A Loss in Our Community...


We are incredibly sadden to hear of the passing of longtime Democratic Mayor of Middlesex Borough, Ronald S. Dobies, this past Sunday, April 2nd, 2023. He was 84 years old.

Born in 1939 in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Mayor Dobies and his wife, Blanche, have lived in Middlesex Borough since the 1970s. Following his service as a provost marshal in the United States Army in Germany, he received a degree in Chemistry and Philosophy from the University of Scranton.

Mayor Dobies was a dedicated public servant who made history as one of New Jersey's longest-tenured Mayors. From his first elected position as a member of the Board of Education back in 1970 to his most recent term as Mayor from 2011-2015, Mayor Dobies loved Middlesex Borough and worked hard to make our little town an even better place to live and raise a family. For all of his accomplishments, Mayor Dobies was inducted to the 1999 inaugural class of the New Jersey League of Municipalities' New Jersey Elected Officials Hall of Fame.

He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. May God Bless him and his loved ones, always.
