FREEHOLD, NJ – Christine Giordano Hanlon was sworn-in as the Acting County Clerk this morning by Superior Court Judge Joseph W. Oxley.
“It is an honor to be sworn in as the Acting County Clerk,” said Hanlon. “Claire has set an excellent example for me to follow and I promise to continue her work on behalf of and for Monmouth County residents.”

Monmouth County Clerk M. Claire French, whose retirement is effective later today, held the bible as Hanlon was sworn in.

“I am confident that Christine is going to be a great County Clerk and I wish her the best of luck,” said French. “It feels like only yesterday that I was being sworn in as County Clerk. I truly enjoyed my job as Clerk and I will miss all of the wonderful people I have had a privilege to work with over the years.”

Prior to being sworn in as Acting County Clerk, Hanlon, of Ocean Township, was formerly an attorney at Archer & Greiner’s Middletown office.  She served as Deputy Borough Attorney in Tinton Falls, Municipal Prosecutor in Atlantic Highlands and as a Commissioner of the Monmouth County Board of Elections.

The County Clerk’s office oversees the recording and filing of property deeds and other official documents, voter registration and election certification, passport processing and the Monmouth County archives.
