Hank Lyon (born February 13, 1988) is an American Republican Party politician. Lyon joined the Morris County, New Jersey Board of Chosen Freeholders on March 9, 2012, and is serving a special one year term on the board. At 24, he is the youngest freeholder in the state.[1]

A resident of the Towaco section of Montville, Lyon majored in economics and physics at the College of the Holy Cross.[1]

Lyon was appointed to the seat that had been held by Margaret Nordstrom, after a court battle in which Nordstron sought to overturn Lyon's victory in the Republican Party primary claiming that he had violated campaign funding laws.[2] Lyon is freeholder liaison to the Department of Information Services, the Airport and Railroad Advisory Committees and the Heritage Commission. He is also a member of the Board of School Estimate for the County College of Morris and the Morris County School of Technology.[1]
