A local grass roots organization calling themselves ‘Better Brigantine’ & ‘Concerned Citizens for Brigantine’ don’t seem to be big fans of part-time residents, visitors or tourists. That’s the story we hear from those that set up shop on a Facebook page. ‘Better Brigantine’ is a name being used by many local organizations. But there’s one in particular Facebook page that sadly features many city employees, local business owners and politicians as ‘followers’.
With their days numbered, many expect this group to break out all the stops in order to hold on to the gravy train known as the Brigantine taxpayers.
Some “fans” of this page might hide behind fake names. Some may occupy substantial city hall positions. ‘Concerned Citizens for Brigantine’ consists of a small but vocal group of ‘insiders’ and public employees that seem to be represented by Sandi Williams known for her aggressive attacks on anyone that disagrees with Brigantine City Unions demands.
Ms. Williams disclosed her affiliation with the Brigantine Republican Party in a document archived at a NJ Election site. Ms Williams submitted that she was an office administrator for a Pleasantville based business run by Andy Simpson. Mr. Simpson is a Republican Brigantine Councilman.

after 20 plus years and owning 4 houses in Brigantine I finally sold and got out of this corrupt little town. the town is going no where until the trailer park citizens(see picture above) die off.
No room in Brig for anyone but elites, right, Henry? Should there be a minimum income? Maybe you and your friends could decide who’s allowed to live here? What an oppressive, totalitarian attitude you have. How very Democrat.
‘William Penn’…any relation lol? First up the corruption comment Henry made is absolutely spot on. There is without a doubt a small group of people who control what goes on in the town, and benefits are handed out to those who fall in line. Secondly, regarding the ‘trailer park citizens’ comment…bad choice of words, BUT what they do to taxpayers of the island, who support all the local businesses throughout the summer, dressing up mockingly and basically giving a big FU to those summer goers, is both disrespectful and immature. Henry was not specifying who should live there but is giving a general opinion on the disrespect ‘locals’ think is justifiable because a person who owns a home in the town but doesn’t live there year round shouldn’t be treated like an adult? Slip on the outsider shoes for a second, how would YOU feel? This tradition needs to go, otherwise one day, you may not have any of those ‘dispicable shoobies’ “footing” (get it…foot, another horrible nickname locals dish out) the taxes and fees on the island. Have respect for everyone, not just the ones who were born in the town.
Dave P: I agree with your comment but you are too kind.
William Penn: I hate to tell you but the “elites” don’t live in Brigantine, they live in
Avalon & Stone Harbor. Secondly how do you figure oppression and totalitarianism
equals Democrat? You do realize democrats are liberals don’t you? Those two things seem more conservative to me.
And Henry, I don’t think the trailer park crack was so bad. As a matter of fact I think
those people should stay off the beach before somebody calls the Marine
Mammal Stranding Center.
Homeowner since 1957
Brigantine’s second home owners should hold their own party. A political party to rid this corrupt little piece of sand of the local morons who parade around like they have the right to ruin the home and business values of anyone not aligned with their group. Low class, low education, and a high level of ignorance is the Brigantine locals’ brand. The majority of these types are just pineys at the beach. Surprised that even some of them have all of their teeth. Just NJ Hillbilles. Elites indeed. I think not.
