The 11th Legislative District’s new Democratic team, Senator Vin Gopal (Long Branch), Dr. Margie Donlon (Ocean Twp.) and Luanne Peterpaul, Esq. (Long Branch), have officially filed for the June 6th Primary Election for the New Jersey State Legislature. The 11th Legislative district is made up of 19 towns within Monmouth County.

More than 900 signatures were gathered in support of re-electing Senator Gopal and winning back the two seats in the General Assembly, a press release from his office said.

“We are proud to represent the diversity and strength of Monmouth County, and are thrilled by the broad support we have received thus far,” said Gopal, Donlon, and Peterpaul.


“Monmouth, a County, needs a united team to fight for the future of our families. Our communities deserve strong public safety measures, critical investments in programs and services for seniors and families, and leaders who truly care about the economic future of our unique communities. We are the team that will deliver for Monmouth County,” the team emphasized.

Gopal is in his second term in the State Senate and serves as Chair of the Senate Education Committee. Donlon is a practicing physician and currently serves as Deputy Mayor of Ocean Township. Peterpaul is a former Municipal Judge for the Cities of Long Branch and Asbury Park, and is a former County Prosecutor.

Senator Gopal won unanimous support from the Monmouth County Democratic Organization last month, and Donlon and Peterpaul won the overwhelming majority of the organization’s support in the February nominating convention
