Now serving his second term in office, Camden County Freeholder Bill Moen was first elected in November 2015 as one of the youngest freeholders in the State of New Jersey. Since his election, he has dedicated his time to modernizing county government and tackling issues of importance to the community, such as student loan relief. A strong advocate for Camden County veterans, Bill has worked to expand care to our veterans while finding innovative ways to honor their service to our country, including:
- Revamping the Camden County Veterans Cemetery at Harleigh and installing digital grave locator kiosks to make it easier for families to find and learn about their loved ones
- Establishing a partnership with the national Library of Congress to make Camden County one of only two American counties to preserve the stories and memory of local veterans for generations to come
- Implementing the Camden County Purple Heart Parking Space program
- Creating the Camden County Gold Star Parent ID Card program
Bill serves as the Southern New Jersey Director for United States Senator Cory Booker, providing outreach to the state’s southern counties and managing the Senator’s office in Camden City. He previously served as a legislative aide in New Jersey’s Fifth Legislative District, where he helped draft state policy, including New Jersey’s first bill to bring social-impact bonds to the state. He led the statewide effort to pass legislation requiring social media education as part of the public school curriculum, to caution students on the risks and permanence of social media activity.
A fifth generation Irish-American and lifelong resident of Camden County – who was raised in Runnemede – Bill understands the importance of service to the community. The grandson of two World War II veterans and the son of a Vietnam veteran, Moen is a member of the Runnemede VFW Post #3324 Auxiliary, an organization of relatives of veterans of war. He has spent years volunteering as a little league baseball coach with the North Camden Little League, and serves as a board member of the Rowan University Alumni Association.
For his service to the community, Bill was awarded the 2014 Humanitarian of the Year Award by the Volunteer Center of South Jersey, recognized as one of the South Jersey Biz Magazine’s 2016 “20 Under 40” in 2016, and honored as one of the SNJ Business People Magazine’s “40 Under 40” in 2018.
A first generation college graduate, Moen earned a Master of Public Administration (MPA) from the University of Pennsylvania’s Fels School of Government and a bachelors degree in Political Science from Rowan University.
Today, Moen resides in the City of Camden, where generations of his family were born and raised.
