This Day in History: 1955-03-03
The recently reorganized Mahwah Republican Club announced its support of William Drobesh as County Committeeman from District 2, West Mahwa. Drobesh, who had been active in many civic activities in the district was to oppose the incumbent, John J. Warhol Jr., Town and School Board attorney. The Club describing itself as the first fluff-fledged GOP group in Mahwah’s history, supported Drobesh as a part of its aefforts to remove Republican politics from the hands of what it described as a “small clique”. Drobesh was a former member of the school board and had been particularly active in the VFW. He was former Mahwah and Bergen County Commander and was then serving as District Commender of the New Jersey Department of the VFW. He was a fireman an Elk and had chaired the Mahwa Boy Scout fund drives for several years.
