Dan Troy's recent Campaign Committee filing revealed that he has around $161, 000 on hand. Trustee Chris Galloway knows he does not have a chance of raising that kind of money. However, Galloway was reported to have pulled petitions, but has not filed.
Our guess is Galloway WILL NOT file petitions for County Commissioner.
So, what is Galloway up to?
A likely theory is Galloway signed out nominating petitions in order to float his name "out there" for some self serving reasons. What reason you ask? Well Well.
It seems that Galloway wants to keep the field of republican candidates clear. Galloway wants to keep the field clear so that he can leverage a "deal" out of Dan Troy to keep him (Galloway) out of the race.
Basically, Galloway is looking for a "payoff" to stay out of the race. An appointment? Some business thrown to Red State Strategies...what ever Galloway can get.
Updated thought: Chris Galloway lost the race for OH-62. Galloway was Former State Rep. Callender's legislative aide. Hmmm. Galloway could not win his old boss' seat (I know...it's really the people's...yeah yeah), against Lorraine Fende...yet, he thinks he can win county-wide? No...I don't think Trustee Galloway thinks he can win...let alone raise the six figures it will take to win. Our bet is still on Galloway hoping for some sort of "pay off" to stay out of the Commissioner's race...you don't think Dan Troy wants to work at getting elected do you?
Disclaimer: We are NOT insinuating some sort of illegal activity when we say pay off...merely...that a "better opportunity" would present itself to Galloway via Dan Troy.
