I would like to take this opportunity to enthusiastically endorse Deputy Mayor Robert Gallop for re-election to the Chatham Township Committee. Mr. Gallop has spent the past six years unselfishly working towards making Chatham Township one of the best towns in New Jersey to live in. In addition to having tremendous integrity, a love for Chatham, and an unending enthusiasm, he is a true “people person” in the best sense of the phrase.
Deputy Mayor Gallop has served two terms on the Committee and has accomplished tremendous goals. He is fiscally responsible and fiscally conservative. As a result, there were no new tax increases during the last three years. In fact, this year, Chatham residents actually enjoyed a tax decrease. Along with taking greater fiscal responsibility, Deputy Mayor Gallop has also provided a heightened attention to public and school safety with the implementation of new communication systems and the installation of defibrillators on all athletic fields. As a member of the Board of Education, I am especially appreciative of the Deputy Mayor’s ability to bridge the gap between Chatham’s Police Department and school officials, as now both act together for the safety of our children. This accomplishment highlights Mr. Gallop’s ability to recognize a need to set goals, and to satisfy that need, by working hard to accomplish those goals.
For the past six years, Deputy Mayor Robert Gallop has worked tirelessly to make Chatham Township a great place to live. His desire to serve is not driven by ego, self motivation, or personal agenda. Bob’s proactive actions are motivated by the strong desire to make Chatham Township the best place it can be for the entire tax paying community.
His experience, leadership, and accomplishments simply demand re-election.
I encourage everyone in Chatham to cast their vote for Robert Gallop for Chatham Township Committee on June 4, 2013.
