The Brigantine City Council meeting from Feb 5. Click thru to watch. Featured in VIDEO #1 : Councilman DeLucry’s defense of potty and smoking breaks during council meetings. Unfortunately, Mr. DeLucry did not read the petition as of this past Wednesday night, but does discuss many items related to the certified Brigantine citizens petition to remove the position of Public Safety Director.

In video #2 : Councilman Tony Pullella continues his quest for streamlining control of Brigantine operations with the removal of Police, Fire & Beach Chief positions. Arguably the most powerful person on council, Mr. Pullella is a well known local builder, Real Estate speculator, and former Laguna Grill bar/restaurant owner. Together with co-councilmen; Dr. Frank Kern & Attorney Rick Delucry at his side, the Pullella powerplay is on the move.
At the end of the meeting ( see video #2 ), an interesting ‘on the record’ comment was made by Councilman Joe Piccardi, announcing that a Mr. Burlington was not his friend, but indeed was his husband. It’s not apparent what prompted the honorable Mr. Piccardi to make this announcement as Council was wrapping up, but we certainly want to congratulate him & Mr. Burlington. We wish them the best.
