                    IN HONOR OF STEPHEN G. SCHUELER


                        HON. FRANK PALLONE, JR.

                             of new jersey

                    in the house of representatives

                        Wednesday, June 11, 2008

  Mr. PALLONE. Madam Speaker, I rise today to honor a dear friend and 
someone who has served the people of Bradley Beach and my State of New 
Jersey with distinction--Mayor Stephen G. Schueler.
  Steve has served as Mayor of the Borough of Bradley Beach since 1992. 
Located on the Jersey Shore, Bradley Beach is ``New Jersey's Family 
Resort'' with a year round population of 5,000 that swells to 30,000 in 
the summer months as families come to enjoy the sand, surf, and 
bustling downtown. Since becoming Mayor, Steve has helped Bradley Beach 
continue to thrive as a vibrant town with acclaimed restaurants, quaint 
coffee shops, and a historic movie theater, in addition to its 
excellent beaches and beautiful boardwalk.
  Under Steve's leadership, the many community events that Bradley 
Beach hosts have continued to provide countless hours of enjoyment for 
families from all over New Jersey. The Summer Gazebo Concert series on 
the boardwalk, the annual fireworks display, the Italian-American 
festival, and the annual Bradley Beach Invitation Lifeguard tournament 
all provide excellent recreational opportunities for residents and 
visitors alike. Also, the end-of- summer Mayor's Clambake, which raises 
funds for local organizations, is one of the nicest events on the 
Jersey Shore each year.
  Madam Speaker, I am proud to call Steve my friend, and I wish him the 
best as he ends his time as Mayor of Bradley Beach. While he may no 
longer be mayor, his example will continue to inspire us all and 
families will continue to enjoy their visits to Bradley Beach because 
of the path he has set us on.
