As Chair of the Finance Committee, Michael DuPont’s leadership has enabled the Borough of Red Bank to maintain financial stability through tough times. The policies he advocated have resulted in a continued high level of municipal services, a sounder financial position for the borough, as well as a flat budget—meaning no municipal tax increase for 2015. Now Mike is turning his attention to the future of Red Bank and how to improve quality of life for all residents.
‘I am dedicated to make sure Red Bank is the best and hippest place in New Jersey,” states Mike. “That includes continuing to improve our infrastructure, making sure people are safe, and providing more access to the waterfront to residents.”
Mike has served the borough of Red Bank for over 20 years. For10 years he was a member of the Zoning Board and Boards of the RiverCenter and Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. In 2006 he was elected to the Borough Council where he has served as Finance Chair since 2005. Mike is a partner in the firm of McKenna, DuPont, Higgins, and Stone. He serves a wide range of clients from financial institutions to national corporations. His experience negotiating union contracts for municipal governments has been of great help to the borough of over the last few years.
