Mayor Brad Cohen was elected to the office in November 2016. The Mayor began his public career in 2010 when he was elected to the East Brunswick Board of Education. Working with a dedicated group of Board members, he helped navigate the schools through difficult economic times in the wake of the Recession and the draconian cuts in State Aid. He was named Board President in 2014 and helped select the new Superintendent of Schools. Balancing fiscal responsibilities with massive needs in information technology, strategic planning, and infrastructure, the future Mayor chose to use his skills to improve the quality of life for all the residents of East Brunswick.  The Mayor is a 27 year resident of East Brunswick. He is a practicing gynecologist and is part of St. Peter’s Physician Associates with an office in East Brunswick. He lives with his wife, Penny, a dermatologist in Somerset. He has two children, Rachel and Daniel who are both graduates of the East Brunswick Public School System (2006 and 2008).
