Robert G. Ortt has served as Mayor of North Tonawanda since January 1, 2010.  Prior to becoming Mayor, Rob served as the City Treasurer and then, Clerk-Treasurer of North Tonawanda.  On April 3, 2007 he was appointed as City Treasurer by the Common Council.  On November 6, 2007 he was elected to serve a four-year term by his fellow citizens, which began on January 1, 2008 when he was officially sworn in at City Hall.  On November 4, 2008, the people of North Tonawanda voted to eliminate the position of City Clerk and combined the offices of the City Clerk and City Treasurer to form one position of Clerk-Treasurer, making Rob the first ever City official to hold that title.

Rob enlisted in NY Army National Guard in October 2001 in direct response to the attacks on September 11th.  He is a veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan, where he served from March 2008 until December of the same year.  His mission was to serve as a combat mentor/advisor to the Afghan National Police in Kandahar City, the second largest city in Afghanistan.  As the Executive Officer /Unit Movement Officer for an infantry company, he was responsible to ensure that all the logistical needs of the company were met to facilitate operational readiness, coordinate and run all company meetings, and act as the commander in his absence.  He successfully moved $10 million worth of equipment to Afghanistan and back to the United States.

He is the recipient of the Bronze Star, the Army Commendation Medal, the Afghan Campaign Medal and the Combat Infantryman’s Badge in recognition of his service. 

Previous to becoming entering public service, Rob served as an independent personal financial analyst with Primerica Financial Services, where he held multiple licenses including the series 6 & 63 investment licenses, mortgage brokers, and NYS life insurance license.  He specialized in assisting middle income families to reduce their debt and save enough to be able to retire with dignity. 

Rob lives in North Tonawanda with his wife Meghan.
