Thaddeus Kobylarz - Borough Council Mayor

Thad Kobylarz


Borough Council



Thaddeus Kobylarz is a councilman in Chatham Borough with a wealth of experience both in the private sector and in local government. Thad is committed to keeping Chatham the town it is by preserving the Borough's distinct character, while at the same time revitalizing the Main Street business district and the industrial zones on the Passaic River. He believes these challenges can be met, all while keeping tax increases to an absolute minimum in the process.


Thad Kobylarz said he got involved in politics to help preserve Chatham's small-town character while finding ways for the borough to cope with increasing costs despite flat revenue.


He believes redevelopment of the downtown area with multi-use construction, including housing and retail space, would raise the borough's costs for services, such as sewer capacity, as well as increase traffic and the need for parking.He earned a doctorate from Columbia University, a law degree from Oxford University, and degrees in law and business from the University of Pennsylvania.

Like many of you, the members of Team Chatham (Treloar, Koronkiewicz, and Kobylarz) love Chatham Borough's small-town feel and quaint charm. We want to preserve those qualities, while also investing in "smart redevelopment" to keep up with the rising costs of providing municipal services. Team Chatham wants to attract economically sustainable businesses to our downtown and River Road. Not only will it ensure our town's economic sustainability for the coming years, it will beautify our downtown and bring many desirable new restaurants, shops and services within walking distance, increasing the value of your home.


Will you help support Team Chatham's vision?
