East Brunswick Democrats: Cohen for Mayor, Spadafino and Stanley for Council

EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - The East Brunswick Democratic Committee has selected Dr. Brad Cohen to run for Mayor and Dr. Michael Spadafino and Sterley Stanley to run for Township Council this November.

"I am extremely excited to be working with a great team of candidates. We plan to provide the leadership needed to restore the pride and vitality of a truly wonderful town. I believe that this election represents a great opportunity for change. With the right leadership, our best days lie ahead," said Cohen today.

Brad Cohen is a local OB/GYN who currently serves on the Township’s Board of Education, and spent the past 2 years as its President.  The East Brunswick School District ranks among the best in the state.  Dr. Cohen, who also holds an MBA from Rutgers, will work hard to improve the Route 18 corridor and address the issues about which East Brunswick residents are concerned.

Councilman Michael Spadafino has been on the Council for the past 2 years.   He is a local chiropractor who has served East Brunswick’s families for decades, and prior to that, was a teacher at the high school.  Dr. Spadafino will continue to listen to the residents and address their concerns before the Council.  This past Monday, Spadafino was part of the unanimous vote to deny a license to Just Pups, a local pet store closed due to numerous violations.

Sterley Stanley has been working in the financial industry for the past seven years and is currently the President of the Board of Fox Meadow Condominium Association.  He is a director of the New Jersey State Democratic South Asian American Caucus in Middlesex County and has volunteered countless hours with his Church’s programs to reach the underprivileged. 

This highly-regarded Democratic team looks forward to bringing positive change to our community which is vital to the growth and future of East Brunswick.  “We cannot be more proud of the talented and experienced slate of candidates that the Democrats have put forward this year,” said East Brunswick Democratic Chairman David Lonski.  “From revitalizing the Route 18 corridor, to restoring and improving the services for which so many families originally moved to East Brunswick, our team will work tirelessly to revitalize our town and make it a place that we can all be proud to call home.”
