The 1981 Cornell University graduate is originally from the Rochester area, but moved to North Tonawanda in 1993, following a five-year stint in Buffalo. He completed his undergraduate degree cum laude at Manhattan College in the Bronx. Schnurr is a single father of two teenaged children, a 15-year-old son and a 14-year-old daughter, both of whom attend North Tonawanda High School.
Schnurr has held a number of positions practicing “pretty much every area of law,” including contracts, appeals, real estate, criminal, traffic, family law and personal injury. Today he manages a private practice, focusing on workers compensation cases, out of Buffalo’s Ellicott Square Building. He said he’s been active in Niagara County Democratic politics for the last six to seven years.
“I think (North Tonawanda city attorney) is a position that requires experience and judgement and I think I have both of those,” Schnurr said. “I think that residents of the city, citizens, homeowners, rents, etc., would all benefit from that experience. It’s a good thing for the city.”
Schnurr is a long-time member of the Lions Club, and was even involved in revitalizing the club in the Tonawandas under the moniker of “The Reborn Lions Club,” after the members of the original club aged out. When his son was young, Schnurr was also active in the local cub scouts.
If elected, Schnurr said he would also focus on a push to bring the city code up to date, cleaning up outdated statutes before the cause problems rather than waiting for someone to complain. He mentioned a political advertising code that caused a stir at a common council meeting in June. He is running with Democratic endorsement.
He also said that another area of code enforcement that needs some attention are laws that have to do with rental properties. He said the city needs to do something to make some of its less attractive properties “more livable.”
“While it is a paid position, the hours I’d be putting in would be much more than the pay,” he said. “And I don’t mind that.”
