LONG BRANCH - The long-time mayor of Long Branch will hold on to office after he was challenged by a community activist.

Board of Education member Avery Grant hoped to unseat Adam Schneider, who was seeking an unprecedented seventh term.

Polls visited by News 12 New Jersey were relatively empty. "I don't think enough people get out and vote and I think it's important," says Bob Strong, of Long Branch. "If you don't like the way things are going, you can change it."
