From Shore News Today: John Doring followed in his father’s footsteps and chose a career path at Brigantine’s Department of Public Works. Last Thursday, John was named Acting Superintendent of Public Works following the retirement of Ernie Purdy. Purdy’s retirement will not be effective until the end of 2014, so Doring will have the acting title until then.
Born and raised in Brigantine, Doring attended the Central School (the present library), the new North School, Atlantic High School and graduated from what was then called Atlantic County Vo-Tech. He worked part-time at Public Works until accepting a full-time position in September 1977. He worked in every department at Public Works and became a foreman in 1997.
