Board of Commissioners

An Important Message from the Commissioners

The Camden County Commissioners are the governing body for Camden County.  Each commissioner serves a four-year term. Terms are staggered so that three Commissioners are elected in one even-numbered year and the remaining two Commissioners are elected in the following even-numbered year.

Three of the County Commissioners are nominated by township and two are nominated at-large.  All five commissioner seats are subject to a countywide vote.

The chairman of the County Commissioners is selected each December.  By tradition, a Chairman serves two consecutive one-year terms. This gives the Commissioners and the county government an added measure of stability.

The County Commissioners employ a County Manager and staff who carry out the day-to-day functions of the County.
