What you should know
Mr. Schley has never held public office and has the least relevant experience of all the candidates. He has also not filed campaign finance disclosure reports with the Federal Election Commission despite having campaign staffers and literature.
What about the Bronx?
His website includes information on the old Congressional District 15, which does not include the Bronx. However, he did make it both debates held in the Bronx.
Who wants him to win?
Mr. Schley does not have any support from elected officials or major political players. He has said he has grass roots support from people of all different backgrounds from across the district.
Quote: “Public service runs deep in me, I’m a former fireman and NYU honor student … so I’m saying at the end of the day, it’s the people needing a digression from the status quo,” Mr. Schley said at the BronxNet debate.
