A freeholder is a county-level official in New Jersey, a position that dates back to the state’s first constitution in 1776. The Essex County Board of Chosen Freeholders includes five freeholders who represent specific groups of towns, called districts, and four freeholders-at-large. Freeholders are generally regarded as the point-people for constituent issues and also have oversight over the county budget and infrastructure, including the county parks system.
