WHEREAS, during the 2002 general election the following public question
was posted to the voters: Shall the County of Morris amend the present Open
Space and Farmland Preservation Trust Fund to include the purpose of
preservation and acquisition of historic properties, structures, facilities,
sites, areas, or objects in accordance with P.L. 1997, Chapter 24 and allocate

$22,630,070 to eligible recipients; and
WHEREAS, some of the most valued historical sites in the County of
Morris are those of religious institutions and, as such, have received
percent of the total funds awarded; and

32

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Chosen Freeholders of the


County of Morris in the State of New Jersey that the commitment to historic
preservation is reaffirmed, as is in the eligibility of religious
institutions.
-Director DeFillippo asked for comments from the Freeholder Board before
opening it up to the public.
Freeholder Lyon:
To bring everybody up to speed, on Monday I notified my colleagues and
I put out a statement to the press that I was withdrawing my before-mentioned
motion that I put forward at the last freeholder meeting. Since the last
freeholder meeting I have received a significant amount of feedback from all
different types of citizens including many attorneys and I spent a lot of time
considering all different opinions and reflecting on the feedback that I
received and Ive come to the conclusion that the constitutional provision
that concerns me I do believe is ambiguous and by that what I mean is that I
think it can be read to support the position I have taken but as people have
demonstrated for multiple different arguments there is an argument against
that which would suggest that this is a constitutional program and as Ive
reflected over the last couple of weeks one of the things I have concluded is
that as a freeholder and particularly myself as a non attorney this is not
necessarily the right body to answer those types of ambiguities. They are
done I think best with two other entities . . .either the judiciary -- In our
political system the judiciary resolves all these constitutional questions of
law or other questions of law ---or a constitutional amendment to clarify
point blank and so I obviously for practical reasons the constitutional
amendment is very difficult and Im not in the position of influence to
achieve that and so until they have a higher body of authority like the court
of law were to deem that this is an unconstitutional program I would withdraw
my motion and support the program in its current form.
Freeholder Scapicchio:
I will support this Resolution No. 36, reconfirming.
Freeholder Cabana:
Since Freeholder Lyon introduced or brought forth the call to introduce
this resolution, Ive opposed it from the beginning in though it was a vote of
4 to 2 to advance this resolution I believe firmly and have believed firmly
since this issue came up that it was never a religious issue but its a brick

78

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS JANUARY 28, 2015


and mortar issue. This is preserving the historic gems of Morris County. Our
churches play an integral part in the foundation of this country and the
fabric of this county and many of these historic churches we are fortunate to
have remaining with us today. I believe that the funding that is provided
through this grant program affords the opportunity to these congregations to
maintain and preserve. I am not a builder but I intend to suspect that this
is very expensive some of the stonework of the beautiful stained glass windows
and art that is contained in these historic structures and getting a historic
preservation designation in some regards while it protects the property and in
some regards it may hurt the property because of all of the increased
requirements that are needed and the studies and the like and all of the
special contracting issues that need to go into it makes it more expensive
for the congregation. I do believe we need to preserve our history. This
program is something that has done that and hopefully we can put this issue to
bed once and for all. I think the support thats been shown and received
hundreds of emails in all four corners of the county supporting this. . . Go
to the grocery store, people are concerned that this is an issue. Its an
attack on our open space trust preservation funds and I have assured them that
I will not support any opposition or destruction of our historic preservation
or open space funding.
Freeholder Cesaro:
I support the resolution as is.
Freeholder Krickus:
I appreciate Freeholder Lyons logic and comments tonight. He has
always been very straight forward on this. Also, I mentioned Freeholder
Cesaro in a discussion he had not voted for these projects due to adoption of
entanglement -- so he had also not voted for it. I would point out that there
were two projects last year; St. Peters Episcopal Church on August 3rd for the
project and Assumption Church where we had Freeholder DeFillippo absent and
two votes against it and there were only 3 votes for the project. This is not
a game. Were here to provide you with our best judgment and so I supported
the motion as I did the projects last year.
Freeholder Mastrangelo:
I support the resolution and Ive always supported this historic
preservation trust. If you recall, back on June 25th in Pequannock we were
voting on a number of projects some being the churches. I felt as Freeholder
Cabana who eloquently said this is brick and mortar and this is about the
restoration of those church buildings as much as it is the restoration about
the non-religious buildings as well and thats the purpose of the program. I
felt at the time and still feel that by funding some buildings and not funding
churches we could potentially open up the County to litigation from churches
so just from that perspective alone I thought it was prudent that I would
continue to support this program as that being one of the issues. Also, from
a constitutional perspective, I did see entanglement. The U.S. Constitution
has upheld similar programs around historic preservation and had deemed them
not to be entangled although and the counselor to my right has said that the
State of New Jersey Constitution has not been challenged yet but for all the
reasons that I stated back in Pequannock on June 25th and for the reasons I
stated here tonight I will continually support this program unless the law
tells me otherwise. With that, thank you for the moment to speak.
Freeholder Cesaro asked the Director to speak.
Freeholder Cesaro:
I just want to make a couple of extra comments here. I want to clear
up the mis-characterization of my voting record. I have always abstained on
these issues, obviously putting on my attorney cap because I wanted to make
sure there was no entanglement issue. That was one of my issues. .. .the
doctrine of entanglement. One reason I abstained the only reason I
abstained - was that a lot of hard work had been put into basically getting
ready to fund these issues and I thought it was unfair to the planning
preservation department to do a blanket no.
That was the reason for my
abstention basically. Also, like Hank Lyon and talking to a lot of people
my pastor in particular, not being able to leave church on Sunday for 2 hours
after mass had ended talking to people. It is a historical issue. There is
no I found based on speaking with my pastor and other people. The doctrine of

79

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS JANUARY 28, 2015


entanglement is something I believe doesnt apply and I would continue to
support historic preservation of churches. I just want to make sure that
Freeholder Krickus made a good point about games. This is serious taxpayer
forum. Its not a forum for springboard for campaigning and mudslinging.
This is serious taxpayers business.
We are trusted with $317 million budget
so I think we all have our own reasons philosophically for what we think is in
the best interest of the taxpayers and I think its in the best interest to
vote and support historic preservation but never ever did I vote no for
these projects.
Director DeFillippo said, This subject we do take seriously. We have
discussed this on and off last year. There have been members of the public
who have come to us and questioned us and rightfully so. We deserve to hear
from the public and from various opinions. We actually considered putting
this into a subcommittee the last couple of months of the year and as some of
you know we have been pretty busy on the Freeholder Board the last couple of
months with a few issues going around us. In any event we intended to have a
subcommittee meeting, it didnt go forward. The meeting got cancelled. This
came up last week and we wanted to put it in subcommittee and we were voted 42 that it would be discussed tonight. I am delighted that Freeholder Lyon has
chosen to pull his resolution. I never supported it. I believe that the
information that was presented back in 2003 and the years prior to that to
prepare for this resolution was well documented, well thought out and our
staff put together all of this information going back 15 years of research and
comments and law information. Our own attorney Mr. OMullan shared with us
his feelings about the opinion. Despite that, we didnt go into subcommittee,
we were going to discuss it tonight and I really felt at this point it was
important to present and Im going to give credit to where its due.
Freeholder Cabana has suggested this resolution. And again we had the support
of everybody tonight that we are reaffirming that our commitment to historic
preservation and the eligibility of religious institutions. We reaffirm that
tonight and I pledge to put this issue to bed so it doesnt come up again at
least not in my time. And in the words of Freeholder Cabana, I will preserve
our Open Space Trust Fund. I firmly believe that Morris County is the
beautiful county it is because of our Open Space Trust Fund. I trust the
process, I trust the volunteers we put in that process to be responsible. I
have participated in committees as so have many of my peers here that we know
the process for our committees work; it is well vetted. A lot of questions
are asked and this particular process does not happen overnight about a years
worth of work. I really did want to put this to rest.
The floor was then opened to the public for comment on any subject.
PUBLIC PORTION
Reverend Janet Broderick, Morristown resident stated that without the
help of this money the church would not be able to keep their building intact
and safe. On behalf of 37 faiths that make up the clergy council, she thanked
the Board.
Cynthia Black, Reverend of the Church of the Redeemer, Morristown, has
benefitted greatly from the historic preservation grants. The church is the
proud home of the community soup kitchen, 12 step groups, and housing for the
homeless, in addition to cultural events and emergency assistance at times
such as Hurricane Sandy. She thanked the Board for their support.
Bob Fredericks, 16 Butterworth Drive and Morristown Historical Society,
thanked the Freeholders for their generous support. The buildings are listed
in our registry and are important in the history of Morris County. Without
the support, these buildings would deteriorate. He presented 2,292 petitions.
Barbara Eames, Hanover resident, quoted Article 1 of the New Jersey
State Constitution, Paragraph 3, on religious freedom where persons should not
be obliged to pay taxes for repair of churches. She felt the question before
them tonight was about religious protections and the right to not be taxed.
She felt the county policy is in violation of the religious rights of the
citizens.
Paul Albanese, Morris Township resident, said the Freeholders took an
oath to protect the constitution. Tonight is our opportunity to do just that.
We discussed this issue in the past. It should not be an emotional issue. On
the surface this appears to be a matter of legal interpretation. His question

80

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS JANUARY 28, 2015


is that since there seems to be more confusion or interpretation or
misinterpretation of this issue, he thinks the Board should investigate this
further so it is clear whether it is or not. He believes that Resolution No.
36 should not be passed tonight.
Pastor Williams, Mt. Bethel Church in Morristown and past president of
Morris County counsel, appreciates the constitution of being a better country
and nation and understands that politics change. He would like to see people
in positions that represent the heart.
Freeholder Lyon said the first amendment is broadly written. The State
Constitution that Ms. Eames recited was very specific. The conclusion is that
we have this somewhat grey language.
Freeholder Krickus said he appreciates the CCM comments and the DeCroce
family comments. He said he is a representative and he is always paying
taxpayer money and is always cognizant of that.
Nelson Helu, Kinnelon resident, said there was a time he could care less
about religion. Three years ago he became a devout Catholic. He would like
as much money from the government as possible. Approving this resolution
should be in the best interest for all.
Sister Mary Jean of Episcopal Church in Mendham Township, spoke about
Daytop and how it is non-sectarian. They open their doors no matter if they
have any religion or not. She thanked the Board for helping to keep their
doors open.
Christine Dwyer, Morris Township resident, said this issue is not a
United States Constitution First Amendment. It is a New Jersey State
Constitution issue. She feels he Constitution provides additional layers of
protection to the citizens above the U. S. Constitution.
Bill Eames, Whippany resident, said that the States have the ability to
add a higher layer of protection of the individual rights of its citizens than
the U. S. Constitution.
Paul Brangs, Randolph Township resident, said no one should be obliged
to pay for taxes of the church and feels it is against the constitution.
Mr.
Brangs feels the County should not go forward with funding.
Albert of Basking Ridge, spoke on behalf of his mother in Chatham
Township. He believe this sets a dangerous precedent to go forward with
adopting Resolution 36.
Peter Arney, Rockaway Township resident and of the Church of the
Redeemer in Morristown, said he will leave the decision to the courts. He
appreciate all the generous support that we have provided to them. They have
been recipients of the historic grants. The church has produced 10,000 meals
for those who otherwise go hungry in the community.
Janet Foster, Madison resident, thanked the Board for supporting the
funding for historic preservation.
Reverend Spacey, Presbyterian Church, feels this matter has nothing to
do with religion.
John Garrison, Mountain Lakes resident, thanked Freeholder Lyon for
withdrawing his previous draft resolution. He feels that we should preserve
all history and not just secular history.
He feels that Counsel O'Mullan has
done a terrific job and thanked the Freeholders for passing Resolution No. 36.
Larry Fast, resident of Long Hill Township and as a historian, supports
Resolution 36.
Mary Anna Holden, resident of Madison said that separation of church and
state is not new to historic preservation and supports Resolution No. 36.
Eileen Stokes, Washington Township resident, said it has been stressed
that preservation advocates for the building. She feels it is no different
than for churches.

81

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS JANUARY 28, 2015


Betsy Holdsworth, Harding Township resident, said she is very happy we
have turned this into a positive from a negative. The tourism that our
historic structures bring in to the County is to our advantage. She also
commended the Board for the donation to the Alex DeCroce Media Center.
Ms.
Holdsworth read the following letter addressed to the Freeholder Board:
I am distressed to learn that St. Peters and The New Vernon
Presbyterian Church might lose their Historic Status in the eyes of Morris
County. The First Presbyterian Church of New Vernon was founded in 1833, and
it is a very old wooden structure. St. Peters is a well-known stone landmark
in Morristown, the County Seat of Morris and was designed by one of the best
known architectural firms of the era, McKim, Mead and White more than 100
years ago. The historic preservation marker that Morris County asked me to
make arrangements to put on our property a few years ago attests to the
importance that earlier historians conveyed upon our structure. Churches are
no longer places of wealth, and as I explained to the Morris County Heritage
Commission years ago, the structural problems we face would be less
expensively dealt with by tearing the building down and starting over.
However, the membership believes we are the stewards of history and its
importance to Morris County. We have asked Morris County to invest in
preservation with us. We cannot afford to do this alone. Our congregation is
growing, but the affluence of years ago is no longer the case. Your
generosity has been most appreciated. We think of you as our partner. We
compete with others who are also worthy of the limited funds that Morris
County sets aside for preservation and we are happy to do so.
Why are you considering removing historic churches from the list of
possible grantees? This makes no sense. The State Historic Trust provides
grants to Historic Houses of Worship. You are not supporting the worship; you
are supporting the preservation of the building and the community activities
that are important to all.
Not only is St. Peters an imposing structure, it welcomes the entire
Morris County Community as a resource and venue. Students of all faiths come
to study the stain glass windows and gothic architecture. I remember our
daughters class trip. . .and they walked from school. . .no bus necessary for
many children. Parishioners come from all across the county and nonparishioners often show up for our adult education programs on Sunday morning.
We have Episcopal services, and we have evangelical services in Spanish. Our
Youth Group and our childrens choir welcome all faiths. The music education
offered to all children is extraordinary. We have daycare I conjunction with
the YMCA, an after school tutoring program, and a bilingual summer program.
We are fortunate to have a retired school principal, a renowned organist and a
Spanish speaking assistant on our staff. We welcome community choruses who
give concerts and AA meetings. The men of the Market Street Mission can walk
here, and the meetings are some of the largest in the area. No other place is
large enough. We participate in First Night Morris and outdoor movies in the
summertime. During the aftermath of Storm Sandy were the community warming
station and served over four thousand meals. What if our building did not
meet current codes? We get grants from other sources for some of our
programs, but Morris County Historic Preservation funds are crucial to the
upkeep of our campus. Our church is not insular. We are a part of the larger
community and our historic structure is important to all constituencies.
St. Peters is part of the fabric of Morris County history. Peg brings
guests most weekends in the good weather to see our graveyard, portrait of an
early Rector by Thomas Nast and our gorgeous gothic building and stained
glass. Tourism is very important to the economic fiber of our community.
When I was on the New Jersey Historical Commission, a study was done as to the
economic impact of tourism in the state. People who come to visit our history
eat in restaurants, go to the movies or Community Theater and shop I our
stores as well as fill the hotel rooms where the community gets a share of the
tax revenue. Tourism is the second largest industry in the state behind
pharmaceuticals, and it is not the people that go to the shore or Atlantic
City that really spend money (they sit on the beach or gamble). History
Tourism is an economic force. This mornings email from Morristown National
Historical Park included the following:
Morristown National Historical Park is a strong economic engine for the
surrounding area. In 2013, more than 300,000 park visitors contributed
$16
million in communities near the park. That spending supporting 197 jobs in
the local area.

82

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS JANUARY 28, 2015


Historic churches throughout the county including St. Peters play an
important role in the social and economic engine of Morris County. Your
partnership with Historic preservation is very important to the success of the
mission. I hope you will stop by S. Peters before this vote. Email me and I
would be happy to join you there and show you what an integral part of the
community this building is and why historic preservation funds are so
important to this and all historic churches in Morris County.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Kurt Dinkelmeyer, Towaco resident, felt that the Board has an obligation
to support the Constitution and feels that the County cannot use tax payer
monies to build or repair churches. He feels that the use of historic
preservation money is not for the interior of churches and feels that the
rules are inconsistent.
Dave Bogart, Rockaway resident, said he loves the quality of life in
Morris County and feels that the Board has worked together for the community.
He feels the Board should move ahead with the resolution.
Kevin Sullivan, Mayor of Chatham Township, said he is encouraged by the
number of people who are paying attention to the constitution. He thinks
former Mayor Holden did a terrific job in explaining the heritage points.
These buildings are designated as historical sites and that they do match the
criteria necessary to obtain the funding.
Paul Albanese, Morris Township resident, feels this issue could be a
separation of church and state. The ACLU could fight us on this that will
cost a lot of money in the future.
Nicolas Platt, Mayor of Harding Township, said he is proud of the
Freeholder Board and feels the 39 mayors would support what is being done. It
is good for the community. He does not feel there are any legal issues here.
He encouraged the Board to listen to their hearts and remember why the
taxpayers elected them to make the right decisions tonight.
Louis Stone, Morris Township resident, supports Resolution No. 36.
Kurt Dinkelmeyer, Towaco resident, mentioned an article that Star Ledger
published about the pros and cons of this issue. He claims that the poll was
2-1 against the funding of churches. Mr. Dinkelmeyer does not believe that
all mayors would support this funding.
Wayne Laraway, Long Valley resident spoke about the referendum,
paragraph 3, last 3 lines. He feels it is misleading. Mr. Laraway feels
there has been no time for the public to comment. The public needs to be clear
of the chronology.
Mr. Laraway said it should be made clear to the public. There was going
to be a committee to explore this issue and bring back a recommendation to the
Board. This is a very important issue and it would be worthwhile to have this
committee. I don't think this should be rushed through. Please delay to have
further public input on this subject.
Freeholder Mastrangelo said as Director last year, he met with the
committee two months ago with Planning and Public Works Director Deena Leary,
Administrator Bonanni and Assistant Administrator Burd and they discussed many
issues that were discussed tonight.
Wayne Laraway said the bottom line is the constitution of NJ. It does
need further study. It is simple and can't be clearer. I don't want to fund
anybody else's church. He said he plans to send the Board a letter.
Nelson Helu, Kinnelon resident, said we have heard that we have an oath
of office. He feels that is violated if money is given to the churches.
Roland Lucid, resident of Morristown, works in Morristown said he
marvels at the diversity of historic structures in Morristown. He loves the
view of Morristown, and he feels it requires a lot of money to take care of
this property. He feels this issue has nothing to do with religion but
architecture and wisdom.

83

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS JANUARY 28, 2015


Joe Farrandino, Long Hill resident, felt the Board should speak to the
members of the churches and whether they need to worship in pristine
buildings.
Mike Carson, Montville resident, felt religious people had wealth at one
time to build the churches. The sad part is that the size of wealth cannot
maintain the churches without public help.
FREEHOLDER COMMENTS
Freeholder Krickus announced that the budget hearing is Wednesday,
February 4th, 6 p.m. in public meeting room.
Freeholder Mastrangelo thanked everyone for their participation. He
wanted to clarify one thing that when we take our oath of office under the
U.S. Constitution and NJ State.. under the U.S. Constitution, per the
counselor, have been upheld under the issue we discussed tonight. We are
guided by both constitutions and I believe we are upholding this.
Comments by Director DeFillippo:
She thanked everyone to hear so many comments on both sides of the isle
and the laughter that came with it. This is a very serious subject. Why the
Board did not go into the subcommittee that was decided two weeks ago. The
process that took place over the last two weeks has been enlightening and very
educational. A lot of this came from a book held up earlier from Mary Anna
Holden. We all take the constitution very seriously and this was not an easy
decision, but the decision was made. This resolution came about when we
learned the resolution from two weeks ago was being pulled. Talked to the
Freeholder Board who wanted to hold up the historic preservation of the
churches. The Freeholder Board has to make a decision based on the best
information we have. She asked for a motion for Resolution No. 36 as a
separate motion from the other resolutions.
Freeholder Cabana made a motion to adopt Resolution No. 36 and this was
seconded by Director DeFillippo. The Clerk called and recorded the following
vote:
YES:
