Former Bergen County executive assumes role on Port Authority Board of CommissionersWilliam "Pat" Schuber , alum in nj.com, July 28, 2011
Former Bergen County Executive William "Pat" Schuber was welcomed as the newest member of the Port Authority Board of Commissioners, after having been nominated to the post by Gov. Chris Christie in April.
Schuber, 63, who had served as a state Assemblyman and mayor of Bogota, retired from public office in 2002 after three terms as county executive.
Since then, Schuber has spent much of his time teaching, as an associate professor at the School of Administrative Science at Petrocelli College, Fairleigh Dickinson University. A graduate of Fordham Law School, Schuber has also been an "of counsel" attorney with the law firm DeCotiis, FitzPatrick & Cole in Teaneck.
Schuber, a Republican, replaces Anthony Coscia as one of six New Jersey commissioners on the 12-member Port Authority board.
Coscia, a Democrat, was appointed by Gov. Jim Florio in 2003, and had chaired the agency for eight years before passing the gavel in January to Christie’s one other appointee, David Samson. Samson, a fellow Republican, told Schuber, "We all look forward to working with you in the coming years."
