Holmdel Township Committeeman Patrick Impreveduto is running for the Monmouth County Freeholder seat being vacated by Gary Rich.
In his letter to Monmouth GOP County Committee members, Impreveduto said,
“It is with great excitement that I announce my candidacy for Monmouth County Freeholder. Having served on the Holmdel Township Committee for the past 9 years, I have the experience and dedication necessary to now serve the Monmouth County community as a member of the Board of Chosen Freeholders.
Public service has been a cornerstone of my adult life. As an educator and academic innovator, I worked tirelessly to provide students with new opportunities for success. As a community volunteer, I have dedicated countless hours in our great county nurturing a more unified, cooperative environment. In addition, as an elected official, I have proven to be a passionate advocate, not only for the people of Holmdel, but for citizens across Monmouth County as well.”
Impreveduto, 63, is a retired high school principal. Since 2011, he has been the Associate Director of the Middle States Association of Colleges Schools Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS). He is responsible for the accreditation of approximately 500 public, private, charter and parochial schools.
Impreveduto and Freeholder Rich were classmates at St. Peter’s College in Jersey City (Class of ’75) where they were both trained as educators. The Monmouth County Republican leaders lost touch with each other after graduating and were reunited when Rich appeared before the Holmdel GOP County Committee in 2011 to campaign for Freeholder.
Married for 42 years, Pat and Judith have lived in Monmouth County for 33 years–10 in Colts Neck and the past 23 in Holmdel. They have two children and three grandchildren.
The freeholder candidate served on the Holmdel Board of Education from 2001 through 2007. He has been of member of the Township Committee since 2008 and served as mayor from 2011 through 2015.
