Mordechai Burnstein Appointed First-Ever Frum Jackson Councilman

The Jackson Township Council held a special session on Thursday evening, using the opportunity to appoint and swear-in Mordechai Burnstein to replace the Council seat vacated by Marty Flemming, who resigned following a Lakewood Alerts investigation.

Immediately after being sworn-in, Burnstein was appointed as the Council liaison to the township’s Planning Board.

Burnstein’s appointment to the position marks a meteoric political rise for the now-Councilman, Jackson GOP Club president, and Jackson Planning Board member, and chaplain.

Officials tell Lakewood Alerts that Burnstein was approached by members of both sides of the political bickering in Jackson to put his name in contention to become the new Councilman, as he “has brought unity to the Jackson GOP Club, and we could use that on the Council,” an official said.

  1. If Burnstein was approached by members of both sides of the political bickering in Jackson to put his name in contention to become the new Councilman, why did Borelli and Chisolm vote against his appointment?
