Tim Hogan for Mayor Tim J Hogan
Mayoral candidate, healthcare system president, father
My name is Tim Hogan and I am a 22 year resident of Red Bank. Since moving here in 2001, I have worked at Hackensack Meridian Health in various leadership positions, including my current role as President of Riverview Medical Center.

From the outset, I have been very active in our community and I have volunteered in many capacities, including chairing the 2011 KABOOM fireworks event. I continue to serve as a member of several community and organizational boards, and have served as the board chairperson at both the Community YMCA and the Monmouth Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

Over the years, I have learned the value of being an effective servant leader and the importance of working together to achieve common goals. I’d like to be part of that effort in Red Bank in the future as your Mayor.

I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from St. Bonaventure University and a Master’s Degree in Healthcare Administration from The Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri.

Sean Murphy Sean Murphy
Zoning board member, longtime RB resident and community supporter
My name is Sean Murphy, and I am asking for your support in my first bid for Red Bank Borough Council. If elected I will be a responsive member of the Red Bank Borough Council.

I was born and raised in Red Bank. I grew up on Hudson Avenue and lived there from 1964 to 1996. In 1996 I married my wife, Nancy Hintelmann Murphy and moved to Throckmorton Avenue where we raised our four children, Sean, Matthew, Michael and Katherine. I attended Red Bank Public Schools and graduated from Red Bank Regional High School (Class of 1982).

After graduating from high school, I began my career in New York City as an elevator constructor. I was employed for over 20 years by Otis Elevator. I began running work for Schindler Elevator in 2003. I am currently the lead foreman for large project installations at Schindler Elevator. I am a proud member of the International Union of Elevator Constructors.

My love for Red Bank inspired me to volunteer in many capacities. In the early 80’s, I had the pleasure of serving on the Red Bank Fire Department. I later served as a baseball and soccer coach for Red Bank Recreation. Eventually, I served on the Parks and Recreation Committee, where I strived to create better programs for our children. For many years, I was a district leader for the Red Bank Democrats. In recent years I have served on the Red Bank Zoning Board.

I’d like to ask that you support me in my bid for Red Bank Council so that I can continue to serve the town I love and make Red Bank a better place for all.
