Ernest Reock Jr. Still Hard at Work—20 Years Post-Retirement

Ernest Reock

One would be hard pressed to find a local government official in New Jersey whose career has not been touched by the work of Ernest Reock Jr. 

Tax assessors, borough clerks, township engineers, business administrators, zoning officials, code inspectors, public safety directors—pretty much all significant officials needed to run a city or town—obtain their professional imprimaturs through coursework developed, taught, or overseen by Reock during his six-decade affiliation with Rutgers’ Center for Government Services (CGS).

Officially, Reock retired as CGS Director in 1992. Unofficially, he is still working nearly 20 years later. While he may have traded his suits and ties for flannel shirts and khakis, he is no less devoted to his projects. At 87, Reock puts in 25 hours a week in his New Brunswick office doing research and teaching part time.
