About Our Featured Speaker: Freeholder Charles Tomaro, Middlesex County
Middlesex County Freeholder Charles E. Tomaro chairs the County’s Infrastructure Management Committee. Freeholder Tomaro’s accomplishments reflect his history of dedication to the community and his ongoing goal to improve the quality of life for the residents of Middlesex County.
A long-time Middlesex County resident, Freeholder Tomaro attended both Middlesex County College and Rutgers University. He is a businessman as well as a public servant, working for Clayton Block and Concrete Company in the Keasbey section of Woodbridge, New Jersey.
Freeholder Tomaro’s experience in government dates back to his time as a Councilman of the Township of Edison (1996-2007 and 2010-2011), where he served as Council President (1999-2000, 2007 and 2010) and Council Vice President (1997-1998). As a member of the Council, he negotiated Edison’s purchase of 36 acres of farmland for open space, and the acquisition of the 11-acre Oakcrest Swim Club, including its pool, basketball and tennis courts and its ball fields. He worked with local residents to build a skatepark, so residents would have a safe place to skateboard; as a Freeholder he would go on to lead efforts to renovate this park. He also initiated Edison’s “Dig This” campaign, which encourages property owners to apply for state grants to remove old underground fuel tanks on residential properties.
Since he first became a Middlesex County Freeholder in 2011, Freeholder Tomaro has gone on to lead the Board of Chosen Freeholders’ effort to develop a comprehensive Sustainable Energy Master Plan to drive down energy costs, protect the environment and increase the quality of life of our citizens.
