Bob Pawlowski - Together For Summit

Bob Pawlowski
Summit Common Council
Ward 1

Bob has lived in Summit for nearly 40 years.  Growing up in the Hill City, Bob learned the true meaning of community from Summit’s institutions and residents.  Bob credits Summit, the confluence of all it has given him over four decades, and most importantly, its people, for who he is today.

Bob graduated from Lincoln (now Lincoln-Hubbard) School, Summit Junior High School (now LCJSMS), and Summit High School.  From there, Bob studied history at Bucknell University where he chaired his fraternity’s philanthropy committee, was a “Bucknell Buddy” (university big brother/big sister program), was a student government representative, and played club lacrosse.  Bob received a Juris Doctor from the Seton Hall University School of Law and clerked in the Superior Court of New Jersey.  Since then, he has made a career in commercial litigation, primarily assisting policyholders in insurance recovery matters.

Bob lives across the street from his childhood home, where his parents still reside, with his wife, daughter (a junior at Kent Place), and son (an 8th Grader at LCJSMS).  Bob has coached youth sports in Summit (boys and girls lacrosse, boys and girls basketball, and flag football) from 2010 through 2022; served as an officer for the Summit Bar Association (Treasurer, Vice President, and President); and is currently on the boards of the Summit and Hilltopper Lacrosse Clubs.  Although Bob’s coaching days are over (at least for now), he stays involved through his work with the lacrosse clubs, and repairing and stringing lacrosse sticks for our youth and several charities.

Bob has spent his career working with and for others to solve problems using a holistic approach – no solution should trade one problem for another.  If elected, Bob will take the same approach to our local challenges.  He will encourage the Common Council to engage in transparent processes, make candid assessments of issues, and perform qualitative evaluations of the costs, as well as the benefits, of proposed measures.  Bob is running for Common Council in the hopes of giving something back – or at least paying a little forward for all Summit has given him.
