Adrian Schrinner is the Lord Mayor of Brisbane City Council. He was sworn in on 8 April 2019 after outgoing Lord Mayor Graham Quirk announced his resignation, Schrinner was endorsed by the LNP Party Room on 31 March 2019 as Quirk's successor. He has represented the ward of Chandler for the Liberal National Party of Queensland since September 2005.
Following the 2008 election, the Lord Mayor appointed Schrinner as the Chairman of the Finance and Administration Committee. This Committee was later expanded to become the Finance, Administration and Economic Development Committee.
Following the resignation of Campbell Newman as Lord Mayor in March 2011, the Council appointed Deputy Mayor Graham Quirk to fill the role of Lord Mayor until the 2012 election. At the same meeting, Schrinner was elected as Deputy Mayor.
The Quirk Administration was elected in its own right in April 2012 and Schrinner continued to serve as Deputy Mayor following the election.
Following the election, the Lord Mayor appointed Schrinner chair of the Infrastructure Committee. This role included oversight of major projects such as the $1.5 billion Legacy Way Tunnel, open level crossing eliminations at Bald Hills and Geebung and the reconstruction of the New Farm Riverwalk after the 2011 Queensland floods. He also trialled and successfully introduced pedestrian countdown timers at traffic signals across the city.
In 2014 he led the Brisbane Parking Taskforce, which aimed to reform car parking management across the city. The package of measures included the introduction of 15-minute free parking at more than 7,000 metered spaces.
In March 2016 election, the Quirk Administration was returned with an increased majority and Schrinner was re-elected Deputy Mayor unopposed.
Following the election, Schrinner was tasked with chairing the Public and Active Transport Committee, with special responsibility for the Brisbane Metro project.
Schrinner lives in the suburb of Carindale, Queensland. He and his wife Nina have four children, Octavia, Wolfgang, Monash and Petra.
He has supported and assisted a wide range of local community groups. These include environment and bushcare groups, sporting groups, P&C Associations, church groups and charities, Neighbourhood Watch groups and seniors associations.
Adrian is the patron of the Tramway Museum at Ferny Grove. He is also vice patron for the Queensland Target Sports Inc., home of the Queensland Olympic Rifle sports shooting disciplines in Belmont.
Adrian is a member and former State Councillors of the Australian National Flag Association of Queensland. This organisation aims to promote the importance of the Australian flag and campaigns to prevent it from being changed in the future.
Adrian voted against the Brisbane City Council motion on marriage equality.
The motion read: “That this Council: 1. Supports the legalisation of marriage between consenting adults regardless of sex, sexuality or gender identity; and 2. Calls on the Federal Government to legislate for marriage equality as soon as practicable and that Council writes to the Prime Minister to that effect.” Deputy Mayor at the time, Schrinner (Chandler) voted against both.
Schrinner was accused by council opposition of being out of step with Brisbane residents with his record to oppose a council vote on same-sex marriage — championed by his predecessor, Mr Quirk. Cr Schrinner was one of five councillors to vote against a 2016 motion calling for the then Turnbull government to legalise same-sex marriage. 
“I did not enter local politics to make decisions on matters like these,” he said at the time. Cr Schrinner’s refusal to support the council motion contrasts with the strong support for same-sex marriage in Brisbane, where 79.5 per cent backed marriage equality.
Cr Schrinner said he stood by his comments at the time, adding: “I stand by the inclusivity of the city and a tolerant city where we all come together, regardless of our own personal view.”
Labor Opposition leader Peter Cumming said the “unelected” Mayor was out of touch. Cr Cumming said Cr Schrinner was not the person to lead a modern, progressive city like Brisbane.
“He is from the hard right faction of the LNP and is out of touch with the people of Brisbane on social issues,” Cr Cumming said.“When up to 80 per cent of people in some areas of Brisbane were supporting marriage equality, Cr Schrinner was the voice of the no camp." 
“Not only has he abandoned gay people, he’s also insulted the people of Inala and told them their suburb was a slum.”
