Alan Johnson

District 7 Committeeperson

My wife, Jen, and I moved to Metuchen in 2017, when we were expecting our first daughter. Since then, our family has grown with the addition of a second daughter in 2019 and boy/girl twins in 2021. I love this town, and I have tried to do my part to help and contribute to the community. I served on the Traffic and Transportation committee, as safety and mobility in our Borough is one of my concerns. I also served on the Mayor’s Equity Commission to research and recommend improvements for the Metuchen Police Department’s outcomes and community relations.

It has been my honor to serve as a Middlesex County and Metuchen Democratic Committee Member for District 7 since 2019 and the Metuchen Zoning Board of Adjustment since 2024. We see ourselves raising our children to adulthood on Myrtle Ave, and I am invested in doing whatever I can to make sure our district and town find ways to become ever more wonderful.

District 7 Committeeperson

When my husband, Bill, and I moved to Metuchen in 2006, an easy commute to work was key for us. We found Metuchen to be centrally located with easy access to trains and major highways. We loved the charming downtown with its many restaurants and shops as well. Then, when our family expanded to include our two daughters, Metuchen provided us with a safe neighborhood to raise them, excellent schools, a library system, parks, a town pool, and a robust recreational program.

Underpinning all these amenities are the wonderful residents of Metuchen; from our neighbors to fellow parents, to the community of volunteers that support town activities, which makes it a great place to live. I would like to see Metuchen continue to thrive for all its residents. It would be a privilege to serve this community as a Democratic Committeeperson for District 7.
