Why would the Republican candidate, who almost lost  his bid for reelection as a councilman think he should be the Mayor again in Galloway? Why would this person allegedly bully, harass and promise people jobs for support for his bid for a position that is strictly ceremonial? Why is this person bragging about all he has accomplished as Mayor when the position carries no more weight than anyone else on council. Why did this person have 2 former assemblymen make phone calls for him if he is not promising jobs to people? Why did this Mayor have a local Funeral director pay a visit to one of the newly elected councilmen to ask this person to throw his support for this Mayor? I commend Frank Gargione and Robert Maldonado for not compromising their values to support someone who has cost our town more than 1/2 a million dollars in lawsuit payouts and let's not forget that 2 more that name the Mayor are still pending.
 Why does this councilman from Galloway, who has been accused of violations of the Faulkner act and ethics violations believe he has the right to be the Mayor?
 I can only hope that the other sitting councilmen and the other new councilman do the right thing for our town and elect a new Mayor. 
Now this reelected councilman has received a contract to store impounded cars at his business? The ordinance was changed for him to do so?  There were questions about it being ethic for him to have a towing contract in Galloway what about this new contract?
 Just asking?

Purdy thinks he's King....that's why. Purdy is a huge failure for this town. Numerous lawsuits...Closed the Post Office....Closed Skate Park....Closed restrooms at Patriot Lake. Falsely claims he wants to see recreation areas stay at Municipal Complex all the while....trying to sell it. Purdy claims Galloway has no money....yet they buy an $87,000 lawn mower. Why don't they convert skate park into tennis or basketball courts at Municipal Complex?....Do something for the residents!.... Purdy should realize that his 15 minutes of fame as Mayor are up. Galloway can do better!
