Absecon Certified Municipal Court Administrator Merrilee Carlson has been named the city’s Employee of the Quarter/submitted Absecon Certified Municipal Court Administrator Merrilee Carlson has been named the city’s Employee of the Quarter/submitted

I hope that none of you have occasion to meet Merrilee Carlson in her official capacity. Not that Merrilee is a bad person. On the contrary, she is as pleasant and helpful as she could be. However, if you encounter her, it will probably be because Merrilee is Absecon’s Certified Municipal Court Administrator and you have business before that Court. Because of her professionalism, high work ethic and desire to serve the public, I have chosen Merrilee as Absecon’s employee of the third quarter. Her status as a judicial officer prevents her from accepting a stipend personally, so at her request, I will personally make a $100 contribution in her name to her favorite charity, the Atlantic County Humane Society.

Recently, I sat down with Merrilee to learn more about her and her duties. Merrilee lives in Northfield with her husband, Larry, who is retired from the Linwood Police Department and is now employed by Atlantic Electric, along with their children, Lacey and C.J.
