|(May 16, 2020, 8:40 p.m.) -- Long time Long Beach investor and business owner Kurt Schneiter, a former appointee to City Hall's "Belmont Shore Parking and Business Improvement Area Advisory Commission" who in 2015 sought and received City Hall approval to convert the former "Yankee Doodles" sports bar into an upscale fitness facility with rooftop facilities (4101 E. Olympic Plaza) -- today (May 16) allowed activities that he described as an "experiment" at his Iconix fitness center. The activities are beyond those allowed by the most recent Public Health order of the City's Health Officer. Among those taking part was former 3rd dist. Councilman (2006-2014) Gary DeLong.
Accompanying his words with photographs documenting what took place, Mr. Schneiter wrote on the Iconix Facebook page: "The day was a success and now we are confident that we can safely and responsibly reopen when we are allowed to." LBREPORT.com provides Mr. Schneiter's words verbatim below:
We ran an experiment today.

The most recent (May 13) "Stay at Home" order of Long Beach's City Health Officer (a senior city staff position) can be viewed at this link and states in part:
Continuation of the Safer at Home Order to Begin Transitioning the City into Stage 2 of the Governor’s Roadmap to Recovery
Mr. Schneiter, who owns/operates Long Beach-based Maverick Investments, has over the years contributed to a number of LB electeds (including the most recent re-election campaign for City Prosecutor Doug Haubert, whose office would decide on prosecution, if any, of misdemeanor charges against anyone stemming under LB's City Health Officer order.) [LBREPORT com believes violation of the Order, like all LB misdemeanors, can also be enforced administratively as a civil matter by imposing a fine.]
Among the public record campaign contributions
Mr. Schneiter's Maverick Investments also contributed $1,000 to 2016 pro-sales tax "Mayor Garcia, Foster & O'Neill Committee to Support Measures A & B to Protect Police & Fire and Repair Infrastructure in Long Beach..." which was an "officeholder controlled committee" whose officeholder is Mayor Robert Garcia. The contribution was made on July 26, 2016 (after the June 7, 2016 election in which LB voters approved the City Hall-sought sales tax.)
Mr. Schneiter also gave $1,000 on Feb. 18, 2018 to "Long Beach Citizens for Good Government" (later renamed "Neighbors for a Better Long Beach")
