REPUBLICAN BOB SYPNIEWSKI TO ANNOUNCE CANDIDACY FOR LUZERNE COUNTY CONTROLLER
Republican Bob Sypniewski, of Dallas, will announce his candidacy for Luzerne County Controller at a public reception at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 14, at Luzerne County Republican Headquarters, 25 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre.
Sypniewski, a self-employed mortgage consultant for 10 years, is the CEO of 5:19 Investments, a company dedicated to raising joint venture capital for business projects throughout the state. He said his recent service on the Luzerne County Assessment Appeals Board was a major factor in his decision to run for controller.
“As I helped people through the appeals process, I saw the harm government can inflict on its citizens when it is poorly run,” he said. “As a lifelong resident of the county, I decided that I could no longer simply sit back and watch a steady stream of politicians put their own self interest above the interests of the people they were chosen to represent.”
Sypniewski is the 15th of 16 children of Wilkes-Barre Police Officer Stanley Sypniewski and Blanche Sypniewski. He was born and raised in the city’s Heights section and was graduated from GAR Memorial High School and attended Luzerne County Community College where he majored in human services.
He is on the board of the Pennsylvania Family Coalition and is an active member of the Cross Creek Community Church, Trucksville. He and his wife of 11 years, Tara Harteis, have three children, Christian, 9, Ethan, 7, and Gavin, 5.
