To the editor: 

I just wanted to take this opportunity to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to Freeholder Richard Dase for his support for, and assistance in, getting funding for the kitchen at the Galloway Township Senior Center.

The kitchen will be a much needed facility in providing lunches for the seniors on a regular basis. We have been waiting for this facility for quite some time now, and are elated that it is finally coming to be.

To the editor:

On Tuesday, Oct. 1, senatorial candidate Steve Lonegan had a fundraiser at the Smithville Inn, owned and operated by Galloway’s deputy mayor, Tony Coppola. 

At that meeting Lonegan stated that he supports the shutdown of the federal government and further trivialized the shutdown by adding, “You know, if the only inconvenience is we’re shutting down national parks – I think we can live through that.”

To the editor: 

I took a moment to go through the past few years of newspaper stories about Galloway Township.  I was deeply troubled to see the number of times the words “layoff,” “lawsuit” or “settlement” were in them.

. . To the editor:

As a former public works director, I have great concern over our underappreciated and understaffed public works department.

The Galloway Township Department of Public Works has lost 20 employees through attrition and layoffs in the last five years. Leaf season and winter operations are on the horizon. There are growing concerns if the department will be able to handle an influx of duties such as snow removal and leaf pickup on top of their day-to-day maintenance plans.

Letter: We were never supposed to forget, but Absegami did Letter: We were never supposed to forget, but Absegami did To the editor:

Churches were once the hub of communities responsible for teaching and preserving our local heritage, values, and traditions.  Children were taught community pride and an understanding of what their town held near and dear to its heart.

Today schools are the purveyor of these duties. But what happens to a town when this doesn’t happen?
