King’s professor Bret Schundler runs for political office
NEW YORK, August 8, 2008—Professor Bret Schundler, who teaches rhetoric and directs The Policy Center at The King’s College, is running again for the office that made him one of the GOP’s most promising stars—mayor of Jersey City, New Jersey.
An accomplished businessman and politician, Schundler became the first and only Republican mayor in Jersey City in about 100 years. The city is predominately Democratic, with only six percent of registered voters claiming to be Republicans. Schundler was mayor for nine years, from 1992 to 2001, and was the city’s longest-serving mayor in more than half a century.
Schundler left office in 2001 to pursue the New Jersey governorship, but lost twice
Jonathon Seidl, a Senior at King's and a freelance writer, wrote an article about Schundler's return to politics for The American Spectator. You can read the story here.
The King’s College is a Christian college located in the Empire State Building in New York City.
