NEWBURGH – Third Ward Newburgh City Councilman Bob Sklarz has announced his intention to seek reelection for a second term.
Sklarz has served on the council since 2019 and won a special election that year replacing Jonathan Jacobson, who was elected to the State Assembly.
Sklarz has been serving on the council at a time when the council hired a city manager and comptroller and made the difficult decisions in 2019 that helped Newburgh get through the fiscal challenges it faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The councilman is a member of the Committee to Reform Newburgh Police and is active on the issue of public transportation for city residents.
Prior to being elected to the council, Sklarz was the director of human resources for Middletown, Rockland, and Rockland Children’s Psychiatric Centers for 30 years.
