Reflections on Lillian Burry by the person who knows her best
By Capt. Donald L. Burry, USCG (Retired)
Many of you now know that Lillian Burry and I have been married for more than 50 years. Through the disagreements and pleasant happenings I have learned much about her dedication and commitment to our County. If I may, I would like to express my observations with respect to Lillian’s political and community activities. This will take a while and I hope you might have time for my thoughts.
Beginning back in the days of our Matawan Borough life, Lillian started her career in political and social community commitment. Preserving the 80+ acres around Matawan creek; saving the historical Borrowes Mansion; obtaining Federal funds to purchase and convert the old Central Jersey Bank building into an Improved Borough Hall; spearheading the efforts to stop dumping and storing waste oil in Burnt Fly Bog and having it declared a Federal contaminated site; establishing a chapter of League of Women voters; elected to the Matawan Borough Council; Appointed to the Monmouth County Planning Board; Appointed to the Monmouth County Library Commission; and other less well known activities were her passions. I was a sales rep for the Rohm and Haas Company. My travels afforded her time, in my absence, to raise our daughter and to be politically and community involved. This was the beginning of Lillian’s political career. Additionally Lillian became involved in Real Estate sales. Colts Neck Realty became a new passion.admin | Filed under: 2014 Elections, Lillian Burry, Monmouth County, Monmouth County Board of Freeholders | Tags: 2014 Elections, Don Burry, Freeholder Director Lillian Burry, Lillan Burry, Monmouth County | 2 Comments »
