Jeffery W. Foster resigned from the Wall Township Committee last week. He is applying to be the Director of Public Works for the Township and wants his application to be considered on it’s merits, not based upon his political position.

Foster, 59, has been looking to get a municipal public works position for last the last few years. He applied to be the Director of Public Works in Belmar two years ago. Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty said Foster’s application was given serious consideration. “Jeff would make an excellent Public Works Director,” Doherty told MMM in a phone interview.
Foster has also applied to be an Assistant Public Works Director in Middletown. He sold his auto repair and towing business last summer. He started working as a maintence worker at the New Jersey Department of Transportation last September. “They let me use the heavy equipment,” Foster said, “I love this work. ”Art Gallagher | Filed under: Wall Township | Tags: Anne Marie Conte, Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty, Eric Brophy, Gary Faraci, George Newberry, Jeffrey Foster, Public works, Robert Hendrickson, Vin Gopal, Wall Township, Wall Township Committee | 12 Comments »
