Battlelines drawn in Boardman

By Bertram de Souza (Contact)

Published January 25, 2009

If there was any doubt about how the election for Boardman Township trustee will play out, just listen to the two incumbents who are seeking to retain their seats, Kathy Miller and Atty. Robyn Gallitto. Indeed, if words were lethal weapons, Gallitto and Miller would be sporting major wounds.

Recently, the two women and their colleague, Larry Moliterno, were guests on "The Valley's Talkin'" on 1330 TALK WGFT hosted by Dr. William Binning and this writer and the tension between Miller and Gallitto was so thick, you could cut it with a knife. Gallitto wasn't even in the studio. She participated in the discussion about Boardman via cell phone.

Any hopes of a ceasefire were dashed when Miller was kept out of the deliberations concerning who would serve as chairman and vice chairman. She contends  she found out that Moliterno was going to be the chair and Gallitto the vice chair only after the trustees went into executive session. She will get her revenge.

So now the battlelines are drawn and even though two incumbents are seeking re-election, it is a given that each will have a candidate to challenge the other.

If this was the same show I heard, it was moved backed to the studio from Panera's due to technical problems. And via cellphone Gallitto stated how disappointed she was with the move as there were a lot of people at the Trustees meeting that said were looking forward to going to Panera's. Uh, there were about 3 people at this meeting, Robyn.

Regarding Miller, the motions for chair and vice-chair were made during the public session in front of the aforementioned 3 people.

These two remind us of the favorite old joke, "How do you know when a politician is lying? His lips are moving."

Kathy Miller has to be the most clueless trustee in my 42 year residency in Boardman. Time and again, Miller questions either what she previously had voten on; or, what has been discussed at public meetings. And, she still is having trouble with the budget (the many she has approved). She is a pathetic excuse for a trustee!
