Andrew LaBruno, 37, a Democrat and Councilman of Dumont, New Jersey. Andrew has received the Democratic nomination for the 2019 Dumont Mayoral Election. He was nominated with Lisa Rossillo, seeking re-election for Council, and Conor Gorman, who is running for his first term for Council.
Andrew is a Jersey City Police Detective with over 18 years of law enforcement experience. In 2009, he moved to Dumont with his wife, Meghan. They are now proud parents of Jack (9) and Ava (4). Over the past several years Andrew has been involved in coaching Dumont youth sports, Dumont Little League Baseball and Dumont Recreation Flag Football.
In 2016, Andrew founded the Dumont Community Group, a 501c3 non-profit organization. The organization's purpose is to bring a positive change to Dumont by hosting and producing community events and activities. The Dumont Community Group successfully revived Movies in the Park events and the Dumont 5K in just a few months. This year the organization presented their first Women's Networking Event and will be hosted Dumont's first town-wide garage sale.
As Councilman, LaBruno chairs a committee overseeing the construction of the new borough hall complex. He was also instrumental in the first round of police promotions since 2013. In 2019, LaBruno spearheaded the establishment of Dumont’s Economic Development Committee, fulfilling a major promise made in his council campaign platform.
