Cape May County Human Resource Director, Jeffrey R. Lindsay, Esq., was awarded a 2016 National Association of Counties (NAC0) Award for his work in managing the county’s employee medical benefit programs.

Since joining Cape May County government as the Human Resource Director in late 2013, Lindsay has been responsible for personnel matters and has worked to improve training, safety and health programs for county employees.
