He is a graduate of Sto-Rox Senior High School and received a bachelors degree in public administration from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 1972. Kotik went on to work for Allegheny County as a payroll accountant, municipal representative, and property assessor.
Prior to being elected, he served as assistant to former state Rep. Fred Trello and also as manager of Robinson Township, where he currently resides. Kotik has held elected office as a borough controller and two-term council member and has received many appointments, including president of the McKees Rocks Planning Commission, member of the Sto-Rox Bicentennial Committee and ordinance officer and treasurer for McKees Rocks Borough.
