Adubato Tribute: Pat Sebold

By David Wildstein, October 17 2020 10:52 am

Essex County Freeholder Patricia Sebold issued the following statement on the death of Newark leader Stephen Adubato, Sr.:

“Steve Adubato was a special friend of mine. I first got to know him in 1970 when he ran to be the Democratic Chair of Essex County. He lost when only Livingston and the North Ward of Newark supported him! From that point on I became good friends with Steve and Fran and got to know his kids! For years I always spent time at the North Ward Center and went to every event they had. Steve was a unique individual and always did so much for all the residents of the North Ward. From the Robert Treat Academy to Casa Israel, nothing stopped him from moving forward with ideas to help all. Steve was a legacy and no one can offer what he did for our society.”
