Andy Stewart was elected as Orangetown Supervisor in November, 2011 and was re-elected to a second 2-year term in 2013. Prior to serving as Supervisor, Stewart was CEO of Keep Rockland Beautiful for ten years, leading community cleanup, beautification and educational efforts. Stewart worked closely with volunteer groups, schools, highway, building, and health departments to reduce blight and promote quality of life and environmental awareness. His work removing several wrecked cars from the Sparkill Creek on Clausland Mountain, was featured in an episode of a reality TV series.

As Supervisor, Stewart has focused his efforts on fiscal responsibility, promotion of economic development, and protection of quality of life. He has held the town budget under the NYS tax cap in each of his first three years as Supervisor, and has successfully brought the spiraling deficits at Broadacres Golf Course under control by persuading the Town Board to lease the facility to an private management company, Applied Golf.

Under Andy’s leadership, Orangetown’s economy is growing, and the town is attracting new businesses. After years of delay, the first part of Orangeburg Commons was completed in 2013, including the opening of the Stop & Shop supermarket and Marriott hotel. Andy led efforts to open the Bloomberg and the Ramland Road datacenters, and supports these low-impact, high tax-paying commercial developments.

Andy knows that economic development must not come at the expense of our quality of life. He rejected attempts to “downzone” residential land in Blauvelt for an industrial project that belonged elsewhere, and he opposed the controversial Anellotech and “Hillside” projects in Pearl River. He has given the public has easy access to all relevant documents from these applications on the town’s website.

Born and raised in New Hampshire, Stewart graduated from Wesleyan University where he met his wife, Rachel Grob, a Rockland native. They moved to the Nyack area over twenty years ago to raise a family and now have two children, Jonah and Talia, a rescue dog named Choco, and a cat.

Stewart served on the Orangetown Planning Board, participated in Leadership Rockland and the Pace University Land Use Leadership Alliance, chaired the Rockland County Water Quality Committee, and won the Journal News “40 Under 40 Award".

During the 1990s, Stewart completed field research on park management in Central America, earned a PhD in geography from Rutgers and taught environmental policy classes at Vassar, Bard, Ramapo and other area colleges.

In addition to serving as Town Supervisor, Stewart acts as liaison for the Town Board to the Parks Committee and the Environmental Committee. He is also a member of the Blauvelt Lions Club, the Nyack NAACP, the Nyack Boat Club, and the Sparkill Watershed Alliance, has coached youth soccer, and served on the Nyack Parking Authority, among other activities.

Stewart's hobbies include sailing, brewing beer, hiking, jogging, playing ping pong and reading the news and poetry.
