Stephanie Schmid Continues to Gain Endorsements from Monmouth County Democratic Leaders in Support of Congressional Bid



Additional democratic leaders in Monmouth County are proudly endorsing Stephanie Schmid to be the 2020 Democratic nominee for Congress in New Jersey’s 4th District. Those supporting Stephanie include:  Patricia Sheehan, Avon Municipal Chair and former Mayor of East Brunswick; Joan Gotti, Little Silver Municipal Vice Chair and Little Silver Democratic Club President; Little Silver Democratic Club; Scott Berlin, President of the Freehold Township Democrats and former Freehold Township Committee Candidate.


Joan Gotti, President of Stephanie’s home Democratic Club in Little Silver, issued the following statement: Little Silver Democratic Club members overwhelmingly recognized Ms. Schmid’s significant experience as a U.S. Foreign Service Officer, and her unflagging support of human rights in that capacity as well as in her work on women’s rights, where she led the Foreign Policy Program for the Center for Reproductive Rights. The overwhelming vote in favor of Ms. Schmid signals the unity of Little Silver Democrats to work together to defeat Chris Smith, restore the principle of “Country Over Party,” and elect a woman who will actually represent Congressional District 4 for the first time in 40 years.


“Stephanie Schmid is the only candidate in this race with the diverse coalition of supporters needed to defeat Chris Smith,” said Scott Berlin. “She has a track record of results, not just in her professional career as a foreign service officer and human rights advocate, but locally in Monmouth County as an activist. When I ran for Freehold Township Committee last year, there was nobody in CD4 I saw at more events or knocking on more doors than Stephanie Schmid. She had our backs, now it’s time for us to have her’s.”


Stephanie is grateful for these endorsements. “I am thrilled to have the support from my home club in Little Silver and our President, Joan, as well as local leaders Patricia and Scott,” Stephanie said. “As our County Conventions and primary election are quickly approaching, it is critical that our party and our community come together and work toward the common goal of bringing new representation to CD4. I look forward to leading this grassroots campaign to victory in June and then again in November.”
