National and State Press Praise Bret Schundler's Leadership

Mayor Schundler's wide support is a result of his deeply held belief that power belongs in the hands of the people and not politicians ... Schundler calls it his "urban empowerment agenda." Voters call it a winner. Mary Kate Cary, "Profile Of Bret Schundler," Rising Tide 

Once lumped together with the state's other ailing urban centers known as the "Big Six", Jersey City is the only one to experience a true renaissance. Andrew Jacobs, "A City Whose Time Has Come Again," New York Times (April 30, 2000) 

Schundler attracted national attention by cutting Jersey City's property taxes Claire Cooper, "Jersey City is Model for GOP," The Sacramento Bee (January 20, 1994) 

Jersey City experienced some of the most significant drops in crime in America last year. "Big Drop In Rapes, Killings," The Jersey Journal (May 18, 1999) 

Since taking office in 1992, Schundler has made quality of life issues a hallmark of his administration. Dan Bischoff, "Hizzoner On The Hudson," Sunday Star Ledger (August 30th, 1998) 

Schundler reminds seasoned observers of the usefulness of pretty basic observations, such as that parents want the best for their children. Look for him in 2008. "For President In 2008 Race, Look To Bret Schundler," William F Buckley, Jr., The New York Post (July 19, 1999) 

Schundler is not a business-as-usual politician. He radiates a sense of enormous possibility, backed up by a record of specific achievement. This Schundler is an extremely bright guy. He seems to know how to implement Ronald Reagan's ideas better than Reagan did. Jeffrey Hart, "In Search Of Next President, GOP Could Look To Jersey City," Syndicated Column (1993)

Schundler's administration is a sign that urban liberalism, in which government itself is the dominant interest group, constantly and successfully lobbying itself for "compassion" toward itself, is... dead. George F Will, "A Most Unlikely Mayor Guides A New Jersey City," Syndicated Column (July 4, 1993)

Mayor Schundler faces a monumental challenge in taking the city off the critical list, but its fair to say that if Jersey City responds to his treatment, any American inner city can make a comeback. "Earthquake Hits Jersey City," The Wall Street Journal (May 13, 1993)

Schundler enjoys Ronald Reagan's essential gift: A handful of strongly held convictions define his larger world view... safe and clean streets, as many cops on the beat as the crime rate demands, secure schools that emphasize the fundamentals, low taxes, school choice for parents, and children and work instead of welfare. Lally Weymouth, "Jersey City Mayor Offers A Role Model For Giuliani," The Washington Post (December 1, 1994)

Schundler is someone to watch, my friends, especially as a key player in the battle for school choice. Rush Limbaugh, "The Battle for American Schools," The Limbaugh Newsletter (September, 1993)

In a mayor's office so corrupt that one of his predecessors' desks was actually rigged to drop bribes into visitors' laps, Schundler's fiscal proposals present a national model for urban reform while casting the mayor as a potential candidate for national office. "50 For The Future: A New Generation Of Leaders," Time Magazine (December 5, 1994)

Mr. Schundler triumphed in a city where only 6 percent of the population is registered Republican, where no Republican had won since 1917. This came in a city that is 30 percent black, 25 percent Hispanic and 10 percent Asian American. Richard L. Berke "For National G.O.P. A Mayor As A Poster Boy," The New York Times (February 9, 1994)

"Bret Schundler? Haven't heard of him? Mayor of Jersey City? Don't tell me you haven't heard of that. Anyway, this young GOP groundbreaker is on his way to being governor. I'm giving you a heads up."
