Congressional Candidate Froelich Begins Campaign in Tinton Falls

4th Congressional District candidate speaks at Seabrook Village


Fourth Congressional District candidate Brian Froelich kicked off his campaign to be elected in November's election on Monday afternoon in Tinton Falls.

Froelich, of Spring Lake, is a democrat who is facing off against incumbent Chris Smith. Smith, a Republican, has been in office for 32 years.

Froelich spoke before a crowd of seniors at Seabrook Village, a retirement community in Tinton Falls, and spoke about Medicare, Medicaid and how he plans to keep costs down for seniors.

Froelich highlighted the effects that the proposed House budget plan would have on Seniors.

"We need a Congressman that will stand up for Seniors and protect Medicare, Medicaid, and programs that assist Seniors living on fixed incomes," Froelich said. "We need to judge our congressmen on big, not small issues and on facts, not myths."

The 1,400 residents of Seabrook make up a large voting portion of Tinton Falls and on average, 70% of the residents vote in all elections that take place within the state.

The community is also a regular campaign stop for many candidates and Chris Smith has also been invited to speak there in the coming weeks and months.

It's time to get rid of Chris Smith. 32 years too long.

Smith CLEARLY doesn't have the best interest of seniors in mind...he wants to cut Medicare, Medicaid and Meals on Wheels?? It's time we vote this guy out. Brian Froelich for Congress all the way!

Brian Froelich is focused on the big issues that affect all of the constituents in the Fourth Congressional District. Medicare and Medicaid not only have an immediate affect on seniors, but also have an affect on all of people in the Fourth District. Froelich, unlike his opponent Chris Smith, will tackle the big issues that we need to face and propose bipartisan ideas that can actually be passed on Congress. Chris Smith has had his chance to prove to the residents of the Fourth District that he is up for the job, but time and time again has proved that he is nothing more than a Washington career politician solely focused on himself and his reelection. It’s time to send a new Congressman to Washington who is actually focused on helping the people, not himself.
