Elliott Auerbach has established the Office of Comptroller to serve as an advocate on behalf of the people of Ulster County and act as their independent fiscal watch dog. Elected to the position in 2008 and re-elected to a second term in 2010, Elliott brings the strength of his private and public sector background to the office. He has insisted upon “best practices” to ensure an efficient government that is responsive to the needs of its citizens by taking on the tough issues of fraud and abuse of taxpayers’ dollars.
He is a former three-term Ellenville Mayor and Executive Director of the Rural Economic Area Partnership during the Clinton Administration. Auerbach managed a closely-held family company for twenty years and enjoyed a series of successes in corporate America and private industry before returning to public service as Ellenville’s Village Manager and chief operating officer in 2002.
In addition, Auerbach served 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.
Elliott grew up in Ellenville and attended Ellenville High School. He is a graduate of Hofstra University with a degree in Economics-Business, has pursued graduate studies at Long Island University and SUNY New Paltz. He chose to return to Ulster County to “bloom where he was planted”.
