Since Pittston’s founding, a number of individuals have held the position of chief executive of the government.   While a Borough, from 1853 to 1894, the chief executive held the title of “Burgess.” Pittson’s first burgess was John Hosie who served as Burgess from 1853 to 1854.

Since incorporation as a Third Class City in December 1894, the chief executive of Pittston City has been the “Mayor.” Seen at left, is a photo of Pittston City’s first mayor – Hon. Thomas Maloney, who served as the city’s mayor from 1894 to 1898
