His brother, John Hughes, is the longest serving federal magistrate. His half-brother, Michael Murphy, is an influential lobbyist, former County Prosecutor and candidate for Governor. His sister-in-law is a Superior Court judge.

Hughes previously served as Deputy Executive Director of the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse. In 1997, he had been elected to the Board of Chosen Freeholders and served two terms, including one as Freeholder President.

Hughes is a graduate of Thomas Edison State College and a resident of Princeton.
