Bergen raises $25k for Assembly

Denville councilman gets $500 from Frelinghuysen

By David Wildstein, January 30 2019 9:34 pm

Brian Bergen has reported raising $25,145 for his bid for the Republican nomination for State Assembly in the 25th district.  That includes an $11,883 loan Bergen made to his own campaign.

The Denville councilman has spent $13,443 and has $11,187 in his campaign account, according to reports filed with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission.

Bergen reported a $500 contribution from Frelinghuysen for Congress, the campaign account of former Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-Harding).  Frelinghuysen held the 25th district Assembly seat from 1984 to 1995.

A West Point graduate and Army helicopter pilot, Bergen is seeking the open seat of Michael Patrick Carroll (R-Morris Township), who is leaving the Assembly after 24 years to run for Morris County Surrogate.

Incumbent Anthony M. Bucco (R-Boonton), who narrowly won re-election two years ago, is seeking his sixth term in the Assembly.

The report reflects total funds raised and spent this cycle, through December 31, 2018.

  1. Nice headline about Bergen raising $25k, but when you subtract his spending and his loan, he actually has a debt of $181 for his net campaign value. That’s pretty weak. It’s no wonder others are jumping in the race.

    1. Brian, a West Point grad, is the Republican Mikie Sherrill he will make a great assemblyman. He has my vote, we need fresh blood in Trenton.
