12 Candidates to Vie for 4 Seats on Brick BOE

One incumbent won't run for another term on board

Township residents will choose from 12 candidates to fill four open seats on the Board of Education in November.

Board member Susan Suter, elected last year to fill an unexpired term, will now seek a full, three year term on the board.

The candidates for three full, three year terms are (in the order provided to Brick Patch by the Ocean County Clerk's office):

  • Victor Fanelli
  • David J. Fischer
  • Walter F. Campbell
  • Susan Suter
  • Lois Turner
  • Kim Terebush

Finelli, he loves to hear himself talk. He is one of those senior men who is lonely with nothing else to do but come to every meeting he can to cause trouble. Don't know much about Lois Turner, but I will be looking into her. Susan Sutter, I like her style. She seems to be very concerned for the school district. She asks very good questions and is right on target with academics. Walter Campbell is a good man from what I have seen. He gets credit for keeping the Business Administrator on his toes with all the facilities. At the last meeting, the President said that Mr.Campbell treats all these facility projects like they are being done at his own house. I liked that. Karen Cusanelli seems like she is a sharp one. She asks good questions and seems to be on the mark about all the things being done wrong in the school district by former Superintendent Hrycenko. If you go to the meetings, you will probably get the same impressions that I have. Just voting party lines will ruin the progress I see happening now. I still have further research to do, but that's it for now.

Jay jay......Still undecided on who to to vote for. I can agree with your implied point that there should be a few more candidates to choose from. But with that being said, some of your statement(s) about those who chose to run are innaccurate.

This is the story about the Democrats and these people are part of the Brick Township Council.and this information is a matter of public records.With all the dirt on lydecker, fozman and ducey. lydecker can only rent, she had three court judgements against her and she declared bankruptcy in 2010. Lydeckers house forclosed in florida and she had 12 different addresses in 1 yr. and does not even pay property taxes here. fozman who has been Convicted of a Criminal Offense- Drugs contributing to the Delinquency of a minor. ducey collects Taxpaid salaries, benefits and pension as a municipal prosecuator in three twons. Ducey also had a fourth public job at $140 an hour as a lawyer for the Brick Township board of ed. he works the system for personal bebefits, yet he has the nerve to lie about Republicans

We need to pick three for the 3 year term and one for the 1 year term. Unhappy with the present Board members, so I'm looking for some guidance.
