Prioritizing a “dedication to protecting our beautiful natural environment, planning a prosperous town center for future generations, and - as our community and our nation struggles with the global pandemic and social justice upheaval - ensuring our social fabric remains, fair, strong, and healthy.” this ticket supports the issues Our Revolution values.

With the motto BOROFORWARD, Johnson and Brook have reached out to constituents throughout the community to understand the challenges they face and the goals they hold for themselves and their families.

Donetta Johnson has lived in this town for 33 years and built a business here, and David Brook joined this community 17 years ago, and they know the issues facing this town. Their grassroots movement has hit a chord with Our Revolution Hillsborough, which is a youth-led movement created to challenge the power of the plutocrats and prioritize the needs of people and our planet.

We are building a national grassroots movement of local groups powerful enough to win progressive issue fights, elect progressive champions, transform the Democratic Party platform, and eradicate big money from politics. Our Revolution is an inclusive movement where folks from all walks of life are welcome, regardless of their gender, religion, skin color, or legal status.

When Our Revolution Hillsborough planned a rally for Black Lives Matter, Johnson and Brook were there to show their support. When Our Revolution Hillsborough rallied to support the workers at the U.S. Postal Service, Johnson and Brook were there. In our town’s first march to support the marginalized, they marched with us.

Their platform emphasizes finding common ground on key issues across Hillsborough to improve the quality of life for all, a message which Our Revolution Hillsborough believes in for our community.

Currently the Township Committee is made up of a majority Republican members with over half having been on the committee for over ten years. It’s time for a change, and that change is Johnson-Brook 2020.

“It is very important we support grassroots campaigns which challenge the status quo of politics in town and that is exactly what David Brook and Donnetta Johnson are set to accomplish,” said Didier Jimenez, ORH Chapter Leader. The Johnson-Brook Campaign has energized the youth in Hillsborough to participate in the upcoming elections against the entrenched GOP party controlling our town.

With their commitment to serving all and bringing fresh ideas and perspectives to the Township Committee along with a wealth of experiences, Donnetta Johnson and David Brook have given voters the opportunity to cast their ballots to move BOROFORWARD in 2020, and Our Revolution Hillsborough enthusiastically supports Johnson and Brook for Township Committee in 2020.
