Galloway votes for more personal contracts, more lawsuits and higher taxes. Only in NJ with a Governor that purposely changes elections just to secure votes. If only Christie knew how he screwed Galloway with giving us Purdy back. What a waste.

Well, if you don't like the results, you're welcome to put your home up for sale. Right Ron? Does that mean you're moving? I can name a few people that would make Galloway a better place if they moved.

OK....let's get all the litter (read as political signs) cleaned up and move on....tough one to digest but so be it.

Sometimes intense reporting, to put it mildly, can have an opposite effect on a situation. Like Fox News, Galloway Township News seems have an overload of information to report. The public can't or doesn't want to digest all that is shoveled at them. Time to turn it down a notch? Remember if you give a person enough rope, they will ultimately hang themselves.

Did they process the absentee ballots yet? if not, do you know when they will?

They are being processed by the County. Very preliminary reports are being released but the County should certify the votes by early next week. The numbers are still showing all four Republicans as winning.

Just as you can look at the state of our country and wonder how in the world could Americans re-elect such a horrible President with such a bad record, You can say the same for Galloway Township residents. In most cases, someone that has had multiple lawsuits, an out of control government, and numerous ethics violations would have been kicked out of office. In Galloway (especially in the Republican party), that gets you re-elected. In both cases it shows ill informed sheeple, and the power of a political party.
