Rockland lawmaker fights to keep home after foreclosure

Longtime Rockland County Legislator Douglas Jobson is fighting to keep his home after he defaulted on his mortgage and the house was put up for auction last month.

The Stony Point Republican's 10 Hoke Drive house was foreclosed on in January, according to court documents. The house was sold at auction — well below what he still owed on his delinquent mortgage — on March 29.

Jobson, who has been on the Legislature since 1998,  ran unopposed last year and was re-elected to another four-year term. He is a member of the county's Budget and Finance Committee and was named deputy minority leader . He works in gas operations at Orange & Rockland Utilities, where he has been employed since 1991.

A judgment of foreclosure issued Jan. 7 showed Jobson owed $473,312.24 to Deutsche Bank National Trust Co., according to court documents.

Jobson said he was still living in the home.

“Life is what it is but, I mean, the bottom line is it’s my responsibility for falling behind, and hopefully I just go through a loan modification and then take a little step backward and get myself back on track and go forward, hopefully," Jobson said. “Once the banks get a hold of you, it’s very frustrating.
