Adubato stepping down as Newark center head
Adubato insists that the move is not intended to free up time for political maneuvering, but the timing is pretty provacative.
The mayoral elections are just around the corner for anyone interested in making a run at City Hall, and it will be interesting to see how the Audobato factor plays into the campaign.
“What it means now is I can concentrate on development. I’m involved with building a new institution that has to do with children with autism and other types of problems. Right now I’m burdened down with operations,” said Adubato, 75.
Adubato said the move is not designed to allow him to focus on politics. As head of the center, he also built a political machine powerful enough to oust incumbents and elevate neophytes.
“People see me as a politician and I am. I love politics. But the point is that I’m a community developer. Politics is part of what we do to accomplish our goal of serving the community,” Adubato said.
