Bryan will be joining Beckerman Public Relations as a senior member of their public affairs team.

Zimmer was very complimentary of Bryan’s work for the city of Hoboken.

“Dan has been a key member of my team from the beginning and has played an important role in all that we have achieved,” said Zimmer in a statement.

“I am confident that he will be as much of an asset in his new position as he has been to the City of Hoboken. Dan has played a critical role both in the day-to-day business of the City and in helping to manage the many crises our City has faced. He has become a good friend both to me and to his colleagues in City Hall. We wish him the very best in his new career.”

Bryan echoed the positive sentiment expressed by the mayor of Hoboken, also offering thanks to the community for their ability to work together with the Zimmer administration.

“I want to thank Mayor Zimmer for putting her trust in me to serve as Chief of Staff to her and her administration over the past five and a half years,” said Bryan in an email.

“I’m proud of all that we’ve achieved, and I know that the Zimmer administration has many great accomplishments still on the horizon. I’d also like to thank the entire Hoboken community for the ability to work together to make our City better.”

  1. I’d resign too if the FBI questioned me about my boss as well. Smart kid for taking the high road and riding off in to the sunset before the axe falls.
