The shout-out of the day award went to Freeholder Brendan Gill earlier today at the Essex County reorganization ceremony at Essex County Community College.

It came from U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who singled out Gill, who served as his campaign manager last year.

“But for your labors, I might not be in office right now,” said Booker, with a nod to the new freeholder vice president.
