TRENTON, NJ - On June 2, 2018, the State of New Jersey held the Jefferson Awards Ceremony for Public Service at the Trenton War Memorial.  Clark resident, Ed Dubroski, was the proud recipient of New Jersey State Governor’s Jefferson Award for Public Service due to his environmental stewardship to eliminate Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCBs) from locomotive engines and engine roundhouses.  

As International President Emeritus of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers (BLE); an international railroad union representing approximately 70,000 train engineers in the United States and Canada; Dubroski was instrumental in fighting to eliminate the cancer causing chemical from locomotive engines and roundhouses.  In addition to his environmental work as Past President of the BLE, Mr. Dubroski has served on the Clark Township Environmental Committee for 8 years.

The Jefferson Awards are the nation's oldest and most prestigious recognition program for volunteer public service of the United States Senate.  Mr. Dubroski’s Environmental Stewardship Award specifically recognized volunteers who pioneered and promoted energy conservation and environmental action to foster a clean, green, sustainable environment and/or those individuals who establish or revitalize conservation practices and public awareness within the local, state, national or global community.
