EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - The East Brunswick candidates for Mayor and Township Council will meet each other for socially-distanced debates this Wednesday evening in an event to be recorded - but not edited - by EBTV. The moderator for the program will be Dr. Alan Brodman, retired Social Studies teacher and We the People Advisor from East Brunswick High School. Brodman spoke this year at the EBHS graduation as Educator of the Year for 2019/20.
Questions will be posed to the candidates by Maureen Berzok, Editor of TAPinto East Brunswick and Nicholas Muscavage, a reporter for The Home News Tribune. Due to COVID-19 concerns, the mayoral candidates will be presented in one session, and the council candidates will speak in another. There will be no audience at the live taping.
