County clerk named VP of Constitutional Officers Association

Middlesex County Clerk Elaine M. Flynn has been sworn in as the vice president of the Constitutional Officers Association of New Jersey (COANJ).

The COANJ includes all registers, surrogates, sheriffs and county clerks in the state. The officials work together to promote the best practices in each county office and also submit and advocate legislation pertaining to the conduct, statutory requirements and duties relating to these offices.

“I am honored to have been nominated for this position and given this opportunity,” Flynn said. “The COANJ is an organization that I greatly admire and I have enjoyed my time serving with them.

Flynn previously held the position of COANJ secretary and will remain the vice president for the next year.

“Elaine Flynn has served as Middlesex County’s county clerk for 19 years and the entire Board of Chosen Freeholders knows she will continue to serve COANJ with the same excellence she has brought to our County,” said Middlesex County Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios. “I wish her the best of luck in continuing the improvement of services to the public.”

Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli (R-16) administered Flynn’s oath of office on Oct. 1 at COANJ’s annual conference.
