Off the grapevine. Crotonblog hears from reliable sources that an Alliance Party candidate was unhappy because Ann Gallelli had the village plow the Gallelli driveway.
Crotonblog immediately contacted Ken Kraft, the Department of Public Works Superintendent, who vehemently denied the allegation. He said, “We wouldn’t do it, it’s against the rules. I wasn’t here this weekend. No, I don’t believe what I’m hearing. I’m kinda shocked. No way we did it. No way would we go up someone’s driveway. We’ve never done it before. Why begin now?” Mr. Kraft continued, “The plows are not allowed to go off the roads. In 12 years with the DPW, I’ve never gotten a call like this before. Never had an allegation. You’re not allowed to do that. I can give you grant assurance that we didn’t.”
To further disprove this desperation tactic by the Alliance Party, in the picture below, Trustee Ann Gallelli’s husband John, holds a copy of today’s Journal News to confirm the date the photo was taken. The photo clearly shows the unplowed condition of the Gallelli driveway.
