Monmouth County Republican Chairman was appointed Acting Administrator of the Borough of Oceanport last week, replacing Phil Huhn, a former Neptune Township administrator, who had been holding the post since June when Kimberly Jungfer resigned as Borough Administrator and Clerk to take the same job in neighboring Little Silver.
Mayor Michael J. Mahon confirmed Bennett’s temporary appointment and declined to comment further.
Bennett, who also serves as the borough’s attorney, said he was in conversations with the governing body to become a full time employee as a attorney and administrator in January.
“It would be a win-win for everybody,” Bennett said, noting that the borough would save money in legal fees if he held both posts. He said he is not seeking pension credits or health benefits in the proposed position.Art Gallagher | Filed under: John Bennett, Monmouth County, Monmouth GOP | Tags: Colts Neck, Dilworth Paxson, Farmingdale, John Bennett, Keansburg, Kimberly Jungfer, Little Silver, Meghan Bennett Clark, Monmouth GOP, Oceanport | 3 Comments »
