Ducey Hosting First Promised "Mayor's In" Event

Brick Mayor John Ducey is inviting residents to stop by town hall after hours to talk with him and key administrators, in a new series of events dubbed "Mayor's In."

The first "Mayor's In" event is planned for Jan. 28. Ducey announced the series of events in his welcoming speech after being sworn in as mayor Jan. 1. He said the event is aimed to better address residents' issues and provide the chance to talk to them directly. 

Ducey said "Mayor's In" and "Mayor's Out" -- where the mayor will head out to events organizers ask him to speak at -- are part of his 100 Day Plan of things to accomplish early in his first year as mayor.

The complete announcement from Ducey appears below:

Mayor John G. Ducey is proud to announce that his first Mayor In Night event will be held on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 at 6pm at the Brick Township Municipal Building.  Citizens will have the opportunity to meet Mayor Ducey and discuss Township matters.  Department and division heads from the Township will also be on hand to provide assistance to citizens.  The event is open to all residents of Brick Township.


“Many residents are not able to come to town hall during working hours due to their jobs or other commitments.  These evening sessions have been created to give these people and any other citizen the chance to meet me and township officials and share their thoughts and concerns with us,” said Mayor Ducey.  “I am looking forward to meeting the people of Brick Township and working with them.”


Mayor Ducey has made government accessibility a key platform of his administration.  He will be holding Mayor In and Mayor Out events throughout the year.  Mayor In events will be hosted at the Municipal Building.  Mayor Out events will be held at various locations in the community.


The Mayor In and Mayor Out events are part of Mayor Ducey’s 100 Day Plan for Brick Township.  The overall goals of the plan are to improve quality of life and to make Brick a better, more affordable place to live.  The plan will help cut costs, improve services, increase revenues, advance economic development and address public health, safety and environmental concerns.  The full plan, as well as updates on progress being made, has been made available on the Mayor’s page on the township website,www.bricktownship.net

Is your issue you just posted more important then the drug concerns we have in Brick. What are some of your solutions to stem the drug problem that is enveloping all our communities. If you "Brickneeds help can help solve the drug problem we have I'd love to hear and understand your solutions.

Not So Dumb, I agree. @Brick needs help.. rather than just complaining due to sour grapes and a lost election, make a real point! Not Republican or Democrat, make a valid point!!!

So, don't you have any solutions to the problems that Brick faces in 2014. I figured as much To much B...S... and no facts or solutions for anything. After listening to the Gov. today he presented some ideas that I found doable. I think part of the problem is that we the residents aren't given the information on the workings of what goes on in the police dept. for various issues. As well as the governing body. I've learned from experience that open public meetings when council meets is just a time to complain about things thatt have already been done. That's why the "Mayor's In" program is a good place to ask questions about the inner workings of our government and share some suggestions we have to fix our problems

Not so dumb, I agree with what you've said. At least he's getting the ball rolling and he's open to suggestions. That's a good sign.

I mean do you work overtime for nothing Jerry Belle, everyones time is valuable. Nobody does anything for nothing these days, perhaps you would want to volunteer in your job.
