MORRISTOWN, NJ (Morris County) – Morris County Surrogate Heather Darling is proud to announce that she has released the first ever Morris County Surrogate’s Office Annual Report.

This Annual Report is being introduced as part of Surrogate Darling’s promise to inform the citizens of Morris County of the functions and performance of the Surrogate’s Office. The 2020 Annual Report outlines the work undertaken by the Morris County Surrogate’s Office, including significant modernization during very difficult times in 2020.

“I am proud to report the Morris County Surrogate’s Office stayed open throughout the shut-down. My team courageously came in everyday and worked diligently and we changed the way we do business in response to the pandemic with our new online platform,” Darling said.

In 2021 the Surrogate will focus efforts on continuous improvements in customer service by streamlining processes to serve Morris County with the highest level of customer service.
