The College Democrats of New Jersey have elected David McMillan, a junior at The College of New Jersey, as their new president.

Emily McGrath is the new vice president.

McMillan succeeds Meagan Warner, whois now the National Council Secretary for the College Democrats of America and Board of Education member for South Hunterdon Regional School District. 

Before Warner, the post was held by Megan Coyne, who has won national acclaim as one of the aides to Gov. Phil Murphy behind the @NJGov Twitter account.

McMillan, an intern for Trenton Mayor Reed Gusciora, is a Democratic county committeeman in Bedminster. 

“Campaigns will rely on strong digital organizing in 2020. We plan on working with county leaders to ensure that voters are contacted, minds are changed, and ballots are cast,” asserted McMillan.

McGrath, a Rowan University student, worked on the re-election campaigns of Assemblyman Vince Mazzeo (D-Northfield) and John Armato (D-Buena), serves as a county committeewoman in Atlantic County, and currently serves as an intern in the New Jersey Senate Majority Office

“I’m proud of everything this e-board has done to help Democrats in New Jersey,” said Nick Brago, the former Executive Director of CDNJ and 1L student at Rutgers Law School.  “I have no doubt that the new e-board will continue to grow CDNJ and further the voices of college Democrats.”
