Long Branch residents are advised not to let their children answer the door this weekend when canvassers for John Pallone’s mayoral campaign come knocking for votes.
An alert Long Branch resident tipped us off to the fact that Christian Hendrickson, a Tier 2 level registered sex offender who was convicted in 2012 of Endangering the Welfare of a Child for Possessing and Sharing Child Pornography went door to door last weekend with Pallone and his running mate Bill Dangler.
Avery Grant, one of Pallone’s opponents in the election that takes place on Tuesday, May 8th, told MMM that he would not welcome a registered sex offender to his door to door campaign. “We all make mistakes,” Grant said. “I would help the man recover and get a job, but no I wouldn’t have him go door to door for me.” Grant noted that he used to volunteer for a prisoner re-entry program.
Mayor Adam Schneider has not yet returned our call on this matter.
We left Pallone a voice mail requesting an explanation. He has yet to return any of our messages.
