Below is a press release I received today.
BREAKING NEWS : Ellenville Village Manager, Elliott Auerbach, announced today that he will be a candidate for Ulster County Comptroller this November.
Auerbach, an Ulster County native and a life-long Democrat, brings the strength of his private and public sector background to the office of the County’s newly established position of chief accounting and reporting officer. The former three term Ellenville Mayor and Executive Director of the Rural Economic Area Partnership managed a family owned business for twenty years and enjoyed a series of successes in corporate America and private industry before returning to public administration in 2002.
Of late, Auerbach has been serving the people of Ulster County as Assistant Chairman and Assistant Secretary of the Ulster County Industrial Development Agency and as Secretary of the Ulster County Chamber of Commerce.
Ellenville Mayor Jeffrey Kaplan, who has endorsed Auerbach for Comptroller, remarked: “Elliott has the independence of mind to put the people of Ulster County ahead of party or politics. That’s why I think he’s the best person for the job.”
He is a graduate of Hofstra University with a degree in Economics-Business, has three adult children and lives in Ellenville with his wife Judi
