DENVILLE, NJ -- In a unanimous vote, the Denville Town Council selected Christopher Golinski to fill the Ward 2 council seat.left vacant by former Councilman Brian Bergen, who stepped down from the position after winning his bid for the New Jersey Assembly last November. Golinski previously served two four-year terms on the township council from 2009 to 2017. He took the oath of office on Feb. 4 during the council's meeting.

“I really enjoyed my previous eight years on the council, getting to meet and help so many wonderful people,” said Golinski. “After a two-year break I really missed it and am ready to come back refreshed and energized.”

Golinski has been a township resident of the Indian Lake section for the last 30 years. In those three decades, he and his family have been active in their community, including Eagle Scouts and the Gold Award Girl Scouts, food chair for the St. Francis Fall Festival, Rockaway River clean-ups and monthly senior socials with the Denville Recreation Committee.
