EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Councilman Michael Hughes (R) announced today that he will not seek a third term on the East Brunswick Township Council. Hughes served from 2011-present on the East Brunswick Township Council, serving as Council President four times, in 2012 and 2015-2018. Hughes also was a member of the East Brunswick Board of Education from 2007-2010. He has never lost an election.

"Holding office in a democracy is the highest honor an individual can achieve. I am humbled each day that residents have put their trust in me to serve as their advocate on the Township Council. With that said, it is time for me to do something new and give someone else the chance to make their voices heard on the governing body. I thank all of my supporters, as well as the colleagues I have served with. I remain no less committed to the township through the end of my term, expiring on December 31st. As the youngest member ever elected to the Township Council, I look forward to being the youngest former Councilmember." said Hughes.

With regard to Hughes' decision, Mayor Brad Cohen said, "He has been an excellent public servant who has been devoted to East Brunswick from a very young age.  Mike Hughes is mature beyond his years.  He has put in a lot of time and energy for someone so young.  I wish him the best in his future efforts."
