Tracy Zur is a former judge and prosecutor who has dedicated her professional life to keeping our communities safe and secure.
Formed the Bergen County Food Security Task Force in 2020 and continues to work every day to ensure food pantries have adequate and healthy supplies on their shelves to provide for our residents in need.
With four years of successful programs immersing young adults with unique abilities in internship experiences to gain portable job skills at Holy Name, Hackensack and New Bridge Medical Center (earning national recognition for employment rates) the pandemic required our program to shift, so Commissioner Zur ensured the continuation of the program by facilitating opportunities for interns at the Bergen County Administration buildings. For the 2020-2021 school year, the Project SEARCH Interns are gaining experience in the Sheriff's Office, Prosecutor's Office, Clerk's Office, Freeholder's Office, Mailroom, Security, and throughout the County Administration.
The Annual LGBTQ Youth Leadership Summit serves as a space for teens to share experiences and ideas for their GSA clubs and build relationships with other schools in Bergen County to understand that they are not alone and are supported within Bergen County.
Analyzed and charted the course for the restructuring and ultimate formation of New Bridge Medical Center, ensuring exceptional care for those most at risk in our community.
Advocated for shared services agreements with all 70 municipalities and realigned the County Police Department as a Division of the Sheriff's Department which has saved taxpayers over $20 million dollars, and will continue to save up to $200 million dollars.
Actively engaged in the formulation of the Parks Master Plan to ensure a strategic approach to enhance the use of open space and recreational opportunities throughout the county.
