Daniel R. Benson

Daniel R. "Dan" Benson (born November 22, 1975) is an American Democratic Party politician who serves in the New Jersey General Assembly representing the 14th legislative district. Benson, who previously served on the Mercer County Board of Chosen Freeholders, replaced Assemblywoman Linda R. Greenstein, after she was elected to the New Jersey Senate in a special election. He was sworn in on January 10, 2011 to fill Greenstein's vacant Assembly seat.



Benson received a B.S degree from Georgetown University, studying physics and government, and a Master of Public Policy degree from Rutgers University's Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, studying science and technology policy.[1]

He was elected to the Hamilton Township Council in 2002, becoming the youngest elected councilman in Hamilton's history.[2] He served on the council until 2005, when he gave up his seat to run for the New Jersey General Assembly. Benson lost the Assembly race, finishing behind the incumbents, Republican Bill Baroni and Democrat Linda R. Greenstein.[3]

In 2008, Benson was elected to serve on the Mercer County Board of Chosen Freeholders. When Greenstein won a special election to fill the remainder of Baroni's Senate term in November 2010, Benson ran for the vacant seat. On January 8, 2011, Benson was selected by a Democratic convention of Mercer and Middlesex counties to replace Greenstein.[4] He was sworn in on January 10.
