Brian Schneider runs for trustee in Forestville

FORESTVILLE – Brian Schneider is running for a seat on the Forestville Village Board on March 18. Schneider is running for trustee unopposed and is endorsed by the Democrat and Republican parties.

Except for his time in the U.S. Marines, Schneider is a lifelong Forestville resident. He graduated from Forestville Central School in 1986 and then joined the United States Marine Corps. He served in the Marines for 21 years.

When he retired in 2007, Schneider and his family moved back to Forestville. Schneider married Brenda White and they have two children, Emily and Eric who both graduated from FCS.

“I think my background and experiences will help me be part of the board to lead our village into the future. As a taxpayer I want to ensure every tax dollar is used wisely and for the public good. Please exercise your rights and come out and vote for me in the upcoming elections,” Schneider said.

Voting will be held at the Forestville Municipal Building, 18 Chestnut St., from noon to 9 p.m.
