Roberta Gottfried Meluskey has been by Alex’s side for 25 years. Together they have faced the challenges of being a young couple trying to make it, the challenges of small business owners, and the greatest challenge of all, being parents.
Born and raised in Perth Amboy, NJ, the daughter of Sheldon and Mona Gottfried, Roberta and her sister Lori learned the virtues of good parenting and traditional values at an early age. Values that she and Alex were able to pass along to their adult children Nicholas and Juliana.
Having worked from an early age Roberta has been able to help her husband thrive in his business life and on the campaign trail. With a B.S. in accounting and decision sciences from Rider University, she has worked side by side with Alex as Optimum Graphics got off the ground, and she is now serving in his campaign as the Finance Chair.
Roberta and Alex live in Scottsdale, Arizona. Their children are currently undergraduates at Arizona State University.
