It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of
Town of Newburgh Town Clerk Andrew Zarutskie on
April 2, 2019. Andrew has been the Town Clerk since 2002.
He dedicated his life to public service, having spent 28 years
as Press Secretary to the late Benjamin A. Gilman.
When someone appeared at Andrew's office, he made their
request a top priority. Andrew would also open the office
on Saturdays to make it easier to serve the public.
Andrew placed a plaque outside his office which states,
“This office belongs to the People of the Town of Newburgh.”
The Town mourns the loss of a great public servant and friend.
