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.”

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.
