Adam Schneider: Life is good!

Long Branch Mayor Adam Schneider on Friday afternoon

Long Branch Mayor Adam Schneider said he was filled with a mix of positive emotions when I spoke with him on Friday, three days after he was defeated for reelection after twenty-eight years leading the city.

“I feel a sense of pride in a way I never have before since my work is now complete,” the mayor said. “A lot of pressure lifted, almost instantly gone. I didn’t even realize how much pressure.”

Schneider said his immediate plans are to put some work into his law practice before taking some time off with his wife, Pat.  Then there will be summer days on the beach as he contemplates what is next for his career. “Sitting on the beach, reading  book and taking a nap is my perfect summer day,” he said. “I hope to have lot of those this summer.”

Court overrules Board of Elections, Schneider’s challengers go back to polls in Long Branch

Superior Court Judge Dennis R. O’Brien ruled this afternoon, in Freehold, that the Board of Elections and all district workers will provide all credentialed Challengers with total vote counts in each ward and district in today’s municipal election in Long Branch, in two hour intervals, so long as there is no disruption in the flow and voting.

Mayor Adam Schneider’s campaign, The Schneider Team, went to Court to get the order, which was opposed by the Board of Election, after their Challengers were turned away from the polls by district workers this morning.

Questions For Long Branch Mayoral Candidate John Pallone

John Pallone is the only Long Branch mayoral candidate who has not responded to MMM’s request for an interview.

Mayor Adam Schneider’s interview has been viewed over 5,600 times since we posted it on Monday.  Avery Grant’s interview has been viewed almost 2000 times since we posted yesterday.  Voters are obviously engaged.  In 2014, less than 3,000 votes were cast in the Long Branch mayoral election. This time it will probably be more than double that.

Other outlets have reported that Pallone is dodging questions from the media or that he wants the questions in advance.  In the hopes that Pallone will call back for that interview, we’re posting questions we have for him:

Avery Grant Dishes About Joe Ferraina and John Pallone: Long Branch Mayor’s Race

Avery Grant, the Long Branch School Board Member who is running for mayor of Long Branch against incumbent Adam Schneider and Councilman John Pallone invited MMM into his home for an interview on Wednesday afternoon.

In the five minute clip above, Grant reveals how former Superintendent of Schools Joe Ferraina tried to get him to run for council on Pallone’s ticket. Grant said he refused because Pallone “doesn’t exhibit leadership.”   Grant said that Ferraina is a real leader, that he wanted Ferriana to be the candidate to challenge Schneider, but that the former superintendent couldn’t do so because of the scandal surrounding the school board’s $600,000 settlement of a sexual harassment lawsuit against him.

Grant confirmed that Ferraina’s office was sound proof and had a fancy bathroom, as alleged in the “sex slave” lawsuit.  Read the rest of this entry »

Kelly: Adam Schneider is clearly the best choice for Long Branch

By Greg Kelly

“John Pallone is pathetic and so are all his running mates. They don’t care about anything. They haven’t been in this community working. We’re the ones making this a better city to live in. But I’m done being angry. It’s all about energy — which I’ll use right up to Election Day when we win.”

Long Branch Mayor John Schneider

That was Mayor Adam Schneider speaking to supporters at his lower Broadway campaign headquarters after a recent evening of cold weather but satisfying voter feedback during his door-to-door visits.

“We’re hearing a lot of good things,” explained the man seeking an eighth four-year term as the chief executive of Long Branch. “They think the city is headed in the right direction.”

Clearly, it’s election season in the City of Long Branch. City voters will go to the polls on Tuesday, May 8 to elect a mayor and six council members.
