OLD BRIDGE – With Election Day somewhat greater than two months away, rivalries are heating up within the Previous Bridge Township Council — a lot in order that candidates are submitting police studies towards one another and their households.
Mark Razzoli, who’s operating for the council seat in Ward four as a Democrat, first observed his marketing campaign indicators gone lacking and vandalized after he acquired a name from township code enforcer Damien Gil, he stated.
“My indicators have been getting stolen and so we did a littler surveillance within the space,” Razzoli defined. ” It seems that my opponent’s spouse stole one in the present day. We have got it on video.”

Razzoli’s opponent is Ward 4 Republican incumbent Alan Rosencranz. Razzoli is alleging that he captured Rosencranz’s wife, Gail, on camera returning one of his campaign signs after taking it out of the ground on Wednesday.
“I have it on video,” he said. “I confronted her and she admitted it.”
According to a police report that Razzoli filed on Wednesday, the incident occurred earlier that day on Ticetown Road and Rose Lane.
The responding officer wrote in his report, “I then spoke with Gail Rosencranz who admitted to taking the sign. She went on to say that her husband is running against Razzoli and had to get permission from Society Hill Association to place his signs in the same area.”
Mr. Rosencranz said that the sign Razzoli put up off of Ticetown Road “was on private property” and was within the boundaries of the development Rosencranz and his wife reside in.
“He did not have permission to put it up, he didn’t ask for permission,” Rosencranz said. “I have mine up because the homeowners association before gave me permission to put them there.”
Rosencranz said that the last few times Razzoli put signs near that plot, the homeowners association board took them down, not his wife.
Rosencranz claimed that Razzoli “staked out” the scene and followed his wife to the Old Bridge Municipal Utilities Authority, where he said his wife went to pay a bill, to confront her. Rosencranz said police were also dispatched to the scene.
“It’s unfortunate that he has to use the police as he did when he could have just called me and discussed it,” Rosencranz said.
He called Razzoli’s filming of his wife “combative and intimidating.”
