Belmar Democrats

Under Democratic leadership, Belmar has flurished. Over the past 7 years, the borough has seen unprecidented growth, while keeping property taxes in check. It is because of this leadership that businesses have moved to Belmar and homeowners have seen no increase in the portion of their property taxes that Belmar controls.

Mayor Matt Doherty

Elected in 2011, Mayor Doherty has provided leadership during historic disaster that was Superstorm Sandy and afterwards in our rapid recovery. From boardwalk and pavilion restoration, to the rebuilding and maintence of our infrastructure, to attracting successful businesses to our community, Mayor Doherty, along with the Democratic majority on the Council, has always kept Belmar first.
