Stanley Strelish has been active in Luzerne County Democratic politics for decades, including past stints as treasurer of the Dupont Democratic Organization and as a member of the Third District Democratic Committee.
He said in 2003 he was inspired to pursue work in public service by his late father, John, who served as a longtime Dupont borough secretary and tax collector.
Some highlights:
• 1986-1994: Strelish was elected to two, four-year terms on the Pittston Area School Board, serving one year as board president and three years as Pittston Area's representative on the Wilkes-Barre Area Career and Technical Center board.
• 1995: He considered running for Luzerne County Recorder of Deeds but backed off when veteran officeholder Frank Castellino announced he was seeking another term.
• 1999: When Castellino opted out of running again, Strelish competed for the elected county row office.
Strelish told voters he would turn over his business, Strelish Trucking Co., to a relative if he were elected and punch a time clock to prove he was at work. Attorney C.J. Bufalino won the Democratic nomination, beating Strelish and three other contenders.
• 2003: Strelish took another shot at the county recorder of deeds seat, winning the Democratic nomination over Joseph Infantino, who barely campaigned.
• 2005: The county Transportation Authority hired Strelish for an unadvertised position as assistant executive director for $43,000. The position had been vacant for more than two years, and authority members said Strelish was the only applicant. Strelish, who attended Bloomsburg and Wilkes universities but never earned a degree, had expressed a repeated interest in the position, an authority member said at the time.
• 2006: Strelish is appointed executive director of the authority.

The letter, addressed to LCTA Executive Director Stanley Strelish, says PennDOT consultants reviewed ridership data from 2005 through 2012 and found significant "overstated senior citizen trips."
The authority has denied those allegations, although Strelish admitted last May that drivers had been miscounting senior riders - in some cases doubling and triple counting.
Strelish could not be immediately reached for comment Thursday afternoon.

LCTA Executive Director Stanley Strelish and Operations Director Robb Henderson were arrested Wednesday on criminal charges related to those passenger counts.
Eight bus drivers testified to a grand jury that Strelish and Henderson instructed and pressured them into inflating passenger counts by threatening layoffs if state funding decreased because of declining ridership.
They gave Stanley whatever he wanted."
Turinski testified to the grand jury that Strelish complained to him in private conversations that the drivers would not "press the button," and that "if they didn't start, there would be layoffs with drivers and mechanics."
Turinski testified Strelish hesitated, then said "COLTS does it," referring to the County of Lackawanna Transit System.
"Stanley said to me, 'Mr.
We have $7 million in the bank,' " Conway said, noting that Strelish was referring to a surplus the authority accumulated over his tenure.
Strelish "pulled the strings.
