My name is Monty Brooks and I am proud of the fact that I am a lifelong resident of Linden's 4th Ward and a graduate of Linden High School. I attended Seton Hall University, where I obtained a B.A. Degree in Sociology, and pursued course work at Montclair State University to earn my State of New Jersey School Social Worker Certification.
I am employed by the Linden Board of Education as a School Social Worker and am currently assigned to Linden High School. My previous duties included serving the students of Soehl and McManus Middle Schools. Along with my school responsibilities, I have further assisted the young men and women of Linden High School while coaching football, basketball, and track.
My family includes two sons and a grandson. I am an avid reader and enjoy traveling and learning about other cultures and their traditions.
I am truly excited to be elected the 4th Ward Councilman and look forward to serving its residents, along with the entire community of Linden. As conflict resolution is one of the major tasks performed by a School Social Worker, I am confident that this experience will greatly assist me while serving as the Councilman of the 4th Ward.
