Tarah Probst

Tarah Probst is the current mayor of Stroudsburg with a background in marketing. She helped business owners grow and connect with customers the same way she speaks with, understands, and helps her constituents. In 2016, she opened a downtown restaurant to be a part of the community she serves. Probst entered politics when the local school board closed two elementary schools, including her son’s. While her efforts to stop the school closings failed, she successfully ran a campaign to unseat board members. As mayor, she has been fiscally responsible and provided savings to her taxpayers. Every day she works with citizens and business to address their concerns, including better promotion of community events. Mayor Probst’s experience and accomplishments as mayor, and membership in a wide array of organizations, uniquely situates her as a perfect candidate to represent the residents of the 40th Senatorial district.
