Renée Robeson was sworn in as Hunterdon County Prosecutor at the Historic Courthouse in Flemington, N.J., on July 1.
The ceremony was presided over by Judge Thomas Miller, assignment judge for Vicinage 13, Somerset/Hunterdon/Warren counties.
“We are at a moment in America’s history when those of us entrusted with the administration of justice, at every level, must do more in every way to establish and maintain the trust of those we serve. This requires renewed diligence, transparency, and effort,” Robeson said following the oath of office.
“I understand that great trust comes with my office and I look forward to exerting every ounce of my energy to serving justice, for our state, for our county, and for the team I lead and the public I work to protect.”
A lifelong resident of Hunterdon County, Robeson said it was a dream come true to serve the community that her family calls home. Prior to becoming prosecutor, she served as an assistant prosecutor in Mercer County for over 17 years.
The ceremony was attended by many dignitaries including, District 22 state Sen. Nicholas P. Scutari, District 16 Sen. Christopher “Kip” Bateman, District 16 Assemblyman Roy Freiman, Hunterdon County Commissioners Director Susan Soloway and Deputy Director John Lanza and Mercer County Prosecutor, Angelo J. Onofri.
“The Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office has earned, through tireless work, a reputation for excellence in law enforcement. I look forward to working together with each member of this office and all the stakeholders of the community to continue to provide the excellent service that has been the hallmark of the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office,” the new county prosecutor said.
