Talk, again, that Long Branch mayor won’t run next year

In Monmouth County, there is speculation that Long Branch Mayor Adam Schneider will not seek re-election in the May 2010 municipal election. Of course, there is talk all the time that Schneider won't run – usually just before he does. Some locals think the number one reason he'll seek re-election could be spite: his desire to stop rival Brian Unger, a City Councilman, from becoming his successor.

Long Branch is one of seven towns with non-partisan mayoral races next year, along with Newark, Paterson, Trenton, Bayonne, West Orange and Manchester.
