Less than 48 hours after candidates met deadlines to register to run for their parties’ primaries this week, door-to-door glossy signs and a website have emerged from the two candidates hoping to win the Republican nomination for mayor.
The winner – party-backed Domenick Brando, a former council, and former council candidate Martin Ebert – will face incumbent Democrat John Ducey in November to lead the township.
Brando’s campaign delivered glossy postcards door-to-door Wednesday while Ebert launched a website titled MakeBrickGreatAgain.com, a take on Republican President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan last year.
The Brando mailer says the candidate will “make Brick the safest city once again,” cut taxes and “eliminate all political patronage jobs created,” among a number of other bullet points. Ebert, on his website, makes no campaign promises, but includes his biography, including his military service in the U.S. Air Force, top secret clearance and membership in numerous township organizations. Ebert currently owns a legal courier service.
