An Evening With Mayoral Candidate Councilman Darrin Sharif

Councilman Sharif was elected as the Central Ward Council Member in June 2010. He was born and raised in Newark, attending Newark Public Schools, and eventually graduating magna Cum Laude from Rutgers University-Newark campus.


Over the last 33 years Councilman Sharif has been actively involved with public service and electoral politics. After an early introduction to the political process, he has since played critical roles in campaigns to elect local officials to the Newark Public School Board and the Newark Municipal Council. He also developed a detailed knowledge of county government while serving as Deputy Chief of Staff and Confidential Aide to former Essex County Executive Nicholas A. Amato and as an Assistant to the Director of Administrative Services for the Essex County Sheriff’s Office. His understanding of the complexities of local government increased during a two-year period from 1998 to 2000 when he served on the Newark Municipal Council staff.

Come hear his ideas about Tech in Newark and how he plans to execute them if he is elected Mayor.
