Longtime incumbents retain seats on Brielle Council


BRIELLE — Incumbent council members Tim Shaak and John Visceglia, who ran unopposed in the Nov. 3 general election, have each secured new, full three-year terms on the borough council.

As of Monday morning, unofficial results from the Monmouth County Board of Elections show 4,573 total votes; Mr. Shaak received 2,277 and Mr. Visceglia received 2,270. Twenty-six write-in votes were also counted.

According to the county, only 88 percent of election night mail-in ballots have been processed, not including mail-in ballots cast on Election Day. Late mail-in ballots, polling machine votes and provisional ballots are still pending.


The governing body will maintain Republican dominance with Mr. Shaak and Mr. Visceglia joining fellow Republican council members Frank Garruzzo, Michael Gianforte, Cort Gorham and Paul Nolan, and Mayor Thomas Nicol. No Democratic candidates filed to run in the Nov. 3 election.
