A Brick Councilman who switched his party alignment last year hit the town’s Democrats for their opposition of an anti-sanctuary state resolution he pushed last week.

“Talk is cheap. Brick Township residents want action,” Councilman Jim Fozman said. “If Mayor [John] Ducey and the Brick Demcorats truly opposed Gov. Murphy’s dangerous immigrant directive and our sanctuary state status, they would allow a vote on my resolution, and they would support it. Anything short of that is a cop out. Their words are meaningless.”

Fozman switched parties one day after endorsing then-U.S. Senate candidate Bob Hugin last August.

Ducey claimed Fozman was disgruntled because he was not given the position of director of Public Works in the township, an allegation that councilman’s wife, Vera Schilling Fozman, strongly denied.

Democrats currently hold a majority of seats on the township’s seven-member council.

“Elections are about choices, and their voters in Brick now have a choice — vote for Republicans who will stand up to Gov. Murphy’s radical policies or Democrats who don’t have the courage to do the same,” Fozman said.
