Republican Brick mayoral candidate Domenick Brando has dropped out of the race, he told Shorebeat this week.

Brando said health reasons led to him to bow out of the campaign against incumbent Democratic Mayor John Ducey, who is running for re-election after serving one term.

“Unfortunately, it’s something I have to do,” Brando said.

Sources said former Councilwoman Ruthanne Scaturro is the most likely candidate to replace Brando in the race. Scaturro served on the Brick Township council from 2003 through 2011.

    Health reasons?? The job he was promised was given to another. No reason to run as the “sacrificial lamb”. Scaturro’s husband already got a county job, so what will she be promised?

    How is the candidate replaced? What process is followed? If someone has to win a primary election to become the candidate then shouldn’t their replacement be the person they ran against in the primary?

      Excellent question. See my previous comment. We never have a choice any way. The Brick Republican Club similar to the Club John Got was a member of makes to choice. Why? Because then can.

      Time for the 3 R’s – Rise up, Rebel and Reform.

    One more thing…what’s with that picture? It looks like that lady is giving Brando the evil eyes. That look reminds me of the mother that confronts Chief Brody in Jaws and slaps him for not shutting down the beach when her son dies. Brando is barely in focus lol.

      I assure you she is not giving him the evil eye. The pic goes back to the time Brando served on the Council and she was accepting recognition for the Brick Branch of the Ocean County Library.

      She is assuredly a Lady. At that time we were promised a huge enlargement of the Library itself and additional parking with a suggested path for at least bicycle riders and walkers to extend from the Foodtown property diagonally to the Library. Without a word, without a public meeting it was changed into an expensive redecorating job.

      God Help the Residents of Brick because there is no end in sight.

      Oh and by-the law the spouse of an ex-Brick cop now employed by the county was on the Council with Brando and others who did not help us.

    She wont get my vote. Let the guy who came in second to Brando take his place. I will never vote for Steve Scaturro’s wife.

      Any idea how that legally works?

    • Nan

      I’m with you. How about we team up to hold meetings and I will educate everyone about how to do a write-in vote. There are rules to follow but we have time to ensure we cross out T’s and dot our i’s. I so support Marty.

      As a duly elected Brick District Committeewoman how is it I did not have a voice in the choice of a replacement? In fact why is it not statutorily required to replace him with the next highest vote getter?

  • MAGA

    Brando must have polling data that shows he is getting beat 10-1 by Douchey.

  • MAGA

    Where’s Dan Toth?

  • Surfrider

    Brick politics just keep marching down the corrupt road……

  • Chief Wahoo

    The ex cop isn’t working out. Hey. Let’s try an ex cops wife. Public takers. Every single one of them. Taking your money and laughing all the way to the bank. Get well soon Brandi, I’m sure your taxpayer funded health insurance will cure you of your health ailments and live a long life to spend those 3 pensions. Now you see why Ducey lied about taking health insurance. You never know when you need it. Plus no one cares that you lied ……
