Long Branch held elections for Mayor and their five City Council positions yesterday. The elections are held every four years, typically on the second Tuesday in May. The incumbent Mayor and Council members were all running for re-election against one other mayoral candidate and just two other council candidates. It was a close race for Mayor with Adam Schneider winning over Avery Grant by a narrow margin of just over 200 votes, for his 7th term of office. The incumbent Council members were also re-elected with the top votes going to John Pallone, followed by Dr. Mary Jane Celli, Joy Bastelli, Kate Billings and Michael Sirianni. This election showed a poor turn out at the polls with under 2700 total mayoral votes cast. There are approximately 14,000 registered voters in Long Branch. Past Presidential elections have brought close to 10,000 City voters to the polls and past Gubernatorial elections brought about 5700. Low turn outs at the local level elections are most likely due in part to it being held in May, rather than Election Day in November.
