Team Gallo Raised Nearly 50% More
Than Cross-Endorsed Incumbent Spinello In First Half of 2015
Glen Cove, NY – According to recently released campaign finance disclosures, Tony Gallo and his team outraised incumbent mayor Reggie Spinello by nearly 50% in the first half of 2015.
Along with his six-member slate of City Council candidates, Gallo, a two-term Republican councilman, raised a total of $52,751, compared to the $35,880 brought in by Spinello, a member of the Independence Party backed by both the local Democratic and Republican committees.
Team Gallo’s support came largely from small donors, with sub-$200 donations accounting for 34% of the total, compared with 24% of Spinello’s support. Gallo appears to have caught the attention of voters more so than corporations. Among donations just from individuals, Gallo’s total of $42,873 more than doubled Spinello’s $20,205.
Attended by the “Who’s Who of Glen Cove”, the Team Gallo fundraiser held on June 24, 2015 at the Metropolitan was crowded with well-wishers. The Hon. Anthony Gallo Jr., Republican candidate and present city council member, gave a heartfelt speech targeting the problems in Glen Cove. Touching on his platform, Gallo believes the City government must be more attentive to protecting the City's assets, specifically citing his concerns regarding over-development and our current financial situation. Applause was overwhelming as supporters reacted to Gallo’s refreshing voice. His straightforward call to action, "Let’s Make Glen Cove great!" was met with a standing ovation.
Team Gallo is proud to introduce its slate of City Council candidates. The group is comprised of a highly qualified slate of long-time Glen Covers, each of whom brings to the team a unique combination of key talents and experience.
Tony Gallo is the only registered Republican running for Mayor of Glen Cove. Anyone claiming that any candidate is "official" before the Primary is either confused or deliberately attempting to mislead the voters. The Gallo team has been getting petitions signed from Glen Cove Republicans so that the People of Glen Cove will actually have a democratic choice to vote for someone other than Independence Party member Reginald Spinello. It is the people who need to determine the Mayor of our City, and not the politically connected.
Voters belonging to the Republican Party will choose that Party's official candidate in the primary election to be held on Thursday, September 10th. Until then, Team Gallo will be hard at work meeting with the community, speaking with the community, and earning the trust of the community.
