Brick Township Republican voters, in the primary election being held today, will choose one of two candidates who are seeking to represent the party in November's township council race.

Former Councilman Domenick Brando is running under the banner "Republican for Checks and Balances," and John Ciocco – a former council candidate who was not successful in his bid last year – is running under the "Responsible Republican Leadership" banner.

The local party decided to hold an open primary this year, John Catalano, the Brick Republican Club president, previously told Brick Patch.

Whichever candidate wins the primary will face off against Councilwoman Andrea Zapcic, who is running unopposed for the Democratic nomination for the council race.

Zapcic was appointed by the council to fill the seat of John Ducey, who was elected mayor last November.

Even if a Republican candidate is successful in November, the majority of the council will not change. Currently, all of the seats on the council are occupied by Democrats.

Wonder which one Stevie is for? Brando has to realize the people of Brick don't want him around anymore !! Why doesn't he go to Toms River and get a job with Steve, the people there must be fed up with all the patronage going on there as well !! What exactly is his disability, maybe's a brain injury, thinking people want him in Town Hall again!!!!

Oh yeah, Brando's "disability", his "no show patronage job at MUA, his double dipping, oh I'm sorry I meant triple dipping, along with his arrogance will all work against his efforts. He played us once. Do not let him do it again.

If a candidate that has the gumption to engage in tough negotiations with the public taker unions, then you'll have a winner on your hands.
