GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP — Residents will choose four township council members and four school board members Tuesday, Nov. 7.

Republican Mayor Don Purdy and Councilmen Timothy Meadows, Robert Maldonado and Frank Gargione are running for re-election.

They face challenges from Democratic candidates Jim Gorman, Mary Crawford, Walead Abdrabough and Frank Santo.

In the June 6 primary, Gorman received the most votes with 1,153. He was followed by Santo (1,121), Crawford (1,137), Abdrabough (1,101), Purdy (845), Gargione (797), Meadows (790), and Maldonado (789).

The candidates are running for four-year terms.

On the Greater Egg Harbor Regional Board of Education, Margaret M. Guenther, of the Cologne section of Galloway, is running unopposed to retain her seat for a three-year term.

On the Galloway Board of Education, incumbents Michael Greb, John W. Knorr and Ernest D. Huggard, the school board president, are running for re-election against a challenge from Sherri Parmenter. Three terms of three years each are available.

Also, school board member James Gentile is running unchallenged for re-election to fill the final two years of an unexpired term. He was chosen by the board in January to fill in for a candidate who won her seat last November but decided not serve her term.
