BRMC Announces 2020 Council Candidates!

The Bernardsville Republican Municipal Committee (BRMC) met to screen potential candidates for expiring Borough Council seats. The BRMC endorsed two outstanding candidates whose names have been forwarded to the Somerset County Republican Organization for inclusion on the ballot in the upcoming June 2 nd Primary election.

The BRMC unanimously endorsed Diane Greenfield and Patrick Bosworth for Bernardsville Borough Council in 2020.

Diane Greenfield held a Borough Council seat from December 2018 through December 2019. During that time, she served on the Personnel Committee and as the Council liaison to the Board of Health, HPAC, Shared Court Advisory and Cultural Arts Advisory Committees.

Ms. Greenfield told the BRMC that “while serving on the Borough Council my priorities included the importance of seriously examining shared municipal services with neighboring towns to reduce spending. I also believe the development of new and improvement of existing passive and active recreational facilities would enhance our Borough for current residents and help make Bernardsville more attractive to potential home buyers.

Diane Greenfield was elected to the Bernardsville Republican Municipal Committee in June 2016 representing District 5 and is currently serving as its Secretary.

Patrick Bosworth is a long-time resident of Bernardsville with children who all attend the Bernardsville Public Schools.

BRMC Chairman, Karen Gardner said that “both Diane and Pat have the knowledge and expertise working with Bernardsville’s Borough Council and committees that will be important in getting our municipal spending under control. They will make the hard decisions necessary to ensure that our Borough is financially strong and kept an attractive place to live and work. The candidates’ priorities are consistent with what our Borough needs going forward in this challenging time.”

The Bernardsville Republican Municipal Committee is comprised of male and female elected representatives from each of Bernardsville’s seven election districts.
