OCEANPORT: Another member of the borough council has chosen to resign.
Mayor Jay Coffey confirmed that Oceanport Councilman Stuart Briskey has filed a letter of resignation with the borough clerk's office, effective March 19.
"He did not provide a reason," Coffey said.
The local Republican party committee now has 15 days to submit three names for the council's consideration to replace Briskey.
Coffey said the Oceanport Council has 30 days to appoint one of the three candidates. If no decision is made after 30 days, the Republican committee will choose one of three candidates. If the committee does not choose a candidate, then the council can make their own selection, independent from the three names submitted.
Briskey first joined the council in August, 2015 as a replacement for former councilman Robert Lynch, who also chose to resign. He was reelected for a full 3-year term in 2016, along with his running mate Joe Irace.
