RAHWAY — Officials managing the re-election campaign of President Barack Obama has designated Rahway Councilman David Brown as his campaign chief in Rahway.
Brown first won election as the Fourth Ward Councilman since 1996 and he has served in a variety of Democratic Party positions throughout the years playing a key role in the elections of President Bill Clinton and former Mayor Jim Kennedy, among others.
“Dave Brown is the sensible choice to lead President Obama’s re-election effort here because he is a dedicated and effective leader who understands how to motivate voters,” said city Democratic Party Chairman Samson Steinman. “I don’t think anyone can compare with Councilman Brown when it comes to organizing the community and challenging citizens to do their duty.”
Brown was a close ally of the late Congressman Donald Payne, with whom he worked on numerous campaign activities in addition to securing funds for the new Rahway Public Library.
“I expect to see massive efforts invested in voter registration, helping voters who want to cast ballots by mail and make sure the maximum number of voters turnout to vote on Election Day, Nov. 6.
Volunteers can sign up at the Rahway Democratic Party website located at www.rahwaydems.org and Brown said voters interested in getting involved can contact him by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 1-732-484-5485.
