Brick Township’s Republican organization has selected a candidate to replace Dan Toth on the November election ballot.
The Republican county committee met Wednesday night and unanimously chose Martin Ebert to be their candidate, said Brian DeLuca, the Republican municipal committee chairman. Ebert had already been running for a seat on the Board of Education and submitted a letter withdrawing from that race today. At the same time, he filed the paperwork required for the council race.
Ebert, of Tall Oaks Drive, has been a resident of Brick for 30 years, DeLuca said. He has owned a legal services support business for some time.
Ebert replaces Dan Toth on the ballot. Toth withdrew his candidacy after an arrest earlier this month stemming from an allegation made by a teen in Jackson.
