Auerbach Gets More Union Support

Ulster County Comptroller Candidate Elliot Auerbach has received a powerful endorsement from the New York State Union of Police Associations, Inc. (N.Y.S.U.P.A.).

N.Y.S.U.P.A. President Anthony Solfaro said, “The endorsement of this organization of your candidacy is a result of your record of public service and fairness that warrants the support of the law enforcement community of Ulster County.”

The New York State Union of Police Associations, Inc. is the labor representative for more than 90 county, city, town, and village police benevolent organizations in 26 counties throughout the state, including the eleven police benevolent associations in Ulster County.

Auerbach, who was honored by the endorsement, said, “My strong support of law enforcement and my first hand knowledge of the energy and effort that goes into protecting the public underscores my dramatic respect for the men and women of the police profession who serve our communities on a daily basis.”

Auerbach, an Ulster County native and life-long Democrat, is currently the Ellenville Village Manager. He will bring 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. Auerbach’s public sector background includes three terms as Mayor of Ellenville and also a two year stint as Director of the Rural Economic Area Partnership. In the private sector, Auerbach managed a family-owned business for 20 years and has enjoyed a series of successes in corporate America and private industry.
