Montclair’s Own Dan Gill Featured in Powerful Independent Film

Montclair resident and educator Dan Gill will be featured in a film at this year’s Montclair Film Festival at the Wellmont Theater on Saturday, May 2nd at 2:30pm.

Mr. Gill has taught at Montclair’s Glenfield Middle School for years, but one student still haunts him. Tourrie Moses was a gifted student, always engaged in his work and eager to learn. But as the years went by, Moses became less and less interested in school and spent more time on the streets, until a tragic decision changed his life forever. In THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY, director John Block follows Mr. Gill as he reconnects with Moses, illuminating the relationship between the two men and examining the circumstances that lead to and the aftermath of Moses’ fateful actions.

Thank you, Montclair

I’d like to thank the residents of Montclair for their support in re-electing me to the Board of Chosen Freeholders.  As a lifelong resident of Montclair, I’m incredibly humbled by the outpouring of support from all the volunteers and community leaders from across the township.

As a Freeholder At Large, I now have the privilege of representing all of Essex County while harnessing the momentum of our successes in Montclair and the rest of the 5th District.  In this new role, I remain committed to preserving open space for future generations to enjoy, strengthening our education system and ensuring the fiscal stability of our county government.

I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and working with our local, state and federal elected officials to ensure Essex County has the resources it needs to strengthen our middle class and build an economy that works for everyone. But most importantly, I look forward to working together with our residents towards a brighter future for Essex County.
