GALLOWAY COUNCILMAN ROBERT MALDONADO WALKS OUT OF
COUNCIL MEETING AND IS UNANIMOUSLY CENSURED

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP – At the February 25th Galloway Township Council
Meeting, Councilman Robert Maldonado abruptly announced that he would be leaving
prior to residents addressing council with comments or concerns. He claimed that public
comment was a "hostile work environment" and proceeded to walk out of the meeting. A
motion was made by Councilman Tony DiPietro to censure Maldonado for his actions
and seconded by Councilman Rich Clute. A vote was taken and passed 6-0 with both
Republican and Democrat Councilpeople unanimously agreeing to condemn his behavior.

After his sudden departure, those who attended were left stunned and angered by
his disregard for fielding their questions and concerns. Galloway resident Sharyn
Wildermuth watched the council meeting on Channel 97 and commented that she was
astounded by his refusal to address the people he represents. Council meetings have been
heavily attended recently, primarily by residents voicing their disapproval of
Maldonado’s vote during the Reorganization meeting in January, which removed
Councilman Tony Coppola as Mayor. There have also been accusations of Robert
Maldonado using his office for personal gain and benefitting from public funds.

A petition to recall Councilman Robert Maldonado has been approved by the
Township Clerk and received approval on February 10, 2020 to start collecting
signatures. The recall committee consists of former mayor Tom Bassford, Annamarie
DeLuccia, Chis Coleman and other concerned residents. For more information visit the
