Bruce Township Clerk Candidate Denies Allegations
Updated: Aug 6, 2020
Alex Roncelli facing harassment allegations as Primary approaches
Serious allegations of harassment arise as voters get ready to head to the polls Tuesday.
Screenshots have surfaced online, accusing Alex Roncelli, a Republican candidate in the August 4 primary race to fill the Bruce Township’s Clerk’s seat being vacated by Susan Brockmann.
A female accuser had provided text messages reflecting correspondence in a harassing nature which were allegedly from Roncelli. A Facebook user named Lena Marion posted the screen-shots to the social media platform over the weekend, allegedly from Roncelli, who says he’ll “park in like 3 driveways where ik u [sic] visit and make a scene in 3 different locations”. Two other alleged screenshots obtained by Macomb Underground and since shared with 32 and Main and other Facebook pages from Marion revealed sexually-charged messages from Roncelli. It’s not clear how Marion knows Roncelli, if at all.
Warning: The Following Messages Contain Language That Some May Find Offensive
32 & Main reached out to Marion for comment on Sunday but at the time of this writing, we had not received a response.
In a brief statement to 32 & Main, Roncelli dismissed the accusations against him as false, saying “If Donald Trump had to address every piece of fake news he wouldn’t be POTUS”.
Roncelli is facing Susan Kraft and Trese Servitto-Smith, winner will likely go on to be the next Clerk in Bruce Township. With no democrats running in the primary, it would take a write-in challenge from a democrat to stop the rubber stamp through to office following the November 3rd general election.
