Director and Deputy Director.

As Director, Kate orchestrated a 2018 county budget that lowers spending and taxes. She also helped secure $20 million in grants to support security initiatives of county schools and passed an equal pay resolution and instituted policy for all county employees take or retake sexual harassment training.

Gibbs lives in Lumberton with her Burlington County Animal Shelter rescue-dog Fitz. She currently works in Business Development for the Engineers Labor-Employer Cooperative, a collaborative trust that represents the interests of Local 825 Operating Engineers and focuses on promoting economic development and job creation in our region and the entire State of New Jersey.

Burlington County has some of the most competitive county elections in the state. Gibbs won in 2014 by just over 1,000 votes.
