Jackson Zoning Board Member Judge Jim Hurley Resigns As Second Term Nears End

Jackson Zoning Board member Jim Hurley has stepped down following two terms on the township’s powerful board, citing personal reasons.

Hurley, a respected longtime judge and expert on zoning matters, made a name for himself on the Zoning Board as a tough and incisive questioner of applications and unwavering in his determination to give his stamp of approval until his concerns were adequately addressed.

“Judge Hurley’s decision to step down from the Jackson Township Zoning Board leaves us with big shoes to fill,” Councilman Mordechai Burnstein told Lakewood Alerts. “I wish Judge Hurley and his family well, and thank him for his dedicated service to the Township of Jackson.”

Judge Hurley was born in 1940, graduating from the Stevens Institute of Technology in 1965 and the Seton Hall School of Law in 1975. He worked as a private attorney for two decades before being appointed a Superior Court Judge in 1996.

The Jackson Township Council will likely select Judge Hurley’s replacement on the Zoning Board at their end of June meeting.
