Monmouth County Democrats have elected David Brown of Long Branch to complete the term of former Chairman Vin Gopal who resigned earlier this month in order to run for State Senate in the 11th legislative district.

Brown, a member of the Monmouth County Tax Board, is employed by the Borough of Roselle (Union County) where he is the Borough Administrator/Acting DPW Supervisor and the Treasurer of the Public Schools, according to his LinkedIn profile.

He is Vice Chairman of the The Greater Long Branch Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Guild, 1st Vice President of the Greater Long Branch NAACP and Vice Chairman of the Second Baptist Church.

Lorna Phillipson of Spring Lake Heights, Congressman Chris Smith’s Democrat opponent in 2016, also sought the position.

    Damn, this guy has more public jobs than Flippy did!

    Not really…Treasurer Of School Monies is a position (in some cases eliminated by Districts) that provides a small yearly stipend . I have seen it pay as low as 2k and up to about 7k. (probably a little higher somewhere for a large district)

    Nothing unusual either for a Town BA to have other responsibilities in the same Town especially at the DPW as Acting Superintendent. Not exactly the same thing like having a job in another town.

    is how well- regarded in his party he is, and how much their power-brokers will dump into our county and legislative district races this year. The condition our state party is in does not give me a warm, fuzzy, or confident feeling!
