This video is created specifically as a message to the Exeter Police Department.
This video is to assure all of you in the police department that the current incumbent, Supervisor and Chairman of the Board is OUT OF ORDER himself.
His crazy claim that I would cut the force by 30% is an attempt to sow FEAR into the public. Something that no leader should ever attempt to do, confidence, self-assurance and compassion are the key ingredients of a leader.
Is this the leader you want for Exeter Township? My impression is that he is not confident to the point of complete fear and irrationality.
Is he sincere in this email or is he simply attempting to scare his supporters into contributing the $10,000 he claims he needs?
This job doesn't pay much, less than $3,000 a year.
You don't run for Supervisor for the salary, but for the unseen benefits.
YOU WILL READ HIS FEAR AND PARANOIA ESPECIALLY WHEN HE CLAIMS I HATE HIM.
I don't hate you Mr. Galtere, just very disappointed with you.
IT IS GREG GALTERE WE MUST STOP: YOU DECIDE ON NOVEMBER 2ND.
HERE IS THE EMAIL COMPOSED BY CHAIRMAN GALTERE IN ITS ENTIRETY:
--------- Forwarded message --------- From: Greg Galtere firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Thu, Aug 26, 2021 at 13:56 Subject: Supervisor election To: Greg Galtere email@example.com
I hope this email finds you safe and well!
As you probably know, I have decided to run for re-election for Exeter Township Supervisor. To be honest, this is a decision I struggled with. My original plan was to serve two years and then step aside. I have been encouraged by many to reconsider that plan.
I am still very committed to other community service projects such as the Exeter Area Food Pantry and Hack Away at Hunger and Poverty and want to make sure I live up to all my commitments.
I have put a lot of thought into it and feel I will be able to.
Unfortunately, this election is much different than the last time I ran. The stakes are much higher because of my opponent. Last time, I respected my opponent and knew he wanted what was best for the community. I do not feel the same about my opponent in this election.
Here are a few of the reasons:
1. He treats people poorly, especially the township staff. He has said his intentions are to fire the top administrators of the township. You may say one person can’t do that. However, two of the supervisors for next year are supporters of his. He has told people that they will do whatever he tells them to do.
2. He wants to sell Reading Country Club even though we would still owe millions of dollars on it. His position has changed on RCC primarily because of his hatred for me.
3. He has stated that he plans on cutting 30% of the operating budget. While that may appeal to people, it is important to understand what that means: 30% less police officers. 30% less highway department workers to plow snow. 30 % less funding for recreation programs and the library.
Of course, he has no specifics. But these are real possibilities if he is in office.
You can get the sense of what we are dealing with.
I would prefer to write about accomplishments; unfortunately, we need to make our community/voters aware of what could happen if we don’t win.
BOTTOM LINE: I need your help.
This election cannot be won by a handful of people.
Election Day is November 2 which is not that far away.
After November 2, we must live with what is decided.
Don’t be in a position where you say, “I wish I did more to help.”
How can you help?
If you are willing to contribute to my campaign financially, I would appreciate it. All contributions will be spent on the campaign.
We have a strong campaign plan, but it will require $10,000.
Every contribution is needed to help meet that goal. You can be sure that every cent is spent on the campaign.
Checks can be made out to Galtere for Exeter and mailed to 11 Nancy Circle, Reading, PA 19606.
If you give cash, I will need your address.
If you are on Facebook, go to “Galtere for Exeter Township Supervisor” and “like” it. Please also share it with your friends. Social media is the key to local elections in today’s environment.
Will you write a few sentences encouraging people to vote for me, highlighting your reasons for your support? They were very effective last time and helped me keep a constant social media presence.
I need people to help with many tasks such as assembling, delivering and posting yard signs, distributing flyers, helping on Election Day. Let me know if you are willing to help and we will find a job for you.
I’ve had people say to me, “You don’t think people will really vote for him, do you?”
The answer to that question is “yes” for several reasons.
The biggest is they don’t know him and don’t understand what is going on.
Another is they vote straight ticket by party, ignoring who is on the ballot.
We can’t let that happen.
I will appreciate any help I can get.
Thanks for your consideration.:
